My Morning Jacket, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, LCD Soundsystem and the previously announced Pavement will take the stage at this year's Sasquatch! Music Festival, invading Washington State's Gorge on Memorial Day weekend, May 29th to 31st. The National, Ween, Public Enemy, Massive Attack, She and Him and the Hold Steady will also perform at this year's fest, which revealed its lineup last night at special concert featuring performances by recent Breaking act Surfer Blood and Atlas Sound.

Look back at 2009's giant Sasquatch! in photos.

In fact, this year's Sasquatch! festival lineup reads like a Who's Who of past Rolling Stone Breaking artists: The xx, Dam-Funk, Mayer Hawthorne, Girls, Dirty Projectors, the Low Anthem and many more. As always, Sasquatch! will also feature a handful of Pacific Northwest artists like Band of Horses, Quasi, Minus the Bear and the New Pornographers. If that wasn't enough, Sasquatch! organizers promise additional artist announcements in the coming weeks. Tickets for the Northwest's hottest festival go on sale this Saturday, February 20th at the Sasquatch! official Website.

Song Stories

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
