This was after their UK number one at Christmas. And also a comeback. Amazing. Download 2010. "This one is for Simon Cowell" plays Know Your Enemy
79Steel Panther
Feel the Steel

Seen them three times. First was at the third stage at Download, the next two were on the main stage a couple of years apart. They must have the record for most boobs shown on the big screen at the festival. In fact I think after the first time this happened pc culture kicked in and they stopped having screens showing the crowd
Runnin' Wild

The lead singer scaled the stage and jumped off the top scaffold. Mental case. Download 2010

I only recognised Dino and Burton. But they played well. Download 2010 or 12

Download 2010 or 2012
85Chase and Status
No More Idols

Caused some controversy when a DJ act was booked for a rock festival. But hey, it worked with Pendulum. Apparently Rob Flynn was pissed because they were higher on the bill than Machine Head. Doesn't sound like him at all. Download 2012
86Corey Taylor

He played Spit it Out acoustically and instead of asking people to sit down he requested we all hop on one leg instead. Was a laugh. Download 2012
87Tenacious D
Tenacious D

There was a giant blow up penis on stage at one point. They were pretty good but not as good as I would have hoped. Download 2012

They played a mish mash of songs and then the Black Album in full in reverse order followed by an encore of One and Seek and Destroy. Not gonna lie it was awesome. Saw them three years later at Leeds and was unimpressed. Funny how my opinion changed

The Sufferer and the Witness

Such a good live band. Saw them in Birmingham around 2012 and a few months later at Download
For Blood and Empire

92Black Label Society

I think this was Download 2012. Wall of Marshall amps
Rust in Peace

I don't remember them being that great unfortunately. 2012

Think this was their comeback. I saw half their set and missed the rest because my girlfriend at the time wanted to go see Rise Against on another stage. Kicking myself now. RIP Chris. Download 2012
95Black Sabbath

No words. Apart from Amazing. Download 2012
