and the big coup for NME was announcing that Led Zepplin would be the "surprise" headliner that they teased us all about earlier in the day. Wow. This looks like a pretty incredible lineup, at least for hard rock fans. Update: Also, NME apparently can't tell the difference between Lez and Led.

Zeppelin are NOT playing Bonnaroo

NME is retarded and cannot read the difference between Lez Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin.
