DMB Poops On Chicago - 13 Years Ago Today

Has it been 13 years ago already? Time flies I guess.

    Re: DMB Poops On Chicago - 13 Years Ago Today

    Literally every year this pops up from someone in my Facebook feed or something with a link to some snarky article like 'DMB shits on Chicago (and not just with their music).' It bothers me so much that people around here basically associated DMB with nothing but this ridiculous story, without even mentioning the fact that DMB the band basically had nothing to do with it. A dumb bus driver did something incredibly stupid and now DMB is branded as the "band that shit on Chicago." So dumb.

    I think around here, we all know the true story. Outside of the fanbase, that might be another story though. Either way, enough time has passed to be able to laugh at it.

    Re: DMB Poops On Chicago - 13 Years Ago Today

    This reminds me of a conversation I had with one of my HS teachers about dmb

    I asked her if she's ever seen a dmb show and she was like "yeah the show was alright but it was not long after they dumped the waste in the Chicago river" "plus there was too much weed at the show"

    Before that conversation I actually never even heard of this situation.

    But yeah people haven't forget this after 13 years

    Oh for sure. I didn't mean around here but just in the eye of the general public. The way people frame it is like Dave and Carter themselves were sitting on the bridge intentionally dumping buckets of shit onto people below.

    It's especially bad here in Chicago where it has almost become part of folklore, and it just irritates me that if you mention DMB to a random person here, chances are the first thing they'll mention is the band "dumping shit in the river."

    It definitely seems like most people here in Chicago are aware of what happened as well as the connection to the band. I suppose that's fair since what happened was a pretty big deal and certainly something you don't see happen smack in the middle of an extremely busy portion of an enormous city.

    Living in Chicago, I haven't come into contact with very many people who don't like DMB for this reason though. Most of my friends were in college when this happened - so definitely during the years where they were discovering new bands and also when DMB was very very popular and rapidly gaining fans of my age group. The ones who never got into DMB have never mentioned to me that it was because of this incident. It's always because they didn't dig the music or because DMB was so popular that they felt it was "cool" to be anti (we all know the type).

    Have you had a different experience with the people you came into contact with where the bus incident kept them from getting to know and like the band?

    Not so much with that incident being the reason that someone didn't like them or didn't want to get into them, but moreso as simply another piece of "ammunition" for people who already hated the band for reasons entirely other than music for people to use to take shots at them or make fun of people who do like them.

    For example, last year at this time, Riot Fest's Facebook page posted a link to some snarky article about the "anniversary" and with the status of "A good time to remind everyone that Dave Matthews dumped shit on people" or something stupid like that. I commented on it that the article was misleading, that the band had nothing to do with it and it was just a bus driver, the guy was fired and the band donated a bunch of money to local charities, etc... Predictably, the thread was then immediately flooded with a bunch of people piling on, talking about how much the band sucks, making fun of me for "defending" them, and the admins on the Riot Fest page were joining right in.

    It just always irks me that the vast majority of people who claim to hate this band do so not because of their music, but because of some tired stereotype about what DMB and their fans represent, and this incident is like a microcosm of that.

    Gotcha. Very well said and makes perfect sense.

    People hate things that are/were popular. Haters gonna hate.

    Just took a look at the setlist. It's really bad. But beyond that, was there anything else that led to this being a terrible show?

    Mehh performances and I think Dave was under the weather for the show so he was not on his A game. Pretty sure he mentioned it during the show a few times too if Iím not mistaken. Canít believe that show was almost a decade ago now. Wow.

    It's still endlessly annoying to me that so many people on social media stupidly (probably willfully) act like this was some kind of choice the band made, and not the bus driver making a tragic executive decision without consulting anybody. They already wanted a reason to hate DMB, and that driver gave them something to point at. For eternity, apparently, because people are assholes.
