Hey, now... a few good bands did Lollapallooza...  in particular, that 
most brilliant punk/ska/surf/rock/pop-hybrid band, POSSUM DIXON!  They 
were my favorite US band (though at REM at their best ties with them).  So 
I'm both an Oils fan AND a fan of a band that did Lollpallooza.  (Wasn't 
there a "country" song about a guy who was "a walking contradiction, 
partly fact and partly fiction..."?)
