    Jack Johnson was Jack Johnson, but Bjork was not Bjork.

    Furthermore, MIA sucked after Paper Planes. She thought the shotgun sound would make a good bass drum. I forget if she headlined, but I had been looking forward to the performance.

    Which year are you referring to? She is a two-time headliner and she killed both. I call b.s.

    I'm predicting a landslide. And Bjork is in (a distant) 3rd place, so it's not such a ridiculous notion.

    That Bjork and Portishead are options when The Killers aren't makes me want to shoot you. Or urge you to try out for a Darwin Award. Whichever would end you quickest.

    I cannot believe Jack Johnson gets picked over Kings of Leon.... at least Jack Johnson used to have damn good tunes that took over the whole planet for a good while.

    Rage Against the Machine for bringing the most teenage angst to Coachella ever. They did a great set and as a band they are awesome, they just brought along every single douche in the world with them, people felt the need to stay up late and scream, resulting in helicopters and riot geared cops surrounding the campgrounds..
    PREDICTING SAME WITH KANYE (78% probability) cuz bitches love Kanye. It's going to get extremely hyphy-crunk-ghetto (XHCG)

    I'd take that aggro Rage crowd again over what came last year.

    Bjork was not great when she headlined last, so I think she deserves to be on the poll. RHCP as well. Oh yeah, and Rage SUCKED at Coachella their last time around (Killed it in '99, tho). It was all hype, but they did not deliver. Sorry.

    Jack Johnson was by far the worst, even if it is chill surfer music to fall asleep to, it's not Coachella. There is a reason he's way out in front in this poll.
