    The worst time of the year, hearing kids begging and crying for tickets. I wish they would just put all the bands in a giant stadium again so everyone could go but I know that would defeat the purpose of making kids suffer for ratings.

    Rise Against is like the resident KROQ house band. If KROQ has a show, they play. It could be a KROQ Lillith Fair and they would still play.

    They play rock, paper, scissors to determine which of them play.

    I didnt know KROQ was going to put 3 headliners in one night for night 1 now. They must have a lot of money to throw around again. Jack White for night 1.

    Tegan and Sara would make sense being that they are doing the KJEE winter show here with Metric at the Arlington.

    I actually think putting LP below Soundgarden is right. LP has a huge following, they sell out arenas all over the world.

    However, LP is complete garbage. I keep waiting for them to fade into obscurity but it never happens.

    So much contradiction I don't even know where to begin...
    Linkin Park will always be billed higher than Soundgarden. I mean as much as I like SG they are no where close to LP's popularity among high schoolers, Los Angeles, and the world

    Soundgarden was big like LP at one point, but not so much anymore. I don't listen to LP, but I know that they have more commercial success at this point than Soundgarden does.

    I get why Linkin is billed above SG, it's just kinda sad? And I know more LP songs than SG.

    A friend of mine is part of the KROQ "Street Team" and claims that they sent him fliers for the event. Take it for what it's worth but what he said seems like it could be pretty accurate.

    Night 1
    Linkin Park
    Rise Against
    Bush
    Garbage
    Slightly Stoopid
    Awolnation
    Walk the Moon
    The Gaslight Anthem
    Two Door Cinema Club
    Youngblood Hawke

    Night 2
    The Killers
    Jack White
    Fun
    M83
    Passion Pit
    Of Monsters and Men
    Grouplove
    The Lumineers
    Alex Clare
    Imagine Dragons

    I'll probably find myself here mostly for garbage, two door, jack white, m83, of monsters and men, and the lumineers.

    This looks about right. Although the bush guess is probably a mistake
