Music Monday: 50 Bands I Have Seen Live

I stole this from an amazing friend of mine! Thanks Krystal
OK, here are the rules. Test your memory and your love of live music by listing 50 artists or bands (or as many as you can remember) you've seen in concert. List the first 50 acts that come into your head. An act you saw at a festival and opening acts count, but only if you can't think of 50 other artists. Oh, and list the first concert you ever saw (you can remember that, can’t you)?

1. Blink 182 (My first concert & the band I have seen the most (6 times I think). I absolutely love them! Mark Hoppus is wonderful)
2. Rise Against (My current favorite band. I have seen them twice and they are amazing live)
3. Jimmy Eat World (I've seen them at least 4 times. Another of my favorites.)
4. 30 Seconds to Mars (Definitely one of the top 2 bands live . Jared Leto knows how to put on an amazing show. I see them for the 2nd time next month!)
5. All American Rejects (I saw them 1/2 a concert and they were amazing. I hope to see them again soon)
6. New Found Glory (I love punk and they are one of my old school favorites. Seen them about 4 times)
7. Ludo (another of my favorite bands. I have seen them twice)
8. Lucky Boys Confusion (3 times...RIP)
9. Hoobastank (saw them twice in one night and got to meet them..for free! Awesome!)
10. Sum 41 (3 times)
11. Framing Hanley 
12. Good Charlotte
13. Foo Fighters (I have only seen them once, but they put on a kick @ss show!)
14. Disturbed (4 times and I love them. Yes, I like some heavier music too)
15. Korn
16. Sister Hazel
17. Eve 6
18. Nelly Furtado
19. Against Me!
20. Chevelle (I really want to see them again. They are really good live too.)
21. Anberlin (Local boys that have become popular! I adore them.)
22. Cage the Elephant (from my home state: KY)
23. Panic at the Disco (kind of disappointing...)
24. Alien Ant Farm
25. Lit
26. Adema
27. Something Corporate (RIP...I absolutely LOVE this band.)
28. Unwritten Law

32. Three Doors Down
33. Everclear
34. Rancid
35. 311
36. Billy Talent
37. Blindside
38. Metric
39. Manchester Orchestra (total letdown!)
40. Say Anything
41. Fenix TX
42. Fall Out Boy (R.I.P.)
43. Bad Religion

Yay!! I would *love* to take my boy to see Rancid one day. The Ataris... oh... gotta love them. They are still touring and will be at Orpheum in April. It's a Tuesday so odds are slim that you can go, huh? I'm probably going to head there after work!
