    While it's awesome they're back (I thought they were suing each other), you should know that prior to that, they had pretty much became a perform at 3pm band on the main stage...hopefully Coachella gives them a better slot than that.

    They should totally be closing the outdoor or at least the Mojave. But, you may be right with that 3pm bullshit. They could really play anywhere at anytime and fucking bring it. I saw them in 94 on the "add it up" tour and it was freakin amazing (I still have the tour shirt). I remember some songs like "black girls" and "gimme the car" were incredible live.

    Probably my #1 act for the weekend. I cannot believe they are actually on the line up. So excited for this.

    HOW ARE THEY ON THE 4TH LINE THOUGH!? They should easily be a 2nd line band.

    Same. They'd probably play a couple shows in our state.

    My friends thought I was nuts, but I said all year that I'd hoped they'd be there. I'd keep checking their site every now and again and nothing was happening over there. I flipped out when I saw them! God, I hope they play at night. My number one pick for the weekend. I like, American music best.

    Bas much as I'd like this I'm afraid they'll be on the main stage under the blistering sun.

    Saw them in '94 too at the 2nd annual KROQ weenie roast. Also still have my shirt from that show. They were great.

    Long time coming for these guys! Legends! First two albums classic! Nothing like them before or after. Should get way more respect for stripping rock-n-roll down to the bare essentials. Very few first albums have held up as well as theirs has. Every single track is amazing - and country death song is fucking perfect. One of my most unexpected must-sees.

    I couldn't believe when I saw them booked so low! I had to double check to make sure it was actually them. They've been on my wishlist forever...being 23 I honestly never thought I'd get to see them live!
