Dvd's That Changed My Opinion Of A Band

Here's a look at some musical DVD's i've seen that rhave rchanged my perspective on different bands. reither in a good rway or a bad way.
1Coheed and Cambria - Neverender

Neverender. Never did I think i'd enjoy this DVD, previously dismissing Coheed and Cambria as some lame Mars Volta ripoff. Not now. One minute into The Willing Well iv I was hooked. And it just got better, Chris Pennie's drum solo, Travis's talkbox solo, the crowd, the setlist. Just a wicked DVD.
2Sigur Ros - Heima

I was just growing out of a punk and metal phase when I first heard Sigur Ros and didn't know what to think. So I dismissed it as some weird alien shit, like Bjork and E.T. Then fast forward a year and I saw Heima on TV and was blown away. Everything made sense..the music, the natural beauty, the band themselves ET, Paul, Roger and Alf ;)
3Porcupine Tree - Anesthetize

The difference between this and the Arriving Somewhere DVD is like chalk and cheese. The editing on the the Arriving somewhere DVD was so bad, it put me off the band big time. So what made me take a leap of faith and buy Anesthetize? I can't rightly say, but im glad I did. One of the most engaging DVD's i've seen, setlist is amazing but no Chloroform!? no Porcupine Tree DVD is ever going to be complete without that song
4Guns N Roses - Live

Any time I want to remind myself why this band sucks, I remember this steaming pile. I was never a big fan, but admittedly I did like Slash as a guitarist. Then Axl Rose opened his mouth..
5Pain of Salvation - BE

My hopes for POS playing a standard live show were blown apart by this pretensious, if albeit accurate live show which is as polarizing as the album. But i'm a big fan of their previous four albums.
6Meshuggah - Alive

Simply, my respect for Meshuggah went up several notches after seeing this live DVD. I mean, I was probably a casual fan of the band before, but after seeing this I was absolutely blown away, and converted.
7Pink Floyd - PULSE

Being too young to having grown up in the Floyd era, my love for Pink Floyd extended about as far as three songs. I found the music distant, and very hard to put a picture in my head to. After seeing Pulse, especially Comfortably Numb, it all clicked for me.
8It Might Get Loud

Ok so not a live DVD per se, but a live documentary following 3 musicians - the immortal Jimmy Page, ummmm, ahem, the Edge from U2 and ummmmm Jack White? Sorry, who? Where the fuck is David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Ritchie Blackmore, Tommy Iiomi? Why is Jimmy Page jamming with these guys? Granted, Jack White is carving his own niche. But The Edge??
9Depeche Mode - Touring the Angel

Funnily enough my first memory of Depeche Mode was through hearing Marilyn Manson's cover of Personal Jesus. I listened to the original Depeche Mode version, and I hated it. I was so dissapointed. Then I saw Enjoy the Silence on this DVD and my perspective changed forever. Violator is one of my top 5 albums.
10The Gathering - A sound Relief

A personal favourite of mine and I own a few. And it all came about by accident. I actually ordered an Evergrey DVD on ebay and this one got shipped instead. I decided to put it on before I sent it back, but by the time I got to the song Travel i was always keeping this.
