Cool! So many bands I like are coming to this festival, including The Offspring, AFI, Rise Against, Stone Temple Pilots, The Cure, Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand, Death Cab for Cutie and Paramore. I don't actually like Metallica very much, and I've never heard of Hollywood Undead. I've heard of some songs by Slightly Stoopid and Vampire Weekend, but don't own their music, so I can't comment on whether they're both my favorite.

Isn't Metallica actually playing? This article says they are, but I just went on KROQ's official website and Metallica isn't even mentioned. I'm surprised about that.

Pac-man sign not working, LOL!

I was trying to say that the Offspring, Rise Against, even
gA.yF.I. is better than the current Metallica.

Doesnt sound like a very heavy line-up to me. No offense to any people who might like those bands, but where the hell does Metallica fit in that bill anyway? Its like my 13 year old neices favorite bands, with special guest. She'll probably ask me and the wife to take her to the show....bleh.

I love KROQ, and will definitely watch some of the bands like when they perform on the internet. Instead of going to the show, KROQ's website broadcasts Weenie Roast and Acoustic Christmas concerts.
