    In their prime, Iron, Maiden, Metallica & AC/DC took some beating.
    Green Day are very good. very suprised by how slick the show was.

    Bowling For Soup are very entertaining with theit "pick tricks"
    Sum41 were very good, dropping old metal intros into the set as tributes.

    Saw Marilyn Manson a few times as support for big bands. Wasn't really my bag, but very impressive live show.

    Guns N Roses were always epic.

    Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton were both pretty disappointing, but maybe my expectations were too high.

    The Darkness totally owned the stage on their Download set a few years ago, as did Disturbed.

    Less Than Jake in a club setting are always top draw.

    although I wouldn't have paid money for it, Yngwie Malmsteen was very entertaining.

    In no particular order:

    Less Than Jake - So much fun EVERY time
    WASP - fucking mint!
    Terrorvision - Grew up on them and did not disapoint
    The Wildhearts - can't believe no ones mentioned them, awesome live band
    The Offspring - Fire engines, that is all
    Amen - fucking mental
    Antiproduct - See Amen
    Slipknot - touring the first album, insane
    Machinehead - Truly awesome
    Devildriver - just mint, twice in a weekend
    Motley Crue - Hardcore as fuck live show
    Killing Joke - on with anyone but the Crue would have destroyed them
    Clutch - musical genius
    Black Label Society - was fucking great
    Metallica - good but a little let down
    Down - Fucking brilliant

    Theres loads more tbh, Motorhead and Alice Cooper were both mint, saw the Foos half a dozen times too, nothing comes close to the first time at Leeds tho.

    The Hellacopters and Mondo Generator, both at the LA2, are two of the best live shows I've ever seen. Now I'm sad that none of those things exist any-more.

    Radiohead, John Garcia, Jeffrey Lewis.

    Metallica - greatest front man ever and songs that sound better when they're loud and raw.

    Crowbar - brutal doom in a small club can't be beaten.

    Tool - video/music combination, stunning.

    John Mayer - was really cool with crowd interaction and it felt like he loved just playing music.

    One Minute Silence - just unbelievable energy, never seen another band so animated on stage.
