I don't ever remember seeing footage of a live Beach Boys concert other than just a short clip.
I have seen a few recent recordings of Brian Wilson, which good as they are only show how much he's faded (not the right word but it'll have to do) and makes me wonder what I missed.

I like most of the bands people mentioned here and indeed would like to see them live, but if i had to choose it would definitely be ACDC with Bon Scott.
By the way, whoever mentioned the Pixies, they've very recently reunited and went on tour, so you may have missed your chance, way to go. :)
Sounds good. I saw AC/DC a few years ago down here in Melbourne where they started. People here went nuts (although almost everyone there was 40+). My friends dad used to see them when they were playing pubs down here. Angus Young used to hop from table to table stealing people's beers. There's also a woman that lives down the road that used to date Bon Scott before they went really big.

Rage Against the Machine.
Alice in Chains and Soundgarden would be cool too.

Cool, I saw ACDC in New Jersey a while back, there were so many people and i was so far away i couldn't see much, but it sounded good. Personally i think Bon Scott was far better than Brian Johnson is even if i started liking ACDC with Brian, Bon's lyrics are so cool and funny and you can't beat Angus' riffs.

Man. I can't count the number of times I have been wasted at a pub and got up on stage with the band and screamed out an ACDC song. I used to have long hair and a hat like Brian Johnson wears, and I'd get up and do my best Angus air-guitar impersonation. Actually the last time was at a 21st a few weeks ago. But I got dreadlocks last week so it won't have the same effect anymore.

Another band i'd like to have been able to see is The Police in their earlier days (but in a small place so i can catch all the subtleties of the drums) the drummer is phenomenal and songs like "Bombs Away" and "Man in a Suitcase" would've sound really good in some small bar or something similar. Not to mention Stevie Ray Vaughn. My brother has SRV live at El Mocombo and it's possibly the best live performance i ever saw.
