    Default System Of A Down for 2012.

    I could definitely see these guys headlining. They're reunited. Fan base is huge. They could attract a whole new audience to Coachella. Why not?

    They didn't even sell out the Forum or Irvine tho.

    And those were the first shows back.


    I'd be down tho.

    I don't think Paul T would ever book them as a headliner. That being said, I would definitely watch their set.

    I didn't go to LA, but Irvine only half the grass was filled. And I didn't see the Terrance but Loge was like 80% and Orchestra looked like 70%.

    I think they're just kind of an awkward band to figure out where to book at this point. Were there a lot of scalpers outside trying to sell last minute tickets? I was tempted to just head down there and try and pick up something cheap after seeing them in Vegas couple days before.

    I would be severely disappointed if these guys came anywhere close to headlining.

    I only saw one scalper but I got my tickets on ebay the week before 2 LOG tickets for $61. Those tickets are $59.95 each.

    I don't think these guys are headliner material. Not for a festival like Coachella at least.

    I would pass. These last few shows reminded me how much I can't stand the last 2 records.

    In Chula Vista, it definitely wasn't as packed on the lawn as I thought it'd be. But that's probably because I'm a cheapass and had to get lawn while everyone else bought orchestra and loge.

    That being said, SOAD are huge in Europe and are headlining the Download Festival this Saturday.
    I'm a huge SOAD fan and personally, I can see them doing the Muse thing and headlining before a big DJ act like Daft Punk for next year.

    Well regardless if they do the Muse thing or not, Muse was billed as the top headliner that day...SOAD will never be billed at the top of a day for Coachella.

    When it comes to Coachella they're just outcasts. They would have to really want to play the festival and accept sub/third line and a meager paycheck compared to what they are used to.
