The original bass player for the Kinks has passed. There has been 15 or so members over the years. I think they can still get away with being called "the kinks." I'm not really familiar with Husker Du though.
EDIT* I doubt the Kinks will ever reunite. The two brothers hate each other.

I don't think the Davies' brothers really hate each other any more. It seems like their break-up is more just stubborn habit at this point. They even make generalized references of a potential reunion in interviews every now and then. Wouldn't surprise me at all if they reunite as The Kinks someday, but (of course) the likelyhood of it happening at Coachella is small.
No one from Husker Du is dead, and they don't hate each other, either. Bob Mould and the other main song-writer even took the stage together a few years ago and played some Husker Du songs at a benefit show (for Soul Asylum's bassist, who died of cancer). Their break-up was more about moving in different directions in their lives, and for Mould to get away from the drug and booze environment surrounding the band. Still, this one probably won't happen, but that's kind of the point of surprise reunions.
I think Edward Sharpe, Phoenix, Pretty Lights, Das Racist, Crystal Method, XX, Mau5, Atmosphere, Tyler, Cat Empire, Rebelution, Grizzly Bear, Panda Bear are some good guesses...Skrilly is gonna be there, if he's not i'll be (pleasantly) surprised- same with Aoki and the like for the ravey boppers' name recognition
Cudi, Matisyahu, Pepper would be really cool. Two Door Cinema Club and Tallest Man on Earth would be great returners
for whatever reason i cant figure out how to have the full poster in my thread post but w/e here's a new lineup poster for you all Coachella1 copy.jpg
Lil Wayne quit rapping, but u have Green Day booked so I'm sold
Follow me on Twitter at Klein25
Spoon Aug 8 Hollywood
Kasabian Oct 8 Wiltern
The Horrors Oct 14 Santa Ana
Stone Roses below Lana Del whatevz. Uh huh.
I guessssssss i'd be down
id take it... considering Sigur Ros would be on the Outdoor against Green Day..... Their performance last night on the VMAs was quite possibly the worst thing ive ever seen, and they should probably stop making music.
Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)
- PEARL JAM WHY YOU HATE COACHELLA? -
Yeah I'd be happy with that honestly regardless of how weird some of those placements are. I think taking Green Day out and putting MMJ in their spot would be more realistic though, or just about any of the other subheadliners
I hope coachella isn't anything like alot of these posters...
Bob has written quite a few bitter songs about Grant. He has hardly gotten over it.
I would love to see a reunion of all three of them, but I don't think I'll ever see them together again.
I shudder to think what kind of crowd Green Day would draw, but overall I'd be pretty pleased with that. Galactic is a good call.
I would love that fake but I doubt that we will get three fairly traditional rock headliners.
This Green Day thing just got a little more interesting
