The Smiths are atop Coachella’s annual wishlist, so it’s not surprising that the festival invited the band to headline its 2013 installment. Also not surprising: Morrissey turned them down.

According to The Huffington Post, a spokesman for the musician said in a statement, “Morrissey has refused a Smiths headline offer for this year’s Coachella Festival.”

Coachella has attempted to reunite The Smiths for years, even at one point offering to go all vegetarian in exchange for a performance. (Morrissey walked off stage during his 2009 appearance due to the smell of a neighboring BBQ stand.)

If worse comes to worst, they could always resort to holograms.
