Rolling Stone’s Top 25 Best Live Albums of All Time…


Lists seem to be all the rage these days so we thought it would be a good idea to post Rolling Stone’s Top 25 Best Live Albums of All Time. The list appears to be rather thorough, but we’re leaving the ultimate decision up to you. Let us know if they’ve left any major live albums off. Is there anything on the list that is maybe a lot overrated (cough cough Nirvana, cough cough Kiss)?
