let's stop comparing band dick sizes and just agree that the White Stripes could headline this festival.

next topic....

they ARE. i've been trying to tell you ignorant assholes the lineup isnt going to be immediately broken up into three days. its going to be like 08 eventually was, with a bonnaroo block style. they have such a stacked lineup this year that it would be kinda hard to separate all the headliners from subs. it's going to be INSANE. gay-z will still be one of the headliners though.

01-18-2010, 10:33 PM
come on, it's obvious anyone who came up last decade isn't good enough to be a headliner. headliners should be bands that have been around since we were kids.

either way, you're wrong.

I have yet to hear another good name.

I'm talking as an icon. I'm not talking about bands even. I'm talking about a rock star, popularity, critical success, all that stuff. He's a figure. Thom Yorke may be the guy in Europe but here it's Jack White. I can't even think of another contender besides Dave Grohl.

Everyone has those groups that a good portion of the public likes, but they personally find mediocre at best.

The White Stripes are that group for me.

I'm not saying anything bad about them, and I actually think they're good live. However, I haven't listened to one of their records and liked it since 2001/2002.

The guy from 98.7 who posted about the White Stripes.

I called him out on leaking info from a fake poster, saying he's a fucking DJ on a big station in LA and should check his facts before making claims. And he responded "I do have the facts. You will see tomorrow."

Whether you like Jack White and his various bands or not, he is an idol and he has made a huge impact on music. Jack White is almost already legendary, in 10 years he will be considered a god.

Vedder is not nearly as versatile as Jack White has shown himself to be. Even though all of his incarnations are based in the blues, each band has a very distinctive sound.

Vedder doesn't have the complete respect of legendary musicians like Loretta Lynn, Dylan and the Stones, who all seek out collaborations with him, or at least have agreed to them in the past.

Jack White is also an amazing businessman who is producing his own music through his own label, something Eddie Vedder was not able or willing to do, even with all of his demonizing of Ticketmaster/big labels and so forth.

Lastly, since Jack White bases his music in the blues, a genre that goes back a very long way in American history, he's got more longevity and more of a chance to connect the past to the future of music. Heavy....

Jack White is also an amazing businessman who is producing his own music through his own label, something Eddie Vedder was not able or willing to do, even with all of his demonizing of Ticketmaster/big labels and so forth.

Lastly, since Jack White bases his music in the blues, a genre that goes back a very long way in American history, he's got more longevity and more of a chance to connect the past to the future of music. Heavy....

94-00, i think it's vedder. I dont need to argue, but I mean, the shitty modern rock genre of the late 90s early 2000s (even some now) was a bunch of guys trying to imitate Vedder's voice. Unfortunately they made terrible music, but PJ didnt (IMHO). PJ is one of the most popular bands in the world - have crazy longevity - they are still relevant - and Vedder is widely considered one of the most charismatic lead singers of his generation. Also, they boycotted ticketmaster and tried to help out the little guy. I think he's earned some respect.

Yes, he's excellent with them, but Paige, especially in Zeppelin's The Song Remains the Same, is in a league of his own. People need to understand that. Watch that Zep film people.

The funny thing about that is that the Zep members didn't feel it was their best performance. It was the end of a tour, and they had to wear the same outfits at MSG for 2-3 performances, so they could make it look like one concert (not to mention that it took nearly three years for them to release it).

I've seen other performances, particularly earlier ones, that were even better. Jimmy was amazing, and I'm glad that he's still got it.

According to a DJ at 98.7, yes. But who knows if that means anything.

I once met a girl my own age in a social setting a few years back that did not know who Kurt Cobain was, but she certainly knew who a lot of shitty artists were.

Point is, maybe name recognition is not that much of an indicator, either way.

Do you guys ever really encounter anyone who knows the name of a single member of Kings of Leon? I never have, but they sure love to scream "I think I'm going to use somebody."

Radiohead - 30 Million Records

White Stripes - 12 Million Records

Radiohead have been at it a lot longer than The White Stripes, and they started making music when the norm was to purchase the music that you wanted and not steal it from the internet en masse.

I do think that if you walk up to the average American, they're more likely to recognize the name Jack White than the name Thom Yorke. That's really the only part of this argument I have an opinion about.

I would say mid to late 90's.. that's a toughy

rock star stats...

The Prodigy (as a full band) who didn't own Fat of the Land?

Eminem was insaney huge and genre breaking

i dunnos, Vedder and Billy seemed too attached to their respective bands and limitations

nation, how many of those Radiohead numbers are from England? Not that it's particularly relevant to the discussion.

Ah, no argument, just a fun little side discussion while we wait for Tuesday to happen. Eminem is last decade's biggest rock star, that's all. Now here's this:

Radiohead were "relevant" in the 90s AND in the 00s. Case Closed.

Edit: oh, and they will continue to be "relevant" into the next decade and beyond most likely.

Radiohead is a bigger band than The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather all put together.

But Jack White is a bigger name than Thom Yorke.

Can we all agree on this?

Indeed!

Yes, Dead Weather, MGMT, phoenix, Sleepy Sun and the band by Jack White - whatever the name is - are playing I have heard.

Because after things are confirmed, they're not longer "rumors/gossip/wishlist", they're "lineup".

Yes, and those that don't agree should check back in about 10 years and it will just be more of the same except Jack might be a producer and nothing more by then .... cr****

I didn't own it, but my first albums were on Christmas when I was 12, Third Eye Blind's debut and barenakedladies' Stunt. I wasn't into techno, but I think I had heard Smack My Bitch Up.

i still argue that more people know, respect and support thom yorke than jack white in america.

ok computer changed peoples lives and made them go bonkers like no other band has since sgt. peppers. white stripes/jack hasn't done that at all in my opinion. not one particular moment has defined jack white as an icon.

I could see Radiohead's longevity giving them more American mainstream popularity by 2015, or even earlier. It sucks that they're still just thought of as that band all the indie kids love.

Pink Floyd decades later is still known as the group that all the stoner kids love. Same shit is same unfortunately.
