Well, at least we're in good company (with the likes of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen) and we beat out DMB (which I have a strong distaste for) but I would have expected a top 20 spot at least.

And for the record, surprisingly, the panel that picked these includes some legit peeps whose opinion on music I respect....

I saw that list... it was a typical Rolling Stone list... Arcade Fire at number 4? I mean, I know im out of the "whats new/hip" in music loop... but Arcade Fire was one spot ahead of Neil freaking Young!

Im not a huge DMB band either, but, DMB and PJ have a pretty faithful following of fans for their lives shows... they both should have been higher.

Have you seen Arcade Fire? And since what do the fans have to do with the quality of the performance?

I didnt agree with most of the list, but I havent seen half of those bands. I havent seen Arcade Fire live, but everyone I know who has says they are amazing. I also thought their description of Radiohead shows was spot on.

But Arcade Fire is new so they can't be as good as the older bands!

bands who put on bad live performances dont build the type of live following dmb and pearl jam has.

this list is terrible, even for rolling stone. both dmb and pearl jam should be in the top ten, probably in front of rage.

rarely played cuts like "Dancing Nancies"


do they even do research? thats one of their most popular live songs. its like saying dte is a rare pearl jam song.

It just means they were good for long enough to build a reputation.

I get what youre saying Cup, but its typical Rolling Stones "lets put a newer / up and coming band up high on the list to 1 - bring in the newer crowd to our magazine and 2 - piss off the old timers...

Its like putting a baseball/football player in his 2nd or 3rd year on a list of all time greats... ya gotta earn it

What to say?

Alabama Shakes? Really? I love Wilco and MMJ, seen them both lots of times and I'm sure they would both tell you they aren't better live than Pearl Jam.

Rolling Stone :shake:

Arcade Fire are incredible live. I can't believe the placement of Jack White on this list. I've never heard a single positive thing about his live show. I'm sure it's good most of the time but it kind of reeks of "we love the artist, so let's put him on this list".
