Happiness Is and Tidal Wave were as good as their initial releases imo. 

Tidal Wave kicks ass. I don't know why, but I was expecting that album to not be good for some reason. I fucking love it, this band is aging so well.

What is this Dave Mathews Band nonsense? Nobody outside of the US gives a flying fuck about them, most people have never heard about them. Might me the best band to rednecks with a pick-up truck, but they're so repetitive, they never made it across the border

Not a huge fan of sum41 but they headline festivals across the globe...

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.

Wait--how exactly am I hypocritical?

My old roommate used to play a live concert DVD in college I inevitably overheard. Dave Matthews seemed like a jerkoff and the music was about as bland and vanilla as you can get. Just like the Chili Peppers, you hear a song and then it blends in similarly to the next song.

Music, being subjective, means that all the DMB fans who go to shows and buy their music would obviously disagree with me. As you do.

Just like how a ton of people on this very message board went to bat against you for condemning Sum 41. Which is your right. And our right to counter. 

But you couldn't pay me to listen to DMB, even for the sake of our argument/disagreent here. Not sure if that means you "win" but then everyone's right, by your logic, Shania Twain is objectively better than DMB.

Jesus Christ I only said specifically U.S. five separate times. 

Least redneck band ever too, 4/5 members are black and write complex 8 minute songs.  You guys are 12.

"Dude I only know like a handful of songs by DMB and they all sound the same"

That implied, to me, that you only heard the singles. Which is hypocritical as a blink fan because we all had to deal with people only hearing ATST, First Date, WMAA, Miss You and calling it from there.  Personally, I don't like any of DMB older famous hits, much like I don't love Blink's.  The parallels don't stop there either.

Whoa, pause. I'm no Red Hot fanatic, and agree they can blend a lot, but you are basing a lot again off hits.. No way should anyone describe them as bland though.

I don't go to DMB shows lol, I just know the world doesn't revolve around 2000s pop punk even though blinks my favorite band.

Right, it is, but you might as well call it sum41fans.com with the amount of butthurtedness over it.

Shania Twain has album sales, I already said that's not what I'm all basing it off of.  You don't have to, but that's definitely songs I'd recommend that have nothing in similarity to Dave hits where he's singing and shit.

I'd say Shania Twain is better than DWB.

Also TBS haven't put out a shit album to date so there's that. 

That’s your opinion. I think every song and every album is garbage. I can’t stand the emo bands. There is nothing punk rock about TBS. horrible horrible cringe band is what they are to me and other non emo people across the globe.

I was going to say I’m shocked with the amount of ignorance on this site, but I guess I shouldn’t be. I’m not a DMB fan, but their fans aren’t really the rednecks in pickup trucks type, lol. Quite the opposite. It’s more for the hippy crowd. A dude I worked with in college was a massive DMB fan, and was a cool dude. Down to earth, nice to everybody, worked hard, and we smoked a lot of pot. He is about as far away from your judgement as possible. At least know what you’re talking about before you start prejudging people out of your ass.
