What's there to defend? They do that for themselves.  Look at their accolades.  I don't listen to them much anymore but I'm not gonna sit here and act like Sum 41 has had a greater tenure than DMB just because I too liked to spike my hair and be angsty around the house when I was 14.

I'm not judging you for liking DMB more than Sum 41, I'm judging you for thinking DMB is the most influential band of their generation.

Successful, not influential. They don't really influence anyone because no one can really replicate their sound. Nirvana was probably most influential.

Sum 41 used similar humor to blink 182 in their songs and videos. They were a bunch of goofballs. They weren't trying to be "edgy" at all.

They have a lot of songs with heavy metal influence, but that's a genre they all are fans of, and Dave their guitarist was talented enough to pull it off. 

It sounds like you just hate Deryck

Right, you didn't say they were the most influential (or the most successful, for that matter), you said they were the best band of our generation. Yikes.

You could argue it. In terms of overall, most success, talent level, longevity, hits, albums, live show, etc.

Numbers? So we're equating sales with quality now?

Being the #1 selling live show as not even a pop act has to account for something?

Better than you going off well, nothing.

I'm just being real here.  They have the best drummer of our generation, memorable instrumentalists (sax, violin, guitarist), have had major hits spread through their entire career, started from a small bar to the highest selling live show, charting #1 consistently all these years.  How are the likes of the rest of our bands doing? DMB is STILL dropping major hits 20 years later.

They're America's band for our generation if we're picking one whether you like them or not.  No one's sustained it as long.  Red Hot, Green Day, all became shells.  Nirvana only saw 3 big albums.  I was surprised when DMB was still coming out with hits, but credit to where it's due.

I don't know how you can even compare that resume to Sum 41.  Please try to.

Dude I only know like a handful of songs by DMB and they all sound the same (terrible). I'm not going to go outta my way to listen to any song by them. Dave's voice is terrible. They're the American version of Nickelback. That's a better comparison actually. Sum 41 is in the pop-punk arena.

Shania Twain has sold more albums than DMB. Is she better than them?

Funny story about "Self Esteem". I went to Top Golf on Rock n Roll night where you request your songs. I requested that song to Reggie. He said he had my back and he'd get it. 2 hours later it was never played. Next time I go back to top golf reggie is getting thrown off the top deck to his death.

Kind of hypocritical from a blink fan..Glad you're admitting it though.  There's some really good DMB tracks outside of the hits just like there's really good blink tracks outside of ATST and I Miss You.  Also very different.

But would you argue that she's the best artist of our generation?

No because of overall success, talent level, originality, longevity, hits, albums, live show, story, etc.  It's not album sales = ranking, but I think you know this, Patient.
