Orange Crush by REM, live in Seattle 1989 on the Everybody Hurts CD maxi single.
The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again from the Concert for New York City, followed closely behind by Baba O'Riley and Behind Blue Eyes from the same concert. Who's Next is one of the all time great rock albums, but all three live performances outdo the studio versions. (Won't Get Fooled Again gets my vote for our new National Anthem.)
The performances are incredible. But what raises these performances -- just six weeks after 9/11 -- to transcendence is the emotion of the crowd, particularly the policemen, firemen, and surviving loved ones in the front rows. If you can keep tears out of your eyes during Behind Blue Eyes, while the first responders hold up pictures of their lost comrades, you are made of sterner stuff than I am.
And John Entwistle only had eight months left to live. Watch those fingers fly and remove all doubt concerning who was the greatest rock bassist of all time. Keith Moon must have been smiling somewhere to watch his Godson Zac Starkey pound those drums.

I Fought the Law, Clash wins but the six gun chicks in the original make it close//
"I Fought the Law" is a much-covered song originally recorded by Sonny Curtis and The Crickets (post Buddy Holly) in 1959. The song was famously covered by Bobby Fuller Four, who recorded a more successful version of the song in 1965, and by The Clash, who performed and recorded a punk rock version in 1976 and 1977.
Just as the song became a top ten hit, Bobby Fuller was found dead in a parked automobile near his Los Angeles, California home. The police considered the death an apparent suicide; however, many people[who?]still believe Fuller was murdered.
The Dead Kennedys, in particular, wrote and recorded a different version as a comment on Dan White's 1978 murder of San Francisco mayor George Moscone and City Supervisor Harvey Milk, and White's subsequent use of the "Twinkie defense" to influence the court to convict him of the lesser charge of manslaughter. The song, sung from White's perspective, replaced the line "I fought the law and the law won" with "I fought the law and I won".
In 1989 during Operation Just Cause, when the U.S. Army had Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega confined to the Papal Nunciature, the Vatican's Embassy, and were attempting to flush him out. US ARMY PSYOPS Units surrounded the compound and used several psychological tactics including flood lights and loud speakers. They played music like "I Fought the Law" loudly and repeatedly from the loudspeakers. The Bobby Fuller Four version of this song is ranked #175 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
It was the existence of a 45 of the Bobby Fuller version in an American studio jukebox that inspired The Clash to record a cover version of the song in 1978. Their version first appeared on the EP The Cost of Living in May 1979 in the UK, and then later in 1979 was made part of the American edition of the Clash's eponymous album. This cover version helped gain The Clash their first taste of airplay in the States and is one of the best-known cover versions of the song. The live recording of the song, performed at the Lyceum Theatre, West End, London on December 28, 1978, features as the last piece of the 1980 film Rude Boy directed by Jack Hazan and David Mingay. The Clash were dressed all in black for that gig and the song, at that stage, was considered the film's title song. In 1988, CBS Records re-issued the single (catalog number) in 7" vinyl format, with "City of the Dead" (2:24) and "1977" (1:40) as its B-side. The song is featured as a downloadable track in the music video game series Rock Band. [info courtesy: wikipedia.org]
Very good sound quality
Huge post. +1
Love the original, but this Roger Waters/Paul Carrack version in Berlin takes it.

OK...I actually saw this on TV when it was live and, I agree, it was AWESOME--especially after 9/11. But "Who's Next" is my favorite album/CD of all time. And "Won't Get Fooled Again" is my favorite song of all time. The studio version is one of the greatest rock 'n roll songs of all time. As good as The Who was, I can't even imagine that any live version competes with the studio version--and even I think that "Live at Leeds" is one of the greatest live albums of all time.
No question, I'm biased. But anytime I get to listen to "Won't Get Fooled Again" is never a waste of time. +1.

I couldn't agree more. Live Bullet is the best Live album ever.
"Sweet Jane"- Lou Reed- Rock and Roll Animal
"Hey!! Gimme one of those hats!"
And another piece of the puzzle falls into place.
Easily, "Football on Your Phone" by The Manning Brothers.
