I'm gonna play music geek for a minute, but Wilco is one of my favorite bands for various reasons. This video shows a few things: first, Nels Cline is a ridiculously good and imaginative guitar player. Second, the band likes to be creative. Notice that John Stirratt's bass cabinet is laying on it's side, which has got to produce a hugely resonant sound. Third, when you combine Fender, Gibson, Marshall, and Vox, the sound is divine (this is so obvious it barely even bears mentioning, but I'm mentioning it anyway). This video is basically proof that Wilco is probably the best band in America (and would maybe be the best in the world, if not for those pesky Radiohead guys):
