Fightstar - well f*** me sideways a bonefide boyband. This is a seriously lame line-up. Previous years have at least provided some decent acts on the smaller stages.

No love for Black Dahlia Murder? One of the heaviest on the damn bill. The Offspring/Lost Prophets headlining? Why?? Damn Brits should rethink those Headliner slots...
