If you own the DVD, torrent it, which won't be hard with google, or... just buy it.

Acoustic Wheels
Cold Day In The Sun
And if I'm in the right mood, I like the Skin And Bones version of Times Like These

Gotta agree with Cold Day in the Sun, that song is just so much better live. Especially T in the Park '05 with Tay on guitar and Dave on drums

3 minute long live version of 'Come Back' before they made it in to a different song. Lots of power.

I always think that live versions of Breakout are always better than the studio version. Hyde Park is particuarly good.

It's weird how the studio versions of songs become the definitive versions people know, and the hit singles get played and replayed and are what people hear and think of when they think of that song. Like Zep's Stairway to Heaven, or the Police's Every Breath You Take. Overplayed, yet they've kinda become the song as we know it, yet those tow bands have made those songs into something better and more emotional in concert. That why I love shows. The idea that a song you know and love could be made even better by an inspired performance that can blow you away is why we go see our favorite band live.
The Foos studio versions are a one time pieced together song, made from separate tracks and overdubs into a whole. That is why Dave and the guys can't always improve on it live, or even do it justice. Especially when Dave harmonizes with himself on big choruses. And yet since these songs are mostly recorded right after being written and not performed live until the tour it gives the band a chance to improve upon them and make them even better.

I'm not a fan of Breakout, one of my least favourite songs, but it's probably better live yes.

^^There are programs that do that.

I like the live Cold Day in the Sun much better than the studio. And Have it All on the EBH DVD. Most live versions sound better than studio versions to me.

The live version of 'Have It All' from the Mean Fiddler gig in 2003 slays the studio version (which I also really like).

I have a live version of Hey, Johnny Park that's slowed down during the verses that is absolutely divine.

I love the guitars in it. Much more ringing and joyful, IMHO.
