    ... because Pavement isn't nearly as popular as either. Are you completely oblivious as to how festival lineups work?

    Indeed.

    I'm one of those diehards who bought tickets for NYC in September, even though I knew they'd probably play Coachella, too. Malkmus/Jicks were one of my favorite sets in 2008, and they pulled an impressive mid-afternoon crowd at the Outdoor Theatre.

    I can see Pavement as a subheadliner on the Coachella Stage. Even with the whole reunion aspect, that's as high up the food chain as I can see them being. And I'd have said the same for Blur, who I also adore.

    Here's the thing guys: when sites like Billboard talk about who's "headlining" Coachella, haven't you all noticed that they don't really differentiate between headlining and subheadlining? Like last year all those big trades would say that the fest was being headlined by Paul, The Cure, The Killers, and also subs like Amy Winehouse. They seem to consider all of it headlining. So I think the article is probably likely to be accurate under their definition.

    But no, never in a million years could Pavement actually headline Coach. Mostly because punk sucks.

    i thought these rumors about them headlining came from interviews done around the time of last year's lineup announement, when they talked about how they wanted to headline and weren't interested in doing it otherwise..

    I believe Randy has confused 'Pavement' with 'Refused.'

    Speaking of which, Refused would be a great reunion.

    There's absolutely no way Pavement could headline. If Portishead couldn't do it, then Pavement definitely couldn't do it.

    Stop dancing around the question. Who do you like? Who are some of your favorite all time artists? Who are you currently digging? I am not asking this in an acusatory manner. I am just curious.

    Walk into a Best Buy. See how much JJ and Killers material you can find. Then see how many Pavement CDs you can find.

    There's your answer.

    Better and Popular are two totally different things.

    See, we actually have pretty similar taste in music. I don't understand why you get so huffy some of the times.
