Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Pepprers and…..The Beach Boys @Bonnaroo???

It was hard enough to come to grips with the idea Bonnaroo has NOTHING to do with Bono from U2…now there’s a new issue we have to wrangle with in our feeble little brains….

The Beach Boys are playing Bonnaroo.

Not some punk band called the Beach Boys…those Beach Boys, the Kokomo “we’ll get there fast and then we’ll take it slow” Beach Boys.  The “Help Me Rhonda” Beach Boys.

Here’s out promise to YOU.  The Beach Boys will NOT play Jamboree 2012, unless they agree to only cover the Smashing Pumpkins.  That would be cool.

Beach Boys aside, the lineup for Bonnaroo was announced in total ( and there some top quality acts no questions.


Here are a few:

Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Shins
Foster The People
Ben Folds Five
Alice Cooper*
Flogging Molly
Young The Giant
The Joy Formidable

So hop in your little deuce coop and hit the road for Manchester, Tennesee (bring some mountain dew to share) and don’t yoo-hoo, or ya-hoo…but Bannaroo June 7-10.  If you’re going, buy a Q101 T-Shirt and wear it with pride!  All we ask is you buy a shot glass from a gift shop in a truck stop and bring it back for us.
