It has come to my attention that I totally forgot to post my best of 2009, even after I promised I would. So, without further ado, everything you hopefully didn’t miss in ’09 (I have even embedded the albums and songs so you can at least click the button and listen. I am SPOON-FEEDING YOU GREATNESS):
Yesterday, bored at home, I started googling for Lollapalooza lineup rumors. It turned out that there were all sorts of whispers that Green Day would be making an appearance, GD being one of the two bands that will make the decision for me. (The other being Muse.) (That decision being yes.) Anyway, I was elated to discover this morning that, according to The Daily Swarm, this year’s big stage headliners will be Green Day, Lady Gaga, and the first US reunion show of Soundgarden. Excellent! I will get to see Lady Gaga without specifically paying for that, which is ideal, plus Green Day, who are always unbelievable and will be touring in support of Green Day Rock Band.
Rumored to be headlining the other stage? The Flaming Lips, Beastie Boys (to make up for last year, when they pulled out following Ad-Rock’s cancer diagnosis) and Arcade Fire. But again, these are just rumors.
