karnal: Big Zappa fan - but Baby Snakes is not a great rock documentary....although the Bickford sequences are awesome.
mitchcumpstein: I fully agree with the number 1 pick. All the amazing guests on that stage that night and the sad fate of members of the Band shortly after that concert was filmed make it absolutely epic. And Robbie Robertson (and really everyone else) look like they've blown Tony Montana amounts of yayo that night.

timharrod: "The Concert for George" is an overlooked gem.Royal Albert Hall. a year to the day after George Harrison died.Eric Clapton. Billy Preston. Tom Petty. George's son.Then, out of nowhere, Monty Python.Then Ringo.Then Paul.Dust factory.
zez: Surprised Rolling Stone didn't pick any Rush videos
Demetrius: List doesn't fail because it contains "Stop Making Sense".
AirForceVet: Gimme Shelter is like a totally bad trip, especially when the fat, naked chick climbs on stage and later when the guy with the gun gets stabbed.
9beers: Lets Spend The Night Together needs to be on that list. The summer of 1983 was an awesome time.
rickythepenguin: Depeche Mode 101. I'm not a huge DM fan, but some of the live sequences are just amazing. Gahan has 100,000 people in the palm of his hand at the Rose Bowl. Freedie Mercuryesque charisma and perfformance. also, worth noting how while the "reality" genre had been bumping around since the 1960s, this is the first "modern" reality event i'm aware of; they put about a dozen DM fans in a bus, and filmed them interacting over the tour. MTV's "The Real World" didn't come out until 2-3 years later and that is often acknowledged as the start of reality tv but DM 101 predates all that.
Jake Havechek: Seeing Gahan get the WHOLE stadium crowd move their arms back and forth for Never Let Me Down always blows my mind. Being in the audience for 2 shows on the Violator tour was also a mind blow during that song.
darch: AhemActually, THIS.Radio GaGa, ftw.
Jake Havechek: New Order live in Finsbury Park
Glenford: zez: Surprised Rolling Stone didn't pick any Rush videosYou're right. It fails miserably without:[d.yimg.com image 300x300]
FirstNationalBastard: The Last Waltz sucked. It wasn't even The Band's best live recordings. All it was, was a Bunch of stoned performers going through the motions for a shiatty film that is now constantly fellated by hipsters because Scorsese directed it.
Ed Grubermann: Glenford: zez: Surprised Rolling Stone didn't pick any Rush videosYou're right. It fails miserably without:[d.yimg.com image 300x300]Oh, hell yeah! The sound was crap, but the feedback loop between the band and the audience was amazing.
