The Lollapalooza 2010 Lineup Makes Traveling To Chicago Debatable

This 2010 lineup is Lollapalooza On Steroids. It’s really about as great a lineup of bands that you could get these days and it’s making me actually think about taking a Chicago vacation come August. For starters, who wouldn’t want to see a reunited Soundgarden break out their rusty cage? Even The Strokes are getting together for the show. It’s unfortunate that the show will be tainted by Green Day and Lady Gaga. I would have to find something else to listen to while they perform…maybe some crying babies or sickly cats.

Here’s the full kickass lineup, with my perceived highlights in italics:

    Dude, this is an EPIC lineup, though I agree about Lady Gaga. I only know about, say, four groups on here, but one of them — Spoon — is an all-time favorite!

    The line-up is decent. The Black Keys, The Strokes, and Deer Tick are amazing.
