Do you remember when Blur made their second comeback last year? If not, that's okay: the Coachella crowd definitely forgot about The Ballad of Darren on Saturday night (April 13) when the band performed to an especially tepid audience.

Footage from their performance of the usually sing-a-long evoking "Girls & Boys" surfaced online, showing a strutting Damon Albarn getting increasingly upset with the crowd. After motioning for a call-and-response a few times to no avail, Albarn said, "You're never seeing us again, so you might as well fucking sing it!"

Blur are slotted to perform at Coachella again on Saturday (April 20), and so far, there's been no mention as to whether or not Albarn's threats were serious. If true, these California influencers have no idea what they're missing out on.
