I don't even know if Wu Tang would be on the second line, although I love them. They played in, what was it, Billings, MT? At the fairgrounds or something? That's usually not a good sign. That's where Nelly plays.
If anything, Wilco would have been the one they replaced Arcade Fire with.
Nooooo way, dude. Just no way to that. Both Death Cab and Modest Mouse played Sasquatch as subheadliners in the 2-3 years leading up to 2011. I'm sure wonk will punch this statement full of holes, but I'm pretty sure that Wilco is a headliner roughly on the same level as THE MIGHTY FUCKING WEEN.
And yeah, up to and including (arguably) Good News Modest Mouse had one of most impeccable discographies this side of R.E.M.
Your thing with Modest Mouse is weird. Obviously you have a thing where a band's shitty recent material colors the rest of their material brown for you, and I get that. But Modest Mouse has made two bad albums, that really aren't that bad, and aren't major departures from the style of the rest of their music. And they put on an absolutely incredible performance at Sasquatch. I would still consider them a really kick ass band. I bet if they make another album, it's going to be awesome. Like Wilco - they made Sky Blue Sky, and then they made a piece of shit - but during that piece of shit album, they were still an awesome live entity. Then their next album was really good. I don't think Modest Mouse has lost it like you think they've lost it, is what I'm saying.

Complete essay of a college applicant (I'm going to get fired and sued if he reads the message board, but unless it's Mase's little brother I think I'm safe):
"Football taught me a a lot about life. I gained so much knowledge. Football is a team game and also is life. You may get knocked down but you have to get up and keep Dr. Garbanzohting. There is ups and down that will let you either shape you or you shape it. As a captain I took charge gave leadership to my fellow teammates. I will never forget those memories I had with my team, my brothers."
My roomie's great uncle (or some shit) is Peadar Clancy. Google that shit. I'm assuming you won't be coming for a visit... :/
Damn. I'm just messing around though, all the Irish are badass and I wish I was a real Irish person instead of an American Irish person. The Irish voted down the amendment to the constitution of the EU that would have centralized the government under a president, because the Irish are like, fuck having a president, we fought too long for this. BADASSES. DUBLINERS, BITCH.
