The Most Rocking "Rocking..."?

Pearl Jam performs many covers during their lengthy live sets, and Neil Young's "Rocking In The Free World" has been a staple since they formed back in the early 90s. Clearly, the song means a lot to the band and they love playing it - they've done so 188 different times thus far. I thought I'd take a look at some performances of "Rocking In The Free World" over the span of Pearl Jam's career to see if there was one that stood out from all the rest.
