    Based on when I saw them, I think Passion Pit's and their lead singer's meh live rep is well deserved, but in his defense, the guy does write some fantastic songs.

    I don't think I've heard a song that better captures the angst of America's disintegrating upper middle class better than Talk A Walk. Probably the best single song representation of this moment in American history 2012 produced.

    For my money, I gravitate towards repeat rock acts that time and the quality of their recorded output since has proven don't really merit extended attention...most significantly Airborne Toxic Event, Stars, and The Gaslight Anthem.

    Portugal The Man could also go on this list, except they are a much more impressive live band.

    I hate the point of this thread, naming bands you don't like and saying they have no right to be there, when someone else is just as happy to have them and probablly don't want to see something you love. It's pointless, but having seen this band recently open for someone else..... I really do not get why they are on the lineup. The lead singer alone..... ugh.

    like most here, not fond of skrillex but do enjoy boys noize. liked their first two singles but not really sure what to expect for a hour set. (hopefully youtube broadcasts their set live from ultra for a better indication)

    A couple other bands i will be nowhere near....Vampire Weekend, Modestep, Infected Mushroom, 2Chainz, and 3BallMTY. Horrible!
    I agree with this.. except I love Social Distortion.


    So here's a thing that will get me ridiculed, but so be it. I love the story of Rodriguez and I've done some exploration since the lineup was announced. And as cool a story as it is.. he's really not very good. Well mainly, his music is OK, but man his lyrics can be dumb as fuck. And if you're gonna do folk music, you sort of live and die with the lyrics. I'll probably go to his set anyway, barring conflicts, but I am expecting it to suck.

    social D and dropkick are certainly outcasts on this lineup. but i wouldnt say either are bad, and they have pretty solid followings.

    the XX, i just dont fucking get, no matter how hard i try.

    and its been said a million times, and i went through the dedicated thread, but i still could give two shits about the stone roses.

    *Social D is terrible, but I'm hopeful that they're good live (I heard a live Mike Ness album and it sounded way better than SD, but his between-song raps were retarded and embarrassing).

    *Dropkick Murphys suck (on their studio stuff) compared to the Pogues, who they've stolen their whole shtick from. But I expect them to be very good live.

    *Sigur Ros seems to get nothing but love, but has to be the most overrated on the list. Generic New Age crap; GV might as well have hired Yanni or Zamfir. Actually, Zamfir would be kinda cool.

    *Phoenix is just an abortion. If they were just on list, I wouldn't have even noticed them. But headlining? Jesus.

    *RHCP. It's not that they're bad -- the have a LOT of great stuff -- but they're famous for putting on a shitty live show. Kiedis just can't deliver live, and they've lost their good guitar player. Pointless.

    Fortunately, there are more than enough good -- even great -- bands to make up for these.

    A buddy of mine saw them open for The Wombats, and said they were the most awful band he's ever seen. He's never one for hyperbole. Also made a point to talk about how annoying the frontman was.

    Have you seen Searching for Sugarman? I too don't know what to expect, but this is one of those rare acts Coachella pulls that might be worth seeing just to say you have.

    Social Distortion is a Southern California institution! I was very surprised to see them on the line up, but it will be great to see them on the Polo Fields. If you like Ness live, you should like Social Distortion live...Mike Ness is Social Distortion.

    Biffy Clyro seems pretty terrible, from the thirty seconds of their video I watched. Generic butt rock with a British accent. Also pretty poor band name choice.

    So... can you show us some examples of how Sigur Ros is "generic?" As far I have ever heard, there is no other band on this earth that sounds like Sigur Ros. Sure, maybe some artists now emulate the band, but that is not the same thing. To claim a band is generic, you are saying that said band took the cues and formulas and bands that came before them, and used them for themselves without really changing anything. That is a pretty crude definition of "generic," but for the purpose of this exercise, lets roll with it. Now, show me how Sigur Ros is generic. Just to me sure you understand me here, in order to show this you must find artists that came from before Sigur Ros that sound exactly like the band and prove that Sigur Ros used said artist's formula/ structure for making songs.

    I mean, maybe you just don't like funk. If you go to one of his (free) Monday night weeklies at Carbon and don't like any of the records he plays, then...fair enough. But that's just a taste thing. Dude is like a walking funk/boogie/electrodisco encyclopedia.

    Do you just not like hardcore? Did you listen to them on any of the records they made far before anyone knew who the fuck Odd Future were? Do you think mosh pits are bad and people should stand still and not do fun things?
