    Best 10 dollars I ever spent in my life. Blood cannons, ridiculous costumes, political/pop culture icons/giant alien monsters slayed in effigy. You really couldn't find a better way to spend 10 dollars.

    What's the deal with everyone loving Tool live? I saw them at Download last year, and although admittedly I'm not a major fan (I like a couple of songs, Lateralus, Schism, the usual) I found the show to be plain boring. Maynard stood at the back of the stage behind some sort of prop, and the only conversation with the audience was some ramblings about how "you're all standing in piss". Was this a one-off bad show, or am I missing something?

    Also, as I'm not really a big Radiohead fan (shock horror!), can someone tell me in like 10 words or less what is so amazing about their live shows, 'cus I'd love to see them, depsite not really being into them.

    Green Day now pales in comparison to Green Day of a decade ago.

    In less than 10 words, they're not that great if you're not into them (9).

    I'm trying to abstract myself from someone's point of view who's never heard "Karma police" or even "Creep", but unless you're into that stuff, there's nothing really there for you.

    It's like going to see bloc party, or massive attack. Someone's done the show better, but the music is there if you like it, which sweetens the deal.

    Daft Punk, on the other hand, made converts out of every single person I took with me to Coach last year. Anyone could have enjoyed that show, if you got close enough to see the lights.

    I'd like to see Metallica on this list. Best live act I've ever seen and these days their sets are about 135 minutes. That takes some energy to play that fast for that long, breaks or not.
