Live 105's team of experts have decided who the top five local bands are: MUD, Element 94, Cast of Thousands, Apside and Maldroid. Do you agree? What do you think of the top five and do you have any predictions?

If MySpace doesn't do it for you and you have to hear them live, then head over to Cafe du Nord, Monday night, for the final judging of all five bands. Five bands for five bucks. Not a bad deal!

SFist will be at "Not So Silent Night" deciding if Live 105 really did pick San Francisco's best.
