Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

Been a fan for a long time, been to about 5 shows (all during the "big 3" era), and been lurking this site for a long time. In regards to the band I have a ton of respect for the opinions and knowledge of this community.

I thought this would be a good idea that could spark some new debate. I'll start...


I like Stolen Away. Could never really understand all the hate it gets around here. I'll be honest, I'm no musician, and know very little about the technical side to it...is it a poorly crafted song from a musical perspective or something?

Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

-Lying in the Hands of God should always be 15 minutes long.
-The band misses Butch as an accompanist.
-Adding to Butch, I loves his solos on Bartender, Lie In Our Graves and Two Step

This (especially re: Butch + LIOG), and adding to it:
-Dive In is a good song, and the extended jam they did a few times was awesome.
-Same with Beachball.

I can get onboard with the bolded above.

My unpopular opinion is my strong hatred/dislike for #41. Next song please...

I like the tune, but I've been getting it at pretty much every show I've been to since about 2010. I'm at the point now where as soon as it starts, I take it as an opportunity to use the can and catch the jam towards the end.

Yes! If I need to use the bathroom even in the slightest, I go right at the beginning of #41. The crowds are usually rushing back to their seats and you can stroll right in to a bathroom.

Yep, different strokes for different folks. I used to enjoy #41 a lot, but it's just not the same anymore. Hard for me to explain. It's just bland in my opinion.

Sure am Born and raised in Buffalo, New York. Moved to San Diego in early 2013 and now reside in Santa Barbara, CA.

GoSabres!

I'd change my name to DSims3 to match my Twitter if I could, but Ants won't allow it

You and me both I grew up with season tickets living in East Aurora and now live in Raleigh, NC. My two passions, DMB and the Sabres, gotta love it

unfortunately most the community now days resemble the lack of class, feelings, compassion, intelligence, money, pussy, similar to those that cheered when the chiefs QB was knocked out of the game, and those idiots that littered the braves field with beer bottles and what not..... so many haters and not enough lovers anymore.... its sad. so sad. why cant we just talk it over? its getting more and more absurd......(elton)
