One of the greatest ever live acts, with Liam's swaggering attitude and powerful vocals and Noel on lead guitar, no one in the world comes close.

It's impossible to not have Oasis on this list, irrespective of some lame performances and irrespective of how much you dislike them.

103Fall Out BoyFall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

Fall out boy makes it sound like they are able to reproduce their records on stage and then some. Patrick Stump is known to throw is voice up and down a lot and he can do it even better on stage.

104Biffy Clyro

Just watch their live set from Reading in 2013, outstanding!

Leeds 2013-pretty damn good!

They are the best live band in the world! They put on the best concerts in the whole world, so why is it so low? I can't answer it because not even I know why. Are people dumb? So with that out of the way, lets talk about the greatest concert/experience of my life! First off, I was so excited when I walked into the venue. I have wanted to see this band for my entire life! A sign said "Warning: This show contains strobe lights, lasers and pyrotechnics" When I saw that I knew I was in for a good time. So then we walked in the arena and waited until they came on. Suddenly, the lights went off and they introduced TSO.Thank God! And that was the start of the best experience you will ever have! From there on out, it was AMAZING! Lasers flying all over the arena so crazily that I couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing. And this was for every single song, lasers everywhere. But I have yet to mention the lights and pyrotechnics. The lights were so crazy! They were flashing ...more - cadencr22

How the hell can you put Led Zeppelin at 15, Alter Bridge at 75 and Guns N' Roses at 10? Any of those who voted here have actually listened to these bands live? You should! Queen No. 1 as always (the only band who deserves it's spot! - AK-Em

Myles vocals are the best even when singing live!
