Ten Bands that We Were

Share this with friends:

Now that we have announced the lineup for the X96 Toyota Big Ass Show. Here are some artists that we “thought” about inviting but, unfortunately, just couldn’t make it.

1. Nickelback
One of our employees suggested Nickelback… we had to let him go.
2. Creed
*See Nickelback*
3. Daughtry
Let’s be honest with one another here, you would only show up to sing that one song about coming home. Aren’t people over American Idol artists?
4. Anberlin
The boys of Anberlin are currently heading overseas to say goodbye to their Australian, European, and other friends across the globe before heading back to the states for one last time. The thought of saying goodbye to one of their favorite cities earlier than intended was too much for them. Instead, they’re sticking us on the end of their final tour. Expect to see them October 17 at The Complex.
5. U2
Bono, The Edge, and the other guys were too busy writing new music, writing other superhero musicals and saving the world. They couldn’t be bothered to make an impromptu stop in Utah.
6. Taking Back Sunday
They just played two soldout back-to-back shows with The Used three months ago! What more do you want from these guys?
7. Foo Fighters
Dave Grohl has been way too busy with his new HBO series Sonic Highways and working on a new album for the Foo Fighters. He’s also been seen swimming with the otters, so the man has a lot on his plate.

Dave Grohl finds peace among these furry aquatic animals.


8. Red Hot Chili Peppers
The chili peppers are locked away in their studio working on new music and doing who knows what else. Unknown sources have told us that they won’t make contact with anyone, except the pizza man, until the new album is complete.
9. Blur
But only on the condition that they would play Song 2 in loop. They wouldn’t go for it.
10. Kid Rock?

  


If you missed it, here is the BASH lineup: A Day To Remember, Neon Trees, Phantogram, Capital Cities, Broods, Nightmare and The Cat, and Priory. There are more artists that will be added to the lineup within the next couple weeks!
