    ALL These BANDS SUCK!!!! Boring and yawning music… Rage against the machine is probably the only band in the line up that’s worth watching…the rest are mediocre at best and are unknown….Cage the Elephant ??? who’s that ?

    Give me Megadeath, Moterhead, Zombie, Metallica, Zach Wyled-Ozzy,Judas Priest-Iron Maiden any time!!!! This real music not this whimpy winnie roast….

      Why would someone with your taste in music even listen to KROQ? They aren’t a heavy metal station, even tho they sometimes slip in some Metalica.I agree the bands playing the roast this year are weak, but OZZY??, Judas Preist?? come- on!
      KNAC and KMET died years ago and so should the bands it played.
