Headlining Coachella, MGMT Leave the ‘Kids’ at Home

We’re all familiar with the searing disappointment of a band inexplicably not playing that one song you love during their show. Well, now imagine the concert is the monster of all concerts (Coachella), the band one of the buzziest there is right now (MGMT), and the song (“Kids”) one that Rolling Stone named as among the top 100 songs of the decade. The Brooklyn-based duo played most of their less-accessible second album at the music festival today, yet chose not to play one of their three hits, angering tweeting fans and bloggers alike. Remains to be seen if fans will be getting another apology, or if, as they said about response to their second album, they just "don't give a shit." [Idolator]
