I like this, I know we can vote for up to 3, but I went with 1, just WSP. If they are the jam headliner, I'm okay with that. I would rather have Furthur, but that's fine. Some of the others I wouldn't mind, but I just don't want them as Headliners.
Green Day because they were my favorite band in college and I have never seen them live. I still enjoy their music but I would never pay to see them on their own. I saw that movie Bullet in a Bible where they played for thousands of people in the UK and I think they would make a great headliner. I would be very excited to see them at Bonnaroo.
KISS because they were my brother's favorite band when we where in high school and I grew to love them. I was going to see them at the MN state fair last year but decided that I couldn't afford it. I don't think I would want them as a headliner but it would be cool to see them at Roo. A late night set on Which might be neat.
Finally, I choose The Eagles because my mom's favorite song is Desperado. She would be really excited about seeing The Eagles. I don't mind their music but they can be kind of boring. I think I would still enjoy them though.
The only people on the list that I would be disappointed with are Lady Gaga and Kings of Leon. I took a nap during KOL's set last year. Can't stand Lady Gaga and I don't understand why she is popular. Maybe if I dress up like a clown and dance around pretending to sing, I can be famous too.
I hope I don't have to lower my expectations THIS much.
But, if I absolutely had to choose...
Friday: KISS Saturday: The Eagles Sunday: Widespread Panic
And maybe round it out with a late-night by Gaga. Because I'm a masochist like that.
Eminem was actually fantastic when I saw him... 10 years ago. His music has changed a lot since then, and I don't like anything he's done since the 8 Mile soundtrack (and even on that he only did a couple songs). At this point in his career, I have absolutely zero desire to see him live. "I'm Not Afraid" is just cheesy, generic Top 40 bullhonkey.

I went with Van Halen, The Eagles, and KISS. You can see my background in Classic Rock. I would have said Green Day over KISS, but I saw them a while back and wasn't particularly impressed, and I bet KISS would at least be a spectacle.

I saw the Eagles at Austin City Limits over the Summer, and I personally thought that they blew. Personally, I find Hotel California to be the most annoying song of all time. I mean, c'mon, it's the same quacking chords progression being played over and over and over again.
I picked Gaga- supposed to be a good stage show, I'd check it out for the spectacle Green Day- loved them in middle school. Dookie is nostalgic for me. If they just played longview or like 2 other songs off that album I'd be happy Eminem- loved him in highschool. I'd actually really like to see him still
I'd also take WSP for that matter. TBH I like some of these guys better than the bigger ones being speculated. All the others in this poll would be nap times for me though.
