The Coachella 2013 rumor mill continues to churn out possible headliners for next year's festivities, with Pretty Much Amazing posting a screen-cap of an e-mail from the social concert-calendar site Songkick, which added Daft Punk, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Phoenix to speculation that has already included the Rolling Stones.

Coachella 2012: Rolling Stone's Complete Coverage

Whether the supposed e-mail alert was a total fake, or perhaps just a really bad goof is unclear (though for what its worth, Phoenix do have a new album slated for potential release next spring).

The Stones sparked Coachella talk themselves last week when a show listed for April 12th popped in the tour section of their mobile app. The date was  quickly removed, though not before fans snapped screen grabs.

Back in October, Keith Richards hinted to Rolling Stone that it was possible the Stones' 50th Anniversary celebration would continue into 2013: "My experience with the Rolling Stones is that once the juggernaut starts rolling, it ain't gonna stop. So without sort of saying definitely yes – yeah. We ain't doing all this for four gigs!"

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
