"Stop Making Sense", great call Giles. That should be number one on everyone's list. It's still the best filmed concert I've ever seen.

Maybe not "must haves", but I find the following rent worthy at a minimum:

The Pretenders "Loose in L.A."
Best of Bowie
Depeche Mode "101" and "Live in Milan" ("Devotional" for the cinematography)
The Cure "Trilogy"
NIN "And All That Could Have Been"

Director's Label Series - The Works of Spike Jonze, Chris Cunningham, and Michel Gondry
Sonic Youth - Corporate Ghosts 1990-2002

Underworld Live: Everything Everything
No Direction Home - Bob Dylan (Documentary)

I own the following. I'd recommend any of them to someone who's a fan of the specific artist and the bolded ones to any one that's just a big music fan in general, i.e. the ones I consider 'must haves'.

Bruce Springsteen - The Complete Video Anthology
Doves - Where We're Calling From
Death Cab for Cutie - Drive Well, Sleep Carefully
Eels - With Strings: Live from Town Hall
Elbow - Leaders of the Free World
Jimmy Eat World - Believe in What You Want
Jump, Little Children - Live at the Music Farm
Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains the Same
Our Lady Peace - Live
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Queen - Live at Wembley Stadium
Snow Patrol - Live at Somerset House
Spend an Evening with Saddle Creek
Travis - Singles
U2 - Go Home: Live from Slane Castle
U2 - Rattle and Hum
U2 - The Best of U2 1990-2000

The Saddle Creek DVD isn't a collection of music videos or a concert film, though it does feature some live performances. It's more a loose documentary showing how the label was formed and has a bunch of interviews and earlier performances from the likes of Bright Eyes, Cursive, The Good Life, Now It's Overhead, Son Ambulance, Desaparecidos, The Faint, etc. It's a pretty cool look at how a bunch of high school and college kids started their own music label and have experienced a fair degree of success.

Really like the Portishead DVD, the concert is awesome and has alot of the videos.
I would add all the Depeche Mode live DVDs and Metallica "S&M" with the SF orchustra(sp?).

Metallica - "Cunning Stunts" is amazing.
Queensryche has a couple of great ones as well as Dream Theater's "Score" & "Live at Buddokon" sets.
