Rock always sounds great on record, but everyone knows its real home is on the stage.
Seeing a band you love perform live is one of life's great pleasures, and it's even better when you catch a performance that ends up in the history books.
Nirvana's unplugged MTV performance? Queen at Live Aid? The Sex Pistols' influential Manchester show? They're all events that have gone down in the history books as their most iconic live moments.
So this week we're calling upon the UG hive mind to answer the following question:
What are the most iconic live shows ever?
Make your nominations in the comments, and remember to up vote comments that you agree with. We'll stack up your votes and round them up in an epic top 10 list this Friday.
Remember that we'll need to find a clip of each show on YouTube, so voting for your cousin's band and their first show aged 14 where there was no camera man won't work.
We'll only include one performance from each band too, so if a band has been nominated twice, we'll have to opt for the one with the most votes.
With your help, we'll end up with the most authoritative top 10 live shows ever. It'll be a perfect video playlist to watch over the weekend!
