Bonnaroo 2009 Line-Up. Who are the Must See Bands?

Here is the line-up for the 2009 Bonnaroo Music Fest.  We will be there this year, so I highlighted the bands that I really want to see.  If a band isn’t highlighted, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m not into them, it could be that I have just seen them one or more times in the past (it also can mean that I just am not into them).  Anyway, who would you not be able to miss?  Who would you pass on that I have highlighted?

Tickets are already on sale here.
