Blackbelt's Top 20 Live

My top 20 live acts thus far, assume I've seen them once unless it says rotherwise. Albums are my favorite albums by each artist
20All Pigs Must Die
God is War


I haven't really listened to this band much but they ruled live, I should start listening to them more! Crowd was drunk and angry but the band still ruled.
19Less than Jake
Hello Rockview


Good ska bands are really fun live, this band is no exception, plenty of skanking going on.
18Modest Mouse
The Lonesome Crowded West


I was a bit disappointed with this show because the crowd wasn't into it at all and they didn't play much old stuff, but they still ruled.
17We Are the U nion
Who We Are


Saw them open for the Wonder Years, so I was the only one there that listened to them, but they were great. I left before TWY even came on (I've seen them twice already and I'm not a huge fan).
16Full of Hell
Roots Of Earth Are Consuming My Home


Very angry hardcore band. They have a lot of energy, the vocalist really goes wild.
15Code Orange Kids
Cycles


Saw them with Full of Hell. One of the most pissed off bands I've ever seen; the drummer played the last part of the last song by punching the drums since he broke his drumsticks.
14OFF!
First Four EPs


Keith Morris was a diva to the sound guy but these guys slayed, up the punx.
13Big D and the Kids Table
Strictly Rude


(3) Say what you want about this band, but they were the first ska band I ever listened to and they are really fun live, Dave is a great performer.
12The Hold Steady
Boys and Girls in America


They were really great, but I saw them the day after ATDI, which was impossible to top. Craig Finn has a weird stage prescence, always smiling and pointing and stuff, but they were awesome.
11The Men
Leave Home


They have a ton of energy. Their heavier songs sound great live, too. I even saw Patrick Stickles almost get in a fight with someone while these guys were playing!
10Larry and His Flask
EP


(2) Saw these guys open for DKM once, and were as good as them. They're insane live, their bassist plays an upright bass but still moves around like a madman. This band is just a blast live.
9Dropkick Murphys
Going Out in Style


(2) These guys put on a fun live set, they always have. I mean, it's Celtic punk, how could it not be fun? Seeing these guys for the first time also got me more into punk in general.
8The Menzingers
Chamberlain Waits


I saw these guys at this small bar and there were only like 15-20 people in the crowd, but they put one a great show. They have a great stage presence, and are a ton of fun.
7Against Me!
Reinventing Axl Rose


AM! is amazing live. I don't like their music after SFAFC very much, but even their newer songs sound great live. They were energetic, emotional, and they even played most of my favorite songs off their older albums.
6Frank Turner
Love, Ire & Song


He's great live. He has a ton of energy, even in his slower songs, and it's great to shout along with him and the rest of the crowd.
5And So I Watch You From Afar
Gangs


I had never even listened to this band before I saw them (it was at a festival) and wow, they blew me away. One of the most energetic, cathartic sets I've ever seen. Wow.
4Titus Andronicus
The Monitor


(2) This is pretty much interchangeable with 3 and 2. Screaming to their lyrics and jumping around like an idiot is really fun. They have a lot of emotion in their performances.
3At the Drive-In
Relationship of Command


I got to see ATDI live. It was surreal. I went to one of the reunion shows recently, and they played pretty much all my favorite songs. Omar just stood around the whole time, but Cedric did his normal antics. The show was extremely crowded, everyone was pushing to get closer to the stage. I didn't get a ticket to this since it sold out so fast but my friend happened to check out the event on his phone and was able to get me a ticket.
2Bomb the Music Industry!
Scrambles


(2) This is the most fun live act around. They never come to my town, so when they did, everyone went nuts. They have tons of energy, and the whole show is just a big party of shouting lyrics, skanking, moshing, and stagediving.
1Streetlight Manifesto
Everything Goes Numb


SM is probably my favorite band, and they are great live. They are energetic, and also very technically skilled. The horns sound great live, and their show was both fun and emotional.
