Weekend Rock Question: What Is the Best Live Album in Rock History?

Cast your vote in our weekly poll

November 16, 2012 4:35 PM ET

This month, Led Zeppelin are finally releasing a live album of their 2007 reunion concert at London's 02 Arena. They may be one of the greatest live acts in rock history, but the only live album they released during their original run was the soundtrack to The Song Remains the Same.  They've since released How the West Was Won, which drew from two California shows in 1972, but a ridiculous amount of great live content still sits in the vault.

Most great live bands were more generous with their tapes. The Who gave their fans Live at Leeds, James Brown put out Live at the Apollo and the Allman Brothers released At Fillmore East. The list goes on and on.

Now we have a question for you: What is your single favorite live album of all time? It has to be something officially released by the band. No bootlegs. Please only vote once, and only for a single album.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
