Today, we'll be announcing the Rock the Garden 2015 lineup. In fact, by the time the Coffee Break airs, we will have already revealed Saturday and Sunday's opening acts.

But as we look ahead to Rock the Garden 2015, it's impossible not to think back on past Rock the Garden moments. The Current and Walker Art Center have been co-presenting Rock the Garden since 2008 — that's now seven years of great music in the books. In that time, Rock the Garden has evolved from a few hours where everyone stood in the street to a two-day festival where thousands fill the hillside at Walker Art Center, overlooking the beautiful Sculpture Garden and Minneapolis skyline.

So for today's Coffee Break, what bands from past Rock the Garden lineups would you like to hear? What moments would you like to revisit? Send us your requests.
