Comparing live vs official recording

I'd love to see live vs not live versions of your favourite music.

Here are some of mine.

Free Throw - Two Beers In. The crowd love this, and the intensity reaches almost scary levels.

Skegss - New York California. Skegss look like the kind of band I want to watch live and the audience look like they're having a blast.

Wet Leg - Chaise Longue. There are loads of live versions and it's hard to pick one, but I chose this because the audience is full of women and they're fully into the performance. Hester and Rhian make it look effortless, and I love that they give the appearance of not caring what people think.

Title Fight: Head in the Ceiling Fan. Way too loud in a small sweaty room seems like the best way to watch them live. Overwhelmed by a wall of noise. The closest I got to something like this was either Jesus and Mary Chain in 86, or Wedding Present a bit later, and they weren't really comparable. (Although, I have tinnitus and I do want to give them all decent ear plugs because wow tinnitus sucks).
