Those of you who have been keeping up with UK festivals this year will know that one of the headline slots at the UK’s biggest rock festival was given, for some reason, to a lumbering, crippled dinosaur of a band, with their best years over 2 decades behind them and a deeply egotistical, deeply irritating singer seemingly intent on officially becoming the world’s biggest tool guiding them ever further into mediocrity. The festival goers who were duped in parting with around £150 of hard-earned for a ticket have been praying every day and every night that this band – who are still living off the glories of three not-that-good singles from a not-that-good album released in the 1980s – will pull out and allow somebody relevant to take their slot.

Unfortunately, Guns n Roses are still scheduled to play Reading and Leeds.

And by 'dot' I mean 'full stop on the last sentence', obviously.

The Reading/Leeds line-uo this year is genuinely atrocious. Does anybody seriously want to see Limp Bizkit in 2010?

Theres a few bands I really want to see (Gaslight Anthem, QOTSA, Bad Religion) but other than that its mediocre at best unfortunately :(

Yeah, Reading line-up isn't [i]amazing[/i], but come on it's hardly atrocious. Yes Guns N' Roses suck, yes Limp Bizjit are horrible, but there are some genuinly great bands further down the bill. Phoenix, Surfer Blood, Streetlight, ARCADE FIRE, Against Me!, Gaslight Anthem, Frank Turner, Modest Mouse, Blink, Weezer (hopefuly they play their good stuff), Thrice, Foals, Miike Snow will all put on more than decent shows.

And besides the terrible bands just make time for getting wasted and doing festival shit.

So fuck you, Reading haters.
