I mean actually on tour not as part of a festival/radio show.

For me some of the best were The Lunachicks and Vandals (95, I think).
The worst was some band called Ozomatli. I think this was the Americana Tour.

^ You not into psychobilly? I haven't seen the horrorpops live yet, but their albums are pretty solid.

Haven't really seen a bad band open for them, probably because i've only seen them once headline their own show, the other time was warped tour.

But Frank Turner is just outstanding liv e.

I saw them once at Summerfest last year, so I technically can't answer this question. But Time Again played right before The Offspring, i really didn't like them very much.
& AM Taxi played before Time Again, and they were AMAZING. (:

I'm going to ignore festival shows like Kroq's weenie roast because otherwise
"pennywise, bad religion, rise against + More" would obviously be the best.

As for their actual tours,
probably The Living End, mxpx, Pennywise
(hard to pick)

and the worst - Cypress Hill
(very easy to pick)

True, but they were all so happy to see Vanilla Sky play. I think the crowd sucked, not the band;)
