stupid, as in stupid to pay money to see them or stupid as in unoriginal?

because, even if my favorite bands played the same way live as on record, i'd still want to support them. by buying tickets to see them live.

It sure beats seeing a band that sounds good recorded and completely sucks balls live.

Besides, most people want to hear the songs played live as they are on the record. It's a little alienating when a band is playing your favorite song, you're singing along, and they totally start doing something random.

Personally, I like live shows both ways, but it depends on the band.

If there's live energy there and it sounds good, I couldn't give a shit.

Any post-1995 boy-or-girl-band miming to the backing track.

Maybe if Tom Morello didn't keep making up the same he-man riff over and over again, this wouldn't happen.

Rage Against the Machine. Morello can do things with a guitar that no one else I have heard can... so what if he doesn't improv that much.

I'm not talking about improv, I'm talking about lack of variety to such a degree that it ends up being non-effective.
