i would much rather see pearl jam on the polo fields than springsteen
Pearl Jam would be such a great add. I always wondered if they would fit in at Coachella. Either way, a fantastic band... especially live
pearl jam @ main stage OR ed vedder solo @ outdoor stage please...
Pearl Jam added on to this lineup would make this the best fucking Coachella.
Please be added on to Saturday.
i hate that i came in here and got my hopes up......
anyways... YES PLEASE!!!
Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)
- PEARL JAM WHY YOU HATE COACHELLA? -
Good original post, interesting points. I've never seen PJ so I wouldnt mind. Wasnt there a Soundgarden rumor floating around?

The Killers are NOT better than Pearl Jam.
SXSW - 3/7 - 3/16
The National/Warpaint - 4/21 - Moody Theater
Mogwai - 4/24 - Emo's
Tycho - 5/1 - The Parish
Austin Psych Fest - 5/2 - 5/4 - Carson Creek Ranch
have you even listened to a pearl jam album since ten? More importantly, were you even alive when it came out? Just because a band spawned (i admit) numerous wannabes doesnt mean that the inspiration wasnt worthy. The same can be said about zeppellin, the stones, u2, the beatles...you can say that about the pioneers of any genre. Claiming that the Killers are better than pearl jam or that pj is the equivalent of creed or nickelback just shows how uninformed and irrelevant your opinion is. Let me speak electronica for you - it's like me saying Steve Aoki is better than Daft Punk.

well said... took the words right out of my mouth.... I'd say this person is under 22... just missed out on the early-mid 90's....
Pick up any of their released "bootleg" shows from the past 8 years...might not make you love them... hopefully you'll have some respect, at least.....
So what if they pioneered a genre of music, the genre they started is the reason most rock music is shit. Pearl Jam in my eyes simply destroyed rock music. To even compare them with the likes of Zeppelin is seriously a fucking travesty. No I am not under the age of 22, I happen to be much older and I witnessed the 90's scene, not a fan. I just can't stand the tone of Vedders voice I feel like I have to take a shower everytime I hear it, seriously greasy shit.
I won't get my hopes up, but I am in agreement that signing Pearl Jam to a Saturday would do a lot of good toward repairing what, at the moment looks like a horrible day of bands. TV on the Radio being the only saving grace.
Morrissey; the greatest musician of all time.
Again, just because other bands and record labels saw a hit and poorly tried to copy it does not make Pearl Jam bad.
Pearl Jam is a relevant headliner -- Goldenvoice promoted just about all of their early shows (and perhaps more, I don't keep a scorecard) in LA, the polo field show was one of the inspirations for Coachella, three members are from seminal Sub Pop bands, and -- believe it or not -- they are actually pretty good live. While I may not care for the uberjocky fans they attract or the bands that tried to copy them, I'm not going to fault Pearl Jam for it.
It's funny -- there are a handful of bands on this year's lineup who I feel only exist because Franz Ferdinand became popular, but I'm not going to write Franz Ferdinand (or Arcade Fire, or Bloc Party, or LCD Soundsystem) off because of it.
I want Pearl Jam on saturday so we can throw shoes at the singer.
Im down as long as Daft Punk is in the Sahara at the same time!
Pearl Jam....Sat night.....YES, PLEASE!!!!
i tried posting this video on here...how do i do it??
