Which is the best band to see in concert?

Remember that semester when you dropped out of college and used your tuition money to follow the Grateful Dead around the country? No? Well, lemme tell you — those were the days. What a show those guys could give! (Sure, it took me seven years to earn a bachelors degree, but it was worth it.) Led Zeppelin’s new five-hour DVD reminds us of the pure power of a great live performance. Which makes us wonder: Which band is your favorite to see in concert? Even if it’s just for a night…and not an entire semester.
