    Default Dave Matthews Band

    Do all coachellians hate DMB, or just a bunch? He may not have indie cred, but he's put out some of the best music in the last 10 years imho.

    Actually, I don't hate them that much to choose the first option, but considering the rest, the first one sounds tempting.

    Dave Matthews Band is and has been my most favorite band ever, since way before high school and middle school. It's perfect music, in my opinion.

    Though, I don't think they'd at all fit at Coachella.

    i used to like the Wallflowers, have a couple of their cds and there are a ton of bands/artists whom i wouldn't go see in concert or buy their cds but i enjoy a song or two.

    I'm not wishing they'd be at coachella. I know they fit in more at Bonnaroo or Vegoose...Just thought i'd throw it out there and see how overwhelmingly negative it would be.

    I saw them once. I probably will never again, even if they were at a festival that I was attending. Not that they were bad --- it's just not something I need to see again. Hopefully that is a good explanation.

    I saw them on the Crash Tour when I was 8. It was damn good, when I was 8. I listened to Crash again today, and it was a fantastically nostalgic album. I don't mind Dave Matthews, but I don't wanna hear his new music. It bores me now.

    False. False, false, false. His solo record was a heaping, steaming, colossal piece of shit. So bad. So so bad. Stand Up was nothing short of terrible. Everyday was killed by Glen Ballard, and Busted Stuff was a rehashed, watered down version of the Lillywhite Sessions, which were pretty awesome. DMB hasn't put out a solidly good album since Before These Crowded Streets, which happens to be their best, I think.

    I am missing them on this tour unfortunately, but I haven't missed them in like 7 years. I still would say that they are my favorite band, but I really don't listen to them much anymore.

    Under the Table and Dreaming is entertaining for me. This thread has sparked a nostalgia trip which means I'll be listening to a ton more Pavement soon.

    He and the band are super talented, just not my cup of tea. His voice really gets on my nerves. I get why so many people like DMB though...

    Before These Crowded Streets is still one of my favorite albums of all time. I was really into them before Stand Up came up. That album really turned me off of them. His solo album and the stuff he does with Tim Reynolds is great. I wouldn't mind seeing Dave Matthews & Friends at Coachella though not the band.

    Two Step is great live. When there isn't a 5 minute keyboard solo.

    We need a poll answer for "I just don't frickin' get it."

    I honestly can't figure out why their music would provoke any sort of passion, positive or negative. It's a bunch of technically excellent musicians performing limp 70's MOR pop. They are too good as musicians to hate and too damn boring to love.
