"Streets" for other bands

I was watching the 360 DVD earlier and got to thinking about how rare a song like Streets is. It's an intensely emotional song that nearly everyone agrees should be in the set every night. It is part of the band's live identity and considered to be their quintessential live song by many.

So my question is, what are other band's "Streets?" The only one I can think of at the moment is Arcade Fire with "Wake Up."

"Born to Run"?

And isn't there a big thing with The Cure and "A Forest"?

If we're talking Arcade Fire, I'd think Power Out -> Rebellion is the emotional high point of the show.

Good question.

Born To Run is the best answer I can think of right now.

The other live band I know the most about is PJ, and in terms of songs that are part of the band's "live identity" you've got Even Flow, Alive, and Yellow Ledbetter. All three could fit the criteria. Even Flow is their most played live song by far, they play it every night. Alive on recent tours has become a huge, late set cathartic song for both Eddie and the audience. And Yellow Ledbetter has a big fan connection, as they almost always play it as the final song of the night, with the house lights up, and it ends with the band and the crowd staring at McCready alone on stage ripping some sick guitar solo.

I'll bet other big "jam bands" like Phish or Dave Matthews have signature live songs. Have no clue what they are, though, because I'm not much of a fan of either.

Just throwing some others out:

Dylan - Like A Rolling Stone (maybe, I'm not an expert on his set lists or live history, though)
Petty - Refugee
Flaming Lips - Do You Realize? (I don't know)

What would Radiohead's be? Paranoid Android? Everything In Its Right Place? Fake Plastic Trees? I don't know.

Nothing tops Streets, though, in terms of a band having that one seminal live song.

You know, I was close to saying Refugee (or American Girl).

I think the band rocks out a bit harder on Refugee, though.

The two times I saw Petty THE most memorable thing was "American Girl" in terms of crowd reaction and overall performance, just imo. Plus they up the ante with the lights on "AG"

Mr. November
Fix You (this is a joke, I have no idea what it would be for that band. Yellow or In My Place maybe.)

The signature live moment of Arctic Monkeys shows when they first got big was A Certain Romance. That shit brought down the house. And then...they just stopped playing it on their last tour.

I know they're a newer band, but when I saw them at Lolla and when I listened to their aftershow performance on the radio, Phoenix is pretty bit on the 1901.

For Oasis it had to be Don't Look Back In Anger. For Pearl Jam, I'd have to say Yellow Ledbetter. For Mute Math when I've seen them, it was Reset. Man, I really don't go to enough shows.

Flaming Lips' is actually Race For The Prize, I think. They tend to open with it, and that means Wayne in the bubble. Twas the highlight for me, anyway.

I just remember when a few of us were watching the live stream of the Almost Acoustic Christmas gig, Scumbo said something about, "Always end with A Forest" (which, I think I've told him before, has become an in-joke between some friends and I because he said that, so I went to bed and ended up missing the next five songs of the show )
