Dave Matthews Band is a talented band that took root in Charlottesville, Virginia during the early nineties. Known for astonishing live performances, the band grew a cult following as diverse as the members, themselves. Word first spread of the “tripping billies” from Virginia through bootleg live recordings and counter-counter music festivals in 92. Featuring a discography that expands on every emotion, the blend incorporates a mix of jazz, folk, and jam-band. Benefiting from classically educated musicians, the mind-expanding arrangements have inspired music majors and instructors alike. The setlist is changed every night, meaning the band has dozens of intricate songs on memory, allowing 4 day-weekend performances. Though the band’s personalities are charming, humble and inclusive, trendhumpers go out of their way to piss on these guys. For some, it’s an intolerance of all things masculine; for others, hatred is fueled by the stereotypes of DMB followers. One critique being how bland, stupid and generic the band is-for this crowd, two radio edits are enough to ignore the 50+ other gems. Don’t be surprised if the david bowie loyalist in the purple v-neck quotes pitchfork media as a means of establishing his or her supremacy over your twelve years as a school-instructed musician. When defending Dave, speak of how eco-friendly the band is and moved on-you were deemed bro from the start but planted a little dave seed, you may have.

A popular rock band the hit it big with their first album Under The Table And Dreaming in 1994. They have been a band since 1991. They formed in Charlottesville, Virginia when Dave Matthews searched around for potential band members. He found Carter Beauford, drummer; Steffan Lessard, bassist; LeRoi Moore, Sax; and Boyd Tinsley, Violin. There were some others that played with Dave, but those are the five official band members. Since then Dave Matthews Band has been nominated for 11 Grammys and won one. They currently have 6 studio albums.

Dave Matthews is a painfully generic band usually found on the music interests section of Facebook.com.

A very large band with not a lot of substance, named after an ego-maniac. No one ever knows when they have a new album out, they just appear. It's creepy. Responsible for Jack Johnson and to a lesser extent, John Meyer. (At least John Meyer has comedy to fall back on.) They should not be listened to, especially by young women in frat-guy rooms. It leads to bad things.

A truly talented band. People who are musically uneducated and narrow-minded tend to hate them. Many trash them without listening to their music. CD-recordings do them no justice, if you honestly want to hear all that is "DMB", attend a live concert. Carter, Leroi, and Boyd basically make the band, with Dave's voice topping the cake. Anyone that says they are talentless has no musical taste. There's a difference between not liking a band's music and thinking they suck.
"Yo, Dave Matthews Band SUCKS man! I have NO musical taste whatsoever!"

A band that is often rejected by many due to the stereotype of its fans, who are often douchebags in college. I personally enjoy their music; I find some (note some) of their works unique and original. Some of their songs are "Satellite" and "Warehouse."
