The announcement was made on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show on Monday night (Feb. 15). Confirmation of the headlining slot comes days after the news the Californian rock troupe will play a free show in London's Finsbury Park on Jun. 6 to thank fans for making 'Killing in the Name' Christmas number one last year.

This year's Download takes place on Jun. 11 to 13 and also features AC/DC and Them Crooked Vultures. What you won't see at this year's Download, is flags in the main arena, of course.
Tickets for Download are available now and cost £180 for five days camping, and £170 for three days.
