The official Lollapalooza site says the lineup won't hit the wires until tomorrow...but an ad for the festival published in a local Wisconsin paper found its way to our desks. Technically the weekly doesn't come out until tomorrow but it's available in some places early, as in on Wednesdays, as in today. So, as you can see, the bold names appearing at the resurged Lollapalooza festival on August 3-5th include Pearl Jam, My Morning Jacket, Snow Patrol, the Stooges, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Modest Mouse, TV on The Radio, LCD Soundsystem, Interpol, Patti Smith, Regina Spektor, Lupe Fiasco, Amy Winehouse, the Hold Steady, and many more. Let the feasting on organic vegan burritos while rocking out begin.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
