This week's traditional Wednesday Question saw you guys debating on the matter of the finest stage show in the rock genre. Rounding up your votes was as fun as always, check out the resulting list below.
A brief note before the Top 10 though - the vote was specifically about live shows, not about live bands, hence only concerts were included on the list.
10. Devin Townsend - 'The Retinal Circus'
Recorded in 2013 at the Roundhouse in London, UK, Hevy Devy's recent release gets to kick off the list. A special one-night-only show celebrating 20 years of Townsend's musical endeavors, the concert was definitely a special night for the versatile musician.
9. Rob Zombie - Rockstar Mayhem 2013
Mr. Rob always knows how to put on a great show, ranging from stage antics, effects and quality musicianship. For this week's list, check out Zombie's Rockstar Mayhem 2013 performance.
8. AC/DC - Live in Donington 1991
As you guys have pointed out, "The cannons, hell's bell, giant inflatable Rosie and inflatable Angus" turned AC/DC's Donington 1991 show into one of all-time classics.
7. Nine Inch Nails - Woodstock 1994
With "The Downward Spiral" just released, Trent Reznor and co. captured their power with an amazing Woodstock '94 performance.
6. Tool - Live in New Orleans 2010
It's hard not to mention Tool when discussing amazing concerts. The music, the vibe and atmosphere, top-notch musicianship, it's all there. Check out the band's New Orleans show from 2010 below.
5. Alice Cooper - Live in San Diego 1979
Captured during Alice's "Madhouse Rock" tour, the San Diego show from 1979 saw the shock rocker delivering that gory, horror rock vibe he helped pioneer and put on the map.
4. Muse - Live at Rome Olympic Stadium 2013
Getting us closer to the Top 3, Muse have dropped by with their last year's concert record from Rome.
3. Iron Maiden - 'Flight 666'
Based on your votes, any Maiden show is good enough to make the list. Therefore, check out "Flight 666," an epic DVD encompassing the first leg of 2008's "Somewhere Back in Time" world tour.
2. Rammstein - 'Live Aus Berlin'
If you're looking for a heavy rock show pumped up to the max, go and see Rammstein, it's really that simple.
