Some of their soungs sound good live (Silver And Cold/God Called In Sick Today/Days of the Pheonix) while others sound horrible live (Girl's Not Grey/The Leaving Song pt. 2/Miss Murder) so uh...they're okay live, I guess.

Took the words out of my fingertips.

NoFX is one of the worst live bands I've ever seen. I'd rather not have to sit through lame warm-ups, boring jokes, and them just being asses. If you've only got a small amount of time for a set, fucking use it.

I guess they are better live than blink-182...or in fact angels and airwaves.

I quite enjoy them live.

Saw them at warped just a week or two ago in fact. Sure they talk a little too much, but they still manage to get just as many songs in as all the other bands. They went half an hour over their time, but it was probably the most fun I had at a live show. Or it was close anyway.

I liked Blink-182's live stuff...A lot of their songs sound better live than on the albums.

see i saw them on their own, they had all the time in the world, they played The Decline, and it was actually entertaining, it was a great show. I dont think there was one person complaining as they were leaving the show. Fat Mike got pants, they did a really punked out version of Whoops I OD'ed. and they played alot of my favorite songs. Hefe covered that Bob Marley song No Woman No Cry, it was awsome, they did their version of Radio. my friend who's only seen them on Warped said that it was one of the best shows he's been to. so yeah if u dont like entertaining drunk men playing some really good shit live, then i guess the show wouldve sucked.

AFI? Saw them 3 years ago. I was really looking for that gig but oh my god, what a dissapointment. Davey's vocals were so terrible, the music sounded like crap as well and the show was too fucking gay.

Are you kidding? Blink 182 were awesome live! To me they sounded better live than on CD. Watch them at Big Day Out Sydney 2000. Amazing.
AFI is average live. A lot of their songs (black sails and art of drowning) use a lot of back up vocals. They lack back up vocals live. Their new cd doesn't have as much back ups, but they sound better in the studio that live.

Obviously you're majorly biased, so that doesnt count.

I'm not a fan, and I dont hate them either, I've seen a few live videos from them, and most recently on the MTV movie awards, they...pretty much sucked everytime, a few times the shows have been average at best, and other times just out and out bad, at best I would call them average live.
