    Not that my list is that much different than anyone else's but:

    5 Smart:
    Outkast: set the excitement level of the festival this year
    the Knife: Coachella is known for rare acts and they don't seem to be playing any other US festivals in 2014
    the Replacments: Coachella is known for reunion acts and they don't seem to be playing any other US festivals in 2014
    Motorhead: Is a much different booking than I've ever seen at Coachella
    Pet Shop Boys: Could be a lot of fun and will hopefully be up against Skrillex to close a night

    5 dumb:
    Girl Talk: just don't get the GV infatuation with guy, my biggest head-scratcher for 2014, horrible artist
    Skrillex: Just about any DJ other than Avicci would be a better choice to close the main
    Duck Sauce: I could think of countless more interesting acts to fill this slot
    Krewella: Geez, this is starting to look like a bad EDM year
    Foster the People: Yuck. Too high on the poster.

    5 Missed:
    Moderat: Would've been a great way to close a night
    Trentemoller: How does ultra get him and not Coachella?
    NIN (or Tool): I still have to believe there is some unknown reason for this non-booking
    Chemical Brothers DJ set: Doing a festival in Europe the same weekend but they could've done Coachella instead (or also if it's a dj set)
    Underworld: One of these years this has to happen

    fuck it any of these bands should've been placed ahead of Muse. It's a trend now. Every year we have to have at least one shit headliner (Muse, Phoenix, RHCP, Black Keys, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Jack Johnson, Bjork). Thank god for Outkast, NMH, Beck, Arcade Fire this year. That's enough to drag me to the polo fields.

    Smart

    1. Outkast-Although they are playing everywhere they never toured for one of the most critically acclaimed/popular albums ever and are back after a long absence.
    2. The Replacements- I've been waiting for this for a long, long time. Reunions like these are trademark Coachella.
    3. Motorhead- You don't know how many years Lemmy has in him and c'mon it's fucking Motorhead. Great booking.
    4. Queens of the Stoneage-It has been too long since QOTSA has played the desert and their new album is geat.
    5. Disclosure-Not a big fan and even though its a repeat they have had a huge year. Popular critically and commercially.

    (This was very difficult to come up with 5 names)

    Stupid
    1. Lana Del Rey- No talent and to give someone like her that billing (ahead of Motorhead are you fucking kidding me?) and I'll assume the money they had to pay her. Not worth it.
    2. Beady Eye-Yawn. Nobody cares, Noel is the one with the talent anyways.
    3. AFI- No business playing Coachella. This is a joke.
    4. Muse/Arcade Fire-Two recent repeat headliners on the same bill? One that's touring for an album that came out a year ago? Blah.
    5. Capital Cities/Empire of the Sun/Bastille/Foster the People etc- too many boring, radio friendly bands that sound extremely generic. Not that radio friendly is a bad thing, but I just think of these bands as radio bands that all kind of blend together.

    Five Misses
    1. NIN
    2. Jack White
    3. Arctic Monkeys
    4. Parquet Courts
    5. Mikal Cronin

    smart

    outkast - obviously, probably the biggest reunion of the year.
    warpaint - new album soon after their fairly successful debut 4 years ago.
    jaguwar ma - Great new band. will be good dancing in the sun, won't be their last coachella.
    goat - weird psych group who i think will get big one day, similar trajectory as tame impala.
    lorde - smart for another reason.. face it, she'll draw a huge crowd.

    dumb

    muse - seems like they play every major fest for the last 5 years. no worth their price tag.
    skrillex - again, not worth his price tag. will be irrelevant in 2 years.
    fatboy slim - seems like a strange pick for coachella 2014
    sleigh bells - maybe i'm biased but i think this noise crap will be short lived.

    missed

    the national
    trente moller
    the hold steady - would really love to see these guys again, it's been a long time.
    suuns - released a great album in 2013. would have fit nicely.
    azealia banks - new album coming in 2014.

    Ok, fuck it, I'll bite.

    Smart

    Outkast - Obvious

    The Knife - I am honestly not that big of a fan, but I have so many friends on and off these boards who are overly excited for this. They have been requested for years and were considered to be in the "will never play Coachella" category (kind of like Outkast; Neutral Milk Hotel).

    Motorhead - The out of left-field, nostalgic "metal" act. Never saw this coming. One of the best names on the lineup.

    The Replacements - This type of booking is what keeps the older folks coming back (TomAZ).

    Neutral Milk Hotel - See The Knife

    Dumb

    Martin Garrix - No one cares about this guy and his presence on the lineup is unnecessary. Why he is billed so high is baffling.

    Dillon Francis - I don't care if he just played; that's not my problem. It's that his sound blends in with a lot of other "DJ's" that are already on the lineup and mirrors the Sahara Tent's generic bookings since 2010 / 2011. Not only is it a repeat, it's an uninspired repeat.

    Girl Talk - It doesn't make sense to repeatedly book this guy. Not that Girl Talk doesn't attract a crowd -- his sets have been known to be "fun" at times -- but in an era where Goldenvoice is selling out two weekends in the matter of hours after they go on sale (that doesn't even mention the pre-sale where weekend one passes nearly disappeared despite there being no lineup or real solid rumors at the time), it seems like booking Girl Talk is lazy. They could have replaced him with virtually anything (except Iglu and Hartly) and it would make the lineup stronger.

    Calvin Harris - See Girl Talk

    Beady Eye - Because everything Oasis-related is drivel and no one in this part of the United States gives a flying fuck about the Gallaghers.

    Missed -
