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

113 Kings of Leon Kings of Leon

Watched them at V festival a while ago and although it seems they don't talk much with the audience there music is just one of the most chilled amazing stuff and SEX ON FIRE and USE SOMEBODY are crazy live

114 Oasis Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

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.

115 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop 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.

116 Alter Bridge Alter Bridge Alter Bridge is an American rock band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 2004. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Myles Kennedy, lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

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!

117 The Doors The Doors The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore.

Live concerts by the Doors were a crapshoot. If Morrison was bored, he could be lackluster. If he ingested too many substances, he might just pass out onstage. However, when things worked out just right, he was better than ANYBODY, including Freddie Mercury.


118 Eagles Eagles The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner.

Insane The Eagles ere one of the best live bands ever.

Really? Eagles should be in the top 10!

120 The Smiths The Smiths The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce.

Unforgettable band, for those in the know the best British band of all time. Beautiful melodies plus words from the best bar Dylan. Check out "rank" they never put a foot wrong.

Nobody writes lyrics like morrissey.if you're northern and poor he encapsulates it perfectly.being trapped, feeling hopeless,only Lennon came close.marrs hauntingly beautiful music completed the perfection.devastating live, a tight unit but nothing lasts forever. Unlike most of the rock behemoths it was all about the music.
