81Thousand Foot Krutch

I can't believe no one has ever even thought of placing this band in the top ten list. They are, there is no other word for it, AMAZING. Especially live. Trevor Mcnevon has a simply splendid voice. The guitar riffs are totally superb. It is one of the most underrated bands. It deserves to be in the same league as the other top bands.

82Bring Me the HorizonBring Me the Horizon are a British rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish.

They're shows have always been awesome to go to. Whether its in a small club, or the main stage of a festival like Download. These guys always bring their A-game. Who cares if their sound has changed? When you see them perform live it's an incredible experience.

They are great, metalcore/deathcore m/. Their stage presence is awesome. Oli Sykes is a good screamer though many people hated him his is one of a kind...

86GenesisGenesis are an English rock band formed at Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey in 1967. The most commercially successful and long-lasting line-up includes keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and drummer/singer Phil Collins.

Being at 63 is a DISGRACE to rock fans everywhere. Simply epic performances and light shows. And, where is Gabriel on the list?

Very very special live performances.
They are better than almost all of the bands in this list.

87DeftonesDeftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

The best band I've ever seen live...and it's not even close. I've never seen a vocalist that compares, either screaming or singing, to Chino Moreno.

I have seen Korn multiple times over the past 10 years and EVER SINGLE TIME they knock it out of the park! My husband has seen a lot more main stream metal concerts than I have and thought I was exaggerating Korn's awesomeness. This past summer was his first experience with Korn and he agreed they crank it up and create an energy that is just something that I haven't yet been able to compare to another band. We are not HUGE Korn fans, they just do a very, very good job in concert. Thanks, Korn! See you next year!

One of the best and heaviest bands going today.

How is this band down here? they should be above avenged sevenfold at least, at music festivals this is the band that get the crowd going nuts more than almost every other band every time

91Dire StraitsDire Straits were a British rock band formed in 1977 by Mark Knopfler, his younger brother David Knopfler, John Illsley, and Pick Withers.

I can't believe they aren't even on this list. The Dire Straits were masters playing their songs live. A live song was always different than before, and some songs were double the length when they were played live. They made every second count.

I never take any vote based charts seriously, because so many heroes are overlooked, not unlike these guys... I feel bad for people who haven't seen these guys perform live, because they are truly amazing) 119 places to low if u ask me.

9230 Seconds To MarsThirty Seconds to Mars (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band consists of Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Miličević.

Jared Leto makes sure everyone at the gig gets on with their performance, getting them involved and singing along even when they're at a festival where not everyone knows their music. This band knows how to put on a good show!

You people really got some problems! How can you miss such a fantastic band. These guys are purely brilliant while in live or studio. Jared Leto has one of the best vocals!

Leto sounds like on the cd live. Who does that really? Jumping into the crowd and surfing? Feels like your part of the damn show!

Come on just look at one of their shows. All 3 members playing their music with a passion, you can't miss things like that!

94Alice CooperAlice Cooper was an American rock band formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1964. The band consisted of lead singer Vince Furnier, Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, and Neal Smith.

I just saw Alice Cooper live last night and let me just say, it was amazing. There was not a dull moment with Alice onstage.

It has got to be Cooper. He set the standard for all theatrical rock shows. The guy is still an amazing live act. - hardrockfanatic

What is Alice Cooper doing At %53? He invented the live show!
