10. 'Live on Two Legs' 

Without a doubt, Pearl Jam are one of the best live bands to emerge in the past 25 years. But for some reason, it took them over eight years to release a proper live album. Thankfully, Live on Two Legs was worth the wait. The 16-track album draws from the band's 1998 summer and fall tour, which was their first outing with new drummer Matt Cameron. The set wisely skips obvious hits like "Jeremy" and "Alive" in favor of deep cuts like "MFC" and "Off He Goes." Nearly every song on here is superior to its studio version. The only flaw is that it's only a single disc and doesn't capture the scope of a single great concert. The band must have been happy with the results, though: two years later, they began releasing live albums from every single concert on their tours.
