Duran Duran at Coachella: 'It's an absolute dream'

Duran Duran made their first-ever appearance at the Coachella music festival and what I'm reading, they rocked the faces off all the young slackers in attendance.

"The performance featured songs off their latest Mark Ronson-produced studio album, All You Need Is Now, mixed in with the classic hits -- Ordinary World, Rio, Girls on Film -- that first shot the London-based New Wave band to the top of the charts. For most people the most surprising thing about the set was how much Duran Duran still sounds like classic Duran Duran," Spinner reports

 "We've just kinda been off this stuff," bassist John Taylor told Spinner. "It feels like the perception of the band has changed slightly. There are a lot of younger people getting into the band. And Coachella, it's a dream come true, isn't it? It's an absolute dream."

Oddest moment of the night? Probably Double-D's interpretation of Lady Gaga's Poker Face during their Girls on Film finale. Relive the weirdness here (with a full DD set list following the video):
