Is Chicago's Lollapalooza still as countercultural as it used to be?

Lollapalooza celebrates its 20th anniversary this year in Chicago's Grant Park. This year features Eminem, but also Coldplay. Other standouts include The Kills and Ween.  I guess it has something for everyone, but I'm not sure that's in the festival's favor. Who wants to shell out $215 for a three day pass to see a bunch of bands you kind of like? Plus, it just seems pretty tame.  Is Lollapalooza still the counter-revolutionary festival that it used to be?
