Haters need to hate, but if you point a finger there are three pointing right back at you. When the Beastie Boys dropped out of Outside Lands because of MCA's illness, organizers scrambled to find a replacement. The solution, Tenacious D, isn't exactly on level with the Beasties, but these things happen. Apparently nobody told M.I.A., who had the slot before them. She dropped the following bomb on Twitter:
I ORIGINALLY BOOKED ON SHOWS COZ BEASTIES WERE HEADLINERS , BUT NOW THEY AINT DOING IT AND I JUS WANNA SAY , WE HAVE TO GO HARD!!!
SO ME AND JACK BLACK ARE BACK TO BACK, BEASTIES GET WELL SOON!
YOUR ALL WELCOME ON STAGE FROM THE GET GO, FUCK IT! IM TAKIN BIRD FLU OUT OF THE SET ! JUS TO MAKE A POINT
Everyone is of course entitled to an opinion, but perhaps M.I.A. should realize that Jack Black is stepping up to the plate to fill the slot, and that most of the crowd will have a better time listening to Tenacious D than listening to Kala again with a little Slumdog Millionaire thrown in for good measure.
