It's snobbery minus knowledge. I guess that's pretty imaginative.
LOL. You've just given me my new signature.

If I had a time machine Id go back in time and start a band that would play all my favorite songs five years before they were released, wed be more popular than the Beatles.

As far as who I'd See?

The Velvet Underground
The Sonics
Jimi Hendrix
The Doors (That show in Miami where Jim exposes himself)
Jonathan Richman (When hed perform onstage with a guitar with two strings, while everyone assumed he was retarted)

The Modern Lovers (The first Incarnation, where Richman would often recite poetry and cry before tearing into 'Roadrunner')
NY Dolls
Sex Pistols (That show that Mark E Smith, Joy Division, Howard Devoto, and the rest of the future punk/post-punk legends caught)
The Germs
Dead Kennedys
Joy Division

Husker Du
Sonic Youth
Jesus & Mary Chain
Mission of Burma
The Dogmatics
The Vaselines
Happy Mondays
New Order

My Bloody Valentine
Pavement (Wowee Zowee era, the last moment in time when they would have no bad songs in their repetoire)
Neutral Milk Hotel (That san fransisco show where they open with 'sailing through')
Olivia Tremor Control (Black Foliage era)
Guided By Voices

Bands from the 00's I REALLY want to see:
Art Brut
Animal Collective (I could go the 20th, but I have court, not seeing animal collective is a far worse punishment than any the judge could give me)
Grizzly Bear
LCD Soundsystem

Bands Ive already seen that I get to brag about when I meet people in 20 years that want a time machine:

King Khan
of Montreal
No Age
Vivian Girls
These is the musics I own:

May 7th, 1824 in the Karntnertortheather in Vienna. Premier of Beethoven's 9th Symphony, conducted (in a sense) by the man himself. Would be great to clarify some of the rumours of this performance.

I would go back and see as many classical pianists as I could to see how the styles differ. I would especially like to see Beethoven perform some of his piano sonatas.

I would also like to go to a bar where some of the jazz greats were first starting out like Miles Davis, Coltrane, Monk.

And this of course...

Me being bored I dug through the older pages and found this, good thread.

I would see them under any circumstances, if I had to camp out for tickets for a month I'd do it. I would prefer to see them at a dingy club in 1990, maybe the Off Ramp Cafe in Seatle, right before they hit it big. I can't imagine what talking to Kurt or Krist would be like.

Alice In Chains
(With Staley)
Just to hear Staley's voice live would be the greatest thing ever. Preferably Unplugged, due to the fact I think it was their best live performance. But going to a huge AiC concert with good seats would also be an honor.

Operation Ivy
If I had to chose one punk show to go to, I'd decide on these guys in a heart beat. Seeing Jeese Michaels in action would be insane.

I can't imagine how much fun going to a Sublime gig would be. I'd like to go during their 40 oz to freedom days, probably some pavilion somewere in Long Beach California.

The Beatles- Because, they, were like, The Beatles
Queen- Freddy Mercury live was a spectacular act
The Grateful Dead- A lot of people hate them but I still love em

There's a few of my obvious picks
