If you had the chance to go back in time, or to see any band you want to live. Be them dead/alive/separated/together. What would it be and why?

Led Zep

I have a feeling there would be a lot of really appealing gals there.

Definitely, but id have go see pink floyd.

Specifically when they played the wall on small stages, actually setting up a brick wall and tearing it down as it goes by. It just seems like an amazing stage show.

Fuck. Hard one. Probably have to go with the classics though. Minor Threat or Danzig era Misfits.

One of these shows to be precise.

Misfits - Rise Above(Black Flag cover) Live In Boston - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cHpQbNFpf0)

Minor Threat - Live at Washington DCs 930 Club in June of 1983 (Part 1) - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cu0-XGk6C2Y)

You wanna travel in time to the Malibu show don't you. That's the show where he allegedly exposed his cock.

The One Who Once Was

This one is too tough to answer specifically. Such a hard question, there have been so many great bands over the years. I can't say one specific band, but I would have to say I would pick one of the eras where music had a very revolutionary voice. A time when the bands and the music they played voiced a very open opinion and agenda. I may lead towards more of a punk scene in the late 70s/early 80s than the hippie era though.

But, in those times, music was such a uniting force. It brought all sorts of people together and it really had a magic to it. It completely captivated people and the show became something truly special. A time to escape the daily life grind and propel into some idealistic mindset.

Maybe one of the great punk bands in the initial punk movement. Or a hippie festival during the Summer of Love (probably not, hippies really gross me out).

I've seen them live, it was a great show actually.

I'd like to see ozzy sabbath, the beatles would be cool or be at altamont for the stones and witness the fuckery. Any festival in the late 1960's or 1970's would be amazing actually.

for everyone saying hte Beatles--they were never loud enough and you couldn't hear them over thousands of girls screaming. IT would probably suck despite the fact that the Beatles rule. Unless we're crafting a fictional scenario without the screaming girls

Dear lord do I hate screaming girls...

really wanna say Neutral Milk Hotel right after they released ITAOTS, but seeing the Velvet Underground would be great too and carry more significance (

I mean, it makes sense to travel further back, right? Plenty of people only 10 or so years older than me have seen NMH live, and I've seen Jeff solo. so probably the velvets

Yea, having seen Mangum, my desire to see NMH has been appeased for the most part.

I think if I saw the Minutemen I could die happy. Or maybe the Replacments. Once incredibly drunk, the other only moderately.

13 Songs and Repeater are probably the best albums to start with. In on the Kill Taker is rad as well if you like a harder sound, Steady Diet of Nothing and The Argument are both amazing as well if you're more into a more controlled and quieter sound they do. Red Medicine is perfect if you're into noise rock style stuff, and End Hits is somewhere in between everything else. Either way, I love it all. It's a lot to take in since every album they have is completely different, but they are a band I have listened to for years and I will never get tired of.

For sure. There's so much in that Dischord scene back then that deserves so much more recognition, especially bands like Gray Matter, Dag Nasty, 3, Marginal Man and bands that manipulated those ideas into the '90s alongside Fugazi like Jawbox and Autoclave. My record collection actually has a dedicated Dischord section, that's how much I love that whole scene.
