1. Pulp, "Do You Remember That First Time?"

Pulp is at the top of almost everyone's list as a sign that (almost) everything from the 90s is cool again. Aside from the mayhem their biggest crowdpleaser "Common People" will cause, we wish we could be there to hear them rip into this U2-esque barnburner.

2. Godspeed You Black Emperor, "East Hastings"

After their weeklong residency at Great American Music Hall, GYBE is high-tailing it back to Coachella's second weekend. This music is not for the faint of heart: It's heavy, long, conceptual and devoid of any pop structure. If you "get" it you get it, if you don't, you don't.

3. M83, "Intro ft. Zola Jesus"

We dare you not to be moved almost to tears by the the epic build of this song. Zola herself will most likely make a cameo at Coachella for it, but we'll still have our fingers crossed for an appearance during at least one of M83's two performances this weekend at the Fillmore.

4. Refused, "New Noise"

For teen punks in the 90s, this Swedish band was the end-all-be-all of hardcore until 1999, when they announced their split in an open letter entitled "Refused Are F**king Dead." But Refused devotees have been rejoicing since the start on 2012, when they announced a reunion tour and a hotly anticipated performance at Coachella. Their Warfield show is sold out, so you can either cry yourself to sleep or troll Craigslist until you emerge victorious.
