This will be fun, one of those bands I wouldn't go out my way to see but love to see at a festival.

They are brilliant - if any band typifies how you should play at a festival, it's this one

Yes, not "metal" but a lot of metal bands are really into them.

I'm chuffed to pieces

They have been pretty terrible for a few years now but I'd like to see them play the old classics.

YES YES YES!

Band I'm most excited about seeing so far! Wanted to see them for ages and never got the chance too, and even though their last few releases have been a tad hit and miss, they have so much awesome material and heard nothing but good things as far as live show goes so I really can't wait :mrgreen:

Blue Album is their strongest.

I hope they play early evening, with the sun setting. Most likely will, they seem to be subheadliners/saturn headliners

Amazing addition!

Was hoping they'd be at a fest this year after their epic set at Leeds Fest last year.

Cannot wait - hope they pull out some hilerious cover songs again!

They were amazing at reading, expect all the top singles me thinks. A lot of people love the older stuff but they have the odd newer corkers. 'Beverley Hills' is an obvious one. 'Memories' is also a cracking single (featured on Jackass 3D). I also really like 'the red album' but I think a lot more people didnt. 'Greatest Man that ever lived' is also a tune! :music-rockon:

Probably because the last time they played the UK other than R&Ls was when you were still in nappies

So pumped.

Missed them at Reading last year as I'd rather have removed my toenails (completely) with my teeth than go to that Sunday (even though in retrospect I drew up a day plan that I could have coped with).

So this makes up for it, can't wait.
