    Default Top 5 bands you never thought you'd see that you got to see at Coachella

    Not necessarily the best (although there's gotta be some overlap), but what are the bands you never would have seen if it weren't for Coachella?

    1.Throbbing Gristle
    2.Bauhaus
    3.The Evens
    4.Wolf Eyes
    5.The Jesus and Mary Chain

    Bonus points for Paul McCartney and Roger Waters, who I wouldn't have paid exorbitants amounts to see on their own, but who were totally worth it.

    Closest ever thing to a Sly & Family Stone reunion since 1971/2. 4 of the 7 members including Sly, doesn't matter if it was godawful I had to see all of it.

    Prince
    Paul McCartney
    Robyn
    Gorillaz (agreeing with Lynn163 about what amounts to the closest one will ever get to a Clash reunion)
    John Waters (because that was out of the blue, but totally worth it)
    Tony Wilson (giving the best introduction anyone could ever hope to get, which is unfortunate, because it was to a sloppy Happy Mondays set)
    Faith No More
    Duran Duran

    Jack White
    and so many acts I'd never heard of that ended up being amazing (and I became a fan of a band I'd never listened to)
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!
