    As bad as fun. is or will/would be, JJ still takes the cake. Never felt better about leaving the Polo grounds early as I did 5 years ago.

    Caught about half of Black Lips (Fire!) and Fatboy Slim (Who wasn't great that year, btw), walked to get a bottle of water on the way out and JJ's still whining into the mic - we tipped our invisible caps at the poor rich fellow and made our way to the parking lot with 55% of the rest of everyone on the planet.

    At least the Killers had fireworks, for the love of God.

    So true, but you have to admit, when "This is Music" kicked off the set, your goosebumps grew goosebumps. That and "Life's an Ocean" were perfect.

    They're not even the worst headliner if the only year that ever existed was this year.

    This should be the clear winner. The whole "why didn't you just go to another stage?" argument does not apply. Those motherfuckers owe us some Block Rockin Beats.

    Ugh, I forgot about that. The Chemical Brothers should have been in Sahara anyway. Main stage kind of sucked the life out of that performance IMO.

    If you're a Chemical Brothers fan the hate is completely warranted. They stole 30 minutes of performance time from one of my favorite artists and the fact that their first two albums don't suck as much as the rest doesn't change that fact. That's more offensive to me than Jack Johnson's worst song.

    Saw Verve do the sublime 'Already There' off A Storm in Heaven a few days before in Vegas. But why wasn't 'She's a Superstar' ever in the set? Such a filthy, desert opening guitar riff.

    I wanted "Gravity Grave", but it just wasn't in the cards. Those heartbreaking, miserable cards.

    Incorrect. The correct answer is that they suck just as much, but since Jack is just one man and KOL is like four, KOL sucks 4X more. It's science, bitch.

    Kings of Leon are as shitty at being people as they are at making music, so there's also that.

    Jack Johnson, by far. There is no other performer who can suck the life out of the festival more than Jack Johnson.
