    Neither. They're terrific, but certainly not "the best."

    I am soooo--- looking forward to this show. I am one of 80,000 lucky fans to get tickets to this festival, so I am going to enjoy the madness of this show.
    I am not a RATM fanatic, but I do enjoy music and I also anjoy this festival. I just want to have fun.
    I know that everyone just hopes that there won't be pushing and shoving, which I agree with too, but I think it won't be too bad. We are all grown up enough to not let anyone get hurt.

    Yeah I'm not much of a fan either, but I think this is gonna be a really special show. I'm glad I'm gonna be a part of it.

    RATM are not "the best", but they are my main reason for going to Coachella again. They are just "the best" playing at this year's Coachella. I am more excited about going to see The Police and Tool at Bonnaroo, and would consider them both better then RATM.

    I think they're as far from crap as they are from being the best band ever.

    agreed. Too bad there's no "in-between" option.

    I would, but I feel like there are already too many threads/polls about RATM, and if I were to start a new one, I'd probably get just bashed alot from it.

    Love the band, love their live performances, can't say much for some of their fans. They are neither crap nor are they the best.

    I was talking to a random person at work today and I mentioned I was seeing Rage at coachella and she said "OMG my friend got his head kicked in bad at a Rage show".

    I couldn't make this shit up. Their fans have quite the reputation.

    Their cool, that's about it. Certainly not the best and certainly not crap, you should have put "they are okay" instead of "never heard of them"

    I think its obvious Rage are the best. No offence, but all the here to see just the indie bands, or techno/trance/DJ performers, really should stop whinning about Rage being on the bill. Rage headlined the first Coachella, along with Tool and Beck. And Coachella has always been an eclectic festival with lots of different bands and performers from lots of different genres. There are some of the bands I dont really like that are performing, I still respect them and may even go see them, just for the experience. So if you dont like Rage and mosh pits, dont go into the mosh pits. Or if you really are that against Rage performing, dont see them at all. Rage reuniting is truly and special event.

    72 people as of now say rage are the best, compared to 22 saying they are crap. If that ratio is indicitive of the ratio of diehard rage fans to other's, sunday is going to be weird.

    On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best and 0 being absolute crap, I'd rate Rage an 8.
