    Sorry for the off topic article but it breaks up the day from what I see to be the same old tripe being posted every second,

    Does anyone on here listen to the Dave Matthews Band, they're huge in America but relatively unknown here in the UK. If you do listen then whose your favourite member or hats your favourite song?

    For me the best member is Boyd Tinsley and the best song is 'Ants Marching' which I shall link below if you have not heard of them. :)

    WTF? DMB is horrible. They would good for a week in 1995. Being a DMB fan is a joke in the states nowadays.

    DMB are an amazing band - absolute genius!

    Too many excellent tunes to choose from! Crush, Grey Street, Grace is Gone, #41, American Baby, Dreamgirl, Two Step, Crash Into Me, Tripping Billies... the list is endless. Their 'Crash' album is a true classic.

    I'd heard of them from a lecturer who was like the John Peel of our music course but never checked them out properly after being showed one song of theirs in a lecture. Dunno what to make of them, but it intrigues me. Their sound is very Japanese pop-esque, were they ever big over there?

    I liked crash into me and when i was in the US everyone was raving about playing the Space Bewtween us, i got a couple of their albums a few years back found them a bit hit and miss, saw them live supporting the Boss at Hyde park calling a couple of years ago they were excellent musicians but didn't really get much response from the crowd, they did a fantastic 15 minute version of Stairway to Heaven for their finale.
    Would like to see them again in a smaller venue.

    They seem talented but not something I'd listen to. I can see why others might though <ok>

    yeh i think they had a big influence on jap culture they were HUGE over there way more than here, i disagree about the sound i think thier style is j-pop thier sound is melodic new wave. I dunno im no expert.

    It was clearly an exaggeration i know they used to be well known back in the 80s, but i havent met anyone in my age group who knows who they are. Its just a generalisation try not to read to much into it.
