Some of music history’s greatest concerts are being shared on YouTube for the first time and you can enjoy them all for free.

YouTube announced a new partnership with the concert video collective Music Vault that brings more than 12,000 videos of history’s greatest and most memorable rock concerts to the video service. These aren’t just videos of recent concerts. We’re talking about the music industry’s most legendary performances and appearances that aren’t as easy to find such as the Rolling Stones’ 1981 show at the Hampton Coliseum in Virginia when a crazed fan jumped on the stage and almost got clocked in the head by Keith Richards’ guitar…

Of course, the true beauty of this partnership is that they’re able to bring you videos of shows that you never would have been able to see otherwise unless you actually attended the concert and made it out of the venue sober enough to retain the memory. Take, for instance, this legendary performance of Cold Shot by Stevie Ray Vaughn at the Capitol Theatre in 1985…

This new collection of concert videos also includes some hip-hop favorites such as The Roots crew’s memorable performance at Woodstock 1999…

And we just can’t resist ending with Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Free Bird from their 1977 concert at the Oakland Coliseum because we just know some of you smartasses out there are shouting “Do Free Bird!” Well, here it is so shut up about it already…

If you’re any kind of music fan, then this is just insanely great news. You can stop working on that time machine just so you could go back to 1987 and see Mick Jagger and Tina Turner do a duet of Brown Sugar.
