Your favorite live bands!

Today I was going through some old programs of the shows I've been to over the years... Oh man the memories

My favorite shows were:

-KISS (1977): Went with my 17 year old cousin. I was 9. And he was smoking a funny cigarette (so were a lot of people!!).

-Queen (1980): I knew maybe 7 songs but it was worth it!

-Rush (1984): The "Grace Under Pressure" tour. I usually hate drum solos but Neil Peart is DA MAN!!

-The Cult (opening act: Guns n' Roses): "Sweet child o' mine" was just released and I remember Slash and Duff sitting behind us when their set was done and Slash smelled REALLY BAD!!

-Iggy Pop (opening act: Alice in Chains): just a solid kick ass show all around

-The replacements : they played for 40 minutes, gave the finger to everyone and left. I was actually expecting 20 minutes so I was happy.

-Bodycount: I remember it was New Year's eve and Ice-T gave everyone champagne!

Enough about me, what about you guys?

Pearl Jam - liked them so much that i went and saw them 22 times...flew across country this year to see them at Bridge Benefit and Santa Barbara

Mudvayne - they just own

Bloodhound Gang - one of the best, funniest show i ever went to, underage titties on stage, can go wrong w/ that

Tool, Kittie, and V SHape Mind are an honorable mention

My favorite live band is Yo La Tengo. I've seen them six times and hope I can see them (at least) six more times.

I also thought the New Pornographers and the Apples in Stereo put on really good shows when I saw them.
