    ROLLING STONE: 50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now
    August 01, 2013

    Green Day have eleven albums under their belt, and they walk onstage each night prepared to play practically any track from that deep catalog. They also aren't afraid of arena rock bombast, embracing pyro, confetti cannons and classic rock covers like "Highway to Hell."

    Showstopper: Billie Joe Armstrong brings a fan onstage every night to play guitar on "Longview." Even when they can't play a note it's still an absolute riot.

Have to agree with them being too far down on the list, but out of all the bands in the world, making the list is still an honour.  I put them right up there with the Stones and McCartney and I have seen all of them live.   And Bruce Springsteen at number one?? I have heard he puts on a good show but YIKES!!
