Radiohead and NIN to Headline Lollapalooza?

Yes, you may have heard the rumor last week, but an official word may be coming soon: Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails are expected to headline Lollapalooza at Grant Park in Chicago. The festival will be held on August 1 – 3; the lineup has yet to be announced.

While both bands are still only expected to perform at Lollapalooza, one thing is for certain: their shared notion of low-priced digital downloads (and little to no pull from major labels) is a great stride in the right direction for the burgeoning music industry – the people’s side, that is.

Artistic credibility aside, respect is due.

In other anticlimactic news, fairy-haired blowhard Perez Hilton isn’t too impressed about the two bands headlining, quipping “This would have been a great lineup…10 years ago!”

You wouldn’t exist 10 years ago, Hilton – God bless and curse the Internet.
