If we're still thinking Foo level headliners here, there are a few other unformentioned possibilities I wouldn't completely rule out:
Incubus - new album in the works, but no current plans of a tour. A Perfect Circle - Just played reunion shows in the US last year and said they would be back to tour this year. Alice In Chains - Not likely, they just finished a headlining trek. More likely than Green Day though. John Butler Trio - Just to shut any DMB style lovers up Silverchair - Again, not likely, but the festival could use a shocker like this. Bush - I wouldn't support it, but they have a comeback album in the making and played a SoCal festival late last year. Smashing Pumpkins - I've got nothing, but they are still actively making music, aren't they?
I would be going to party at the campground early if any of these bands headline.
Shit... I can't modify the above post anymore on my phone.
Some "Oh God No!" possibilities:
Linkin Park - Insane to even remotely think of, I know. More unlikely than even Green Day. That being said, their new shit is currently on heavy rotation at all local alt-rock stations. One known station to house many of Sasquatch's Bands, 107.7 The End comes to mind.
Snow Patrol - please, no.
Personally, there are some artists from my first post I would put in here as well, but these are all just random guesses to add to the ever increasing pot of possible headliners.
I attended those shows. Many of you have only experienced a Sasquatch campground. A Phish campground is pretty crazy. Picture 18,000 people trying to sell their crafts to the 400 people who brought cash.
I had a feeling there would be some heads turning about my mentioning of Silverchair. Lol. They should have stopped making music in '99. Still they somehow manage to sell out shows when they seldomly come.
...and I agree "coffee and cigarettes" is a terrible song. Invented isn't half bad for an album though.
Why are you even TALKING about Linkin Park being at sasquatch? That'd be like having talking about Nickelback possibly being at sasquatch.
Hardly. Linkin Park have made two albums worth of attempts to try and be considered alternative rock and are on altrock radio... And the even shittier band, Nickelback... Sadly people have created more ties between them and confirmed headliners, The Foo Fighters, than with Linkin Park. Bottom line. Foo Fighters=great. Linkin Park=Not so great. Nickelback=The worst band in the world.
If we're still thinking Foo (or lesser than) level headliners here, there are a few other unformentioned possibilities I wouldn't completely rule out:
Some "Oh God No!" possibilities.
I thought you said you were not a troll?
Zero chance any of those headline. I saw Incubus at the Gorge, but unfortunately forgot my pillow. Having seen Alice in Chains recently, I can honestly say it was the worst show I've ever seen.
With all do respect.
First off, I am thrilled you declined half that list.
The other half.. Flight Of The Conchords have headlined a Monday before? And why not A Perfect Circle? They would easily draw in the money these corporate festivals seek. Maybe Incubus is boring live now, but I haven't seen them live since 2002 and they were amazing then. Judging from that show, they wouldn't have required a pillow any more than Radiohead would. LOADS of slow songs there. I can see your point with AIC. You either love them or hate them now. But atleast its a better idea than the idiot who suggested Sublime.
gtfo troll. i havent paid any attention to you and i even tried helping you in another thread but i'm starting to see everyone elses point.
So happy I could share my fresh ideas with some civil and rational adults on here. Naysayers, where's your lists? Think you can do better? I've seen the same bands listed throughout this entire thread. They aren't bad bands by any means, but it would be nice for the sake of entertaining conversation, if you could spice the guess list up a bit.
Nickelback=the closest you can come to being gay without actually blowing another dude.
Walk me through this one here Hancho, please. I take it you're not giving Nickleback high praise here, as in Nickleback=AWFUL. I really hope dragging an entire minority down in the mud and looking unabashedly homophobic at the expense of some "lame dude joke" was worth it. Cool, COOL 27 YEAR OLD! Before I'm tempted to really throw it down here perhaps I will take a second to offer you some needed enlightenment
By calling something you feel is stupid, dumb, lame or whatever "gay", you are porpoisely relating the word "gay" to absolutely negative connotations. Hence, Gay=Stupid,lame,dumb... Unfortunately our sensitivity and understanding of minorities can be so dismal that this sentiment often goes unchecked and brutally dismissed as "oh it's just a word"(of course said the dumb ignorant dude who is not gay nor has never been teased, bullied, humiliated or assaulted for being nothing other than himself) These continued sentiments reinforce shame and negativity to the word gay. They also victimize and demean gay people, like it or not it is a form of homophobia. So please, don't get defensive with me (and make me further explain the necessity of why insecure young males feel the need to continually participate in this behavior), just ask yourself "Is this something I want to be a part of?". I hope your answers "No" my man.
