After teasing a Motorhead appearance earlier in the day, the complete Coachella 2014 lineup was revealed late Wednesday night (Jan. 8).

But in 2014, Motorhead will be performing at Coachella.

For the second year in a row, you nominated, but ultimately denied induction to Deep Purple. Fans of the legendary hard rock / heavy metal act were disappointed by the snub last year, but as Deep Purple were once again passed over for the 2014 ceremony, the Internet has blown up with serious vitriol against your Hall of Fame.
