    1. Dre, Snoop and guests (way ahead of #2)
    2. Arctic Monkeys (wasnt a big fan of, until we saw their set)
    3. Sebastian Ingrosso (made fun of shm before the set and ended up "making noise" followed by "fuck, he got me!")
    4. Justice
    5. Childish Gambino (never heard of him before, was awesome)

    Honorable mentions: Radiohead (well, because theyre Radiohead), The Hives (sat down to relax, ended up enjoying Pelle Almqvist's attitude), Santigold (the lady enjoyed her), the guy who started the clapping chant on the way back to camp on sunday night (around 2000 people were chanting at one time "if youre happy and you know it"), showers for having short lines every time I was there, and Coachella for being an unforgettable event.
    . . . . . . .
    When in doubt, pinkie out!

    1. Refused (I will never forget the crowd's reaction to the 'CAN I SCREAM?!?!?!' in 'New Noise')
    2. Pulp (Jarvis does the whole frontman thing correctly)
    3. Godspeed You! Black Emperor (Mesmerizing, no sound bleed from where I was standing)
    4. Le Butcherettes (Had never heard anything by them, left a fan)
    5. Azealea Banks (Killed it in 35 minutes)

    HMs:
    Jeff Mangum (his voice and guitars sounded clear and strong)
    Death Grips (crazy energy in the tent)
    The Buzzcocks (just a really good crowd-pleasing set, was happy to see a mosh pit and crowd surfers for these guys)
    Dre and Snoop (do you like singing along with several thousand people to some rap songs?)
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    3. Dre + Snoop (have to watch if you grew up in SoCal)
    4. araabMUZIK (just compelling to hear music done that way)
    5. St. Vincent (played the songs a bit slower live, made them feel a lot heavier)

    Updated leaderboard:

    1. Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg (66 1/2)
    2. Radiohead (47)
    3. Pulp (32.5)
    4. Jeff Mangum (26)
    5. Refused (25 1/2)
    6. Bon Iver (17)
    7. Modeselektor (15)

    13. Godspeed You! Black Emperor (10 1/2)
    14. The Rapture (10)
    15. (tie) Azealia Banks, DJ Shadow, Gotye (9)

    Methodology: Each of the top five get a whole point, except in cases of a tie, in which case 1/2 points issued for up to three entries, more than 3 dismisses bottom spot. In cases of unordered lists with more than 8, the final spot is disregarded.
