62 System Of A Down System Of A Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American Nu Metal group from Glendale, California . The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. more.

Playing live in Holland has to be one of the best concerts ever! Daron's guitar stopped working, so he announced "This sucks and so do we," then got the crowd to boo them and give them the finger. And also, unlike some other bands, they actually played their songs well (when the guitar worked anyway) - Porcupine

Trust me they're the best at this. They can be so humorous on stage at times, like when Daron gets the crowd excited, Serj dances uniquely feeling the melody of the song, and they can actually perform unlike other bands.

63 Slayer Slayer more.

Mayhem 2012. No other way to put it than to say bravo, great band and an amazing performance

66 Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine is a Nu-Metal band formed in Los Angeles, California. The band consists of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, bassist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello and drummer Brad Wilk.

I've never seen them in concert, but I've seen videos and good God. Zack is an animal. I can tell they're amazing live

A crime that they are down here. Pure anger in their concerts

How is Rage not in the top ten...

The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Watch their performances on songs like idioteque and paranoid android --- they are amazing -- as simple as that.
They are perhaps the band with best and most use of rare instruments typical of alternate music

If you don't think these guys are amazing, watch Karma Police live at Glastonbury 2003.

Great live band - Jiorl

1.pyramid song
2.You and whose army?
3.Everything in its right place
4.Kid A
5.The National Anthem
6.In Limbo

70 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

I'm kind of disappointed that limp bizkit is all the way back here. Yeah I know they get a lot of hate but Fred Durst himself can probably put on a better show than all the members of slipknot, I would put them in the top 20 at least.

Have you see any live performances? AMAZING! This band rocks!

Ok, Limp Bizkit is hated, but it's live performances is PERFECT! This guys are amazing. Limp Bizkit is definitely deserves to be number 1.

71 Dope D.O.D.
72 Rise Against Rise Against Rise Against is an American melodic hardcore band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1999. The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes.

Rise against is charismatic and personal... You can feel the emotion poured into every piece. Loud and powerful, everything you want from a rock performance.
