I've been to a lot of concerts over the years. Some good, some bad, some OMG AWESOME. Here are the top 5 concerts I've been to:

1. Rammstein - Air Canada Centre (Toronto, ON)
Words cannot accurately describe just how incredible this concert was. The band's stage presence was just out of this world, and all of the special effects, lighting and pyrotechnics made this concert outstanding. During "Feuer Frei!", the lead singer and both guitarists donned flamethrower masks. And yes, it was as awesome as it sounds. If you ever get the chance to see this band live, for the love of all that is good and holy, TAKE IT!

2. Alice Cooper - Copps Coliseum (Hamilton, ON)
This was actually the second time I had seen Alice Cooper. The first time I was really disappointed as there were no theatrics or anything that makes Alice Cooper Alice Cooper. However, for this show, he went all out with "vintage Cooper". From throwing around a mannequin during "Only Women Bleed", impaling a baby with a rail spike during "Billion Dollar Babies" and then hanging himself, it was truly a sight to behold. That night, he was opening for Heaven & Hell (aka, Dio Sabbath) but he was the star of the night.

3. Finntroll - The Opera House (Toronto, ON)
I love heavy metal. I especially love folk metal. So, this was bound to be a fun show for me. But what really made this show stand head and shoulders above most other shows I've been to was the crowd. Everyone at this show was extraordinarily happy, cheerful and friendly. I've never seen so many people smiling while headbanging or in the pit. At one point during their set, everyone just kind of linked arms and started dancing/headbanging with each other. It was one of those moments where you kind of step back and think "wow...this is really awesome right now".

4. Sloan - Fed Hall (Waterloo, ON)
This was another one of those "good show made great by a killer crowd" nights. Coming into the show, I actually didn't know too much about Sloan other than "Money City Maniacs". But that night, it didn't really matter. During every song, they got the crowd extremely into it and happy. One of the greatest moments I've experienced at a concert was during "Rest of My Life" as the entire crowd starts clapping and singing along for the entire song. That night, no one left the club without a smile on their face. Also, I did tequila shots with the band that night. That was pretty awesome.

5. GWAR - Elements (Kitchener, ON)
A GWAR concert is something that every heavy metal fan should experience at least once. I really can't accurately describe what happened that night. But, effigies of the Pope, Hitler, George W. Bush and Saddam Hussein were involved. Also, a lot of various coloured liquids spraying from said effigies. Naturally, this liquid/water/whatever got all over everything and everyone...which is why people wear a plain white shirt to a GWAR show. After leaving with my (now stained) shirt and body, I got a lot of weird looks at the gas station/convenience store.
