The whole point of practicing is to make sure that your learning the music correctly, if your band mates are too busy worrying about their David Lee Roth kicks or their Kip Winger ballet moves how can they worry about what they are playing?

true, but if you intend to do moves and stuff on stage as well you need to practice them while your actually playing the songs as well

I do, and proud of it. It's good to releive stress after a hard session, and I feel that it's better to look like a wang and put on a good show than play accurately live, people are there to have a good time. Not saying that you should'nt play well, but the majority of your audience probably don't care if you hit a couple of bum notes as long as they're having fun.

You have to be able to play it when you move around, so it is probably a good idea to practice it a couple times while rocking out.

exactly I know that I can play my songs perfectly standing still but I just can't stand there so ya i headbang because it comes natural with the music and when I'm in front of 500+ people it's just as natural only I have more energy with a crowd like that

We run through songs a few times just playing to make sure we don't confuse our hands and shit, and then we just rock it.

yes we do, it makes things more fun and enjoyable. we do however make sure we pretty much have our parts down before we do the rocking out, otherwise there's almost no point in playing in a band, it'd be more jamming.

I don't consider a song completed until I've rocked out while playing it.

You need to to some point. You don't want to go up on stage looking stale or anything like that. make sure you have the song down, then go crazy with everything.
