The 11 Best Jack Johnson Songs
Jack Johnson is headlining Coachella. I don't get it. I like Jack Johnson. Hell, during the 3rd quarter of the Super bowl, I could have used a nice dose of Jack Johnson to keep me from falling asleep. But does anyone who goes to Coachella like Jack Johnson? Even if you can find a handful...and a handful is pushing it...is it enough to constitute a headliner slot? Jack Johnson headlining Coachella is like asking Pearl Jam to play at the Republican National Convention, just slightly less dangerous. I get Portishead...I sort of get Roger Waters...but Jack Johnson? Really? There was no one else out there to wrangle? The Police, the Cure, Beck, Ryan Adams, and The Mars Volta were all busy? How about a uber-re-union like Oingo Boingo? Those guys probably have nothing to do... Or Stone Roses...? The Smiths? (Okay, the last one is a pipe dream)...but Jack Johnson. What are the organizers thinking...after 3 days of drugs, sex, and $10 bottles of water, you're planning on lulling everyone to sleep? I don't get it. But Good Luck!
