i hope not msbands, but the more i think about it the more i think it's going to happen. especially with no doubt's tour schedule release being delayed with no explanation. go on their site's message board, they're waiting for it to drop any time.
if for some reason no doubt headlines, no worries, i'll just go chill at the dance tent or another stage. it's pretty much 99% certain that the "reunion band" rumored is jane's addiction, so hopefully we don't have to worry about no doubt taking a headlining spot.
If you step into 1996, you will also find every Sasquatch headliner since 2005.
That's certainly a valid point, but I think there's something you're not considering: Yes, REM and The Cure and the Flaming Lips existed in the 1990's, but they all started in the 80's and have continued to put out records over the past twenty years. They are consistently GOOD musicians, and they manage to stay relevant -- ESPECIALLY the Lips.
On the other hand, Jane's Addiction's sound is SOLIDLY based in the 90's. It could not have existed in the 80's, nor in this decade. NIN is so firmly a part of the goth industrial whatfuckingever scene of 90's Hot Topic that I am honestly mystified that they have any new fans in 2009. As far as I'm concerned, Sasquatch might as well have booked Marilyn Manson and Limp Bizkit.
Except Jane's Addiction put out two albums in the 80's, which including two of their biggest hits, the Mountain Song, and Jane Says. They put out two albums in the 90s, the first was in 1990, an album mostly written and recorded in 1989, the second in 1997, a rarities complilation including songs from the 80s, or live versions of songs performed in 1990. Their last album was a half reunion which came out in 2003.
It is easier to argue that they did absolutely nothing in the 90s over their sound is SOLIDLY based in the 90s.
As for existing this decade, most full reunion bands have not put out much lately, that is the definition of reunion. With Satellite Party and the Red Hot Chili Peckers, it is enough to say they have remained somewhat relevant.
As for Marilyn Manson, fuck yeah, that would be sick.
Even though I'm sure it's not going to happen, I'm still going to keep hoping that Pavement is going to be the "legendary band with all original members", but, unfortunately it will probably be Jane's Addiction.
