Are people actually saying that?

I thought the discussion was more about how significant an act they are. Can't imagine anyone seriously thinking they'd headline the Pyramid next year.

Yeah i'd not seen any suggestion of this. MCR won't headline, think it was just being debated if they were relevant at any point.

I think MCR go down as one of those bands that was big for a small period, maybe like 2-3 years, but not long enough to have much lasting significance. But I think it's undeniable The Black Parade was really big at the time and crossed into mainstream as well as making many people that had turned their noses up at them start to take note.

Just had to google MCR. And I'm not officially a boomer, more a gen xer I think.

I'm 47 and I got called boomer by my 16 year old son the other day, suddenly it's become shorthand for anyone over 40 it seems.

I suppose I'm gen x as well, but I don't know anyone in my age group who have ever considered themselves that. I always picture an american teen in a plaid shirt when I hear the term.

Well I just clicked on this thread entitled '2020 Headliners' and saw the last few pages filled with MCR chat and people discussing the extent of their popularity, so it certainly seemed so. They could headline the other stage I guess.

Yeah, these things have a tendency to go off on a bit of a tangent :D

I'm talking generally here not aiming at anyone here, but people are getting annoyed at being called a boomer when they've referred to anything under 30 as a millennial and hurled shit at them for years.

I digress...

Manchester could 100% headline the pyramid

Based on Emily's info that the headliner has never played the festival then Jason Derulo is definitely a shoe in now.

Ah we've missed you pal.

ELO have a new album out. Has a band or act ever played the legend slot then featured elsewhere in future festivals?

Saw them in Birmingham last year and they were outrageously good. Their sound engineer is a genius. The levels on their instrumentals and tightness was just superb.

People are talking about Foals and The 1975 headlining but you take issue with Pearl Jam?! 

Now I have no beef with Pearl Jam, and I neither like Foals or 1975, but there's far more reason for both of them to headline than Pearl Jam in 2019. The 1975 are absolutely huge worldwide and you could argue are pretty much the future of (pop) rock right now. Glasto taking a punt on them headlining as their way of putting the spotlight on the current leaders and future of Biritish pop rock is more likely than an American alt rock band who were primarily huge in the 90's but aren't of huge interest to most people outside of their core fan base nowadays. I can understand old rock acts being rumoured previously for headlining that hold more of a legendary status like Elton, Fleetwood Mac, Paul McCartney. I just don't think Pearl Jam are quite that big anymore........Other Stage headliner maybe?

Of course I might be wrong, it's just my opinion, there are plenty here who'd feel differently :)

Gen X is basically The Breakfast Club generation. 

Everyone wanted to be John Bender.

Smoke up Johnny!

And that lead to Grunge and the Seattle sound. 

And that's why most of us are depressed and or anxious...Think Cobain and Chris Cornell.

This reminds me of one of the more bizarre and very unfortunate music deaths...
