Top 10 Bands that Sound Better LiveI tried to keep my picks to bands I have personally seen. However, if you think a band sounds better live based on live albums you've heard, throw them on the list.
The Top Ten
Best live show I've ever been too. Sound,energy,speed,was amazing. BIGGEST figure 8 pit I've ever been in/seen in my life. So thankful I got to see them.
I'll admit, I'm jealous as hell. The top band I'd have loved to see live, but never did.
So talented. To hear each one of them jam solo live was amazing. We all know about Les, but they have one of the most underrated drummers in rock music.
They just straight sound great live. Not much more to say. I believe Joey is one of the most underrated guitarist out there. The dude jams. Stoked I got the see the original line up.
Hearing Poison Ivy jam on her guitar live is a blessing. Lex (R.I.P.) was always fun and crazy. Fun show with great sound.
Unfortunately, this is the only crew listed (so far) where I've actually been at the show, but I've seen them like 6 times. They are great live, and a lot of fun.
These guys jam. One of my favorite psychobilly bands. They put all of their hearts and soul into their live performances.
Amazing live. I have a friend that I grew up with but we were into totally different things. I was into skateboarding, punk rock, I drank and smoked. He was into raves, techno music, didn't drink or smoke. We had our own group of friends but yet we were still good friends. In the early 90's he agreed to go to his first punk show with me if I went to my first underground rave with him. I took him to see Social D. He fell in love with them. After that he came with me to see a few more bands but he still says Social D was the best live. Years later he went with his girlfriend to the show where they recorded the Live At The Roxy album. To this day he's still a huge Social D fan.
One of the best live punk bands of all time. Even to this day.
When recorded in the studio, they’re one of my favorite punk bands from the U.K. With that being said, they’re even better live.
So many of their songs performed live sound so much better then their studio recorded versions.
Watch the Wembley live show.
Not only do they sound great live, the band’s, especially frontman Monkey, theatrics make for a killer fun show. One of punk’s most fun band to see live.
Sound great live and a lot of fun.
I know it's probably blasphemy here, but I'm not really a fan. I only like And Justice For All and Kill'em All. With that being said, I saw them with Guns N Roses in the mid 90's with my girlfriend at the time who was a fan. I gotta admit, they rocked live. I thought a lot of their songs sounded better live. By the way, Guns N' Roses SUCKED live.
The show I saw was about 70% punk. They sound awesome. True musicians and masters at their crafts in both punk and hip hop.
Seen these dudes many times in the early and mid 90's. They play really fast and really LOUD live. The singer Mark is a coked out wildman on stage. He's hilarious. At almost every show I went to of theirs, Mark would get a chick to get naked on stage. Crazy fun shows if you don't mind being spit on.
