I only have a few (and bear in mind that I like pop), but I like Dave Matthews Band: Listener Supported and Britney Spears: Live and More. DMB is just a good show and the Britney disc has some nice 5.1 remixes of her songs to demo your systems. In fact all of her DVDs have decent 5.1 versions. That's just a particularly strong one.

Due to content or is the sound quality that good? I have it on VHS and am on the fence about replacing that one with the DVD.
If the sound quality is outstanding that would do it for me.

Definitely buy the DVD...the sound quality is awesome (well, I've only listened to the DTS track). Plus, the extras are absolutely amazing...extra songs from MSG, an excellent hour long excerpt of a San Francisco radio broadcast of the "day after," commentary, and a 50 page book about Altamont. The package is definitely worth it.

Another vote for NIN: All That Could Have Been.

The DTS is incredible. I had some friends over and one of them brought that DVD over. We cranked it in my theater and it sounded incredible. Video wise, it looked great, but wasn't widescreen.

I'm not a HUGE NIN fan either, I was just stunned by the audio of this DVD, especially because its a live concert

Some of my favorites...

NIN - "And All That Could Have Been"
Eurythmics - "Peacetour" (stellar 16x9 enhanced presentation with 5.1 DD sound)
George Michael - "Ladies & Gentlemen" (5.1 DD remix of just about all of his videos)
Alice In Chains - "Unplugged"
Alice In Chains - "Music Bank" (5.1 DD video collection)

I second that. That performance just puts me in disbelief. That guy could play unlike anyone I have ever heard.

Well since nobody's mentioned my two favorites:

In addition to some that have already been mentioned, I really like Moby's Play - the DVD. It has most of the videos from that album (strangely absent is the biggest hit - "South Side") that American MTV doesn't air (don't get me started on that issue). There's also live live performances, a home video of Moby goofing around and a cool 90 minute mix of remixes set to some trippy computer animation. Not a bad package.
