Crash (song)

It really is the ultimate DMB song and what they will be remembered for. The studio version is blissful and perfect, it's definitely the best thing they've ever or ever will do I think.


It's cliche for a reason.

    Love it. Needs more plays. I’m sure many would disagree, however it is really awesome musically and lyrically imo. I’m sure Dave is tired of playing it, but it’s a travesty that you and me (and many other songs) is played more than Crash

    All I'm really trying to say is, it's their most popular song to the mainstream audience. It's what I think they will be remembered for.

    I'd say it's Ants but either way Crash is great and to me one of their best written songs when it comes to building energy, song just takes off

    Love Crash. It's in the Mount Rushmore of DMB songs.

    For the record my Mount Rushmore:

    Crash (big pop hit)
    #41 (jam)
    Two Step (Closer/energy)
    Ants (band anthem)

    Re: Crash (song)

    Lyrics are pretty damn cringey. If “hike up your skirt a little more and show your world to me” was in a song that Dave wrote today, it’d be torn apart. But it’s a 90s classic, so, somehow it’s a poetic masterpiece.


    It’s really only that though. I guess most of the lyrics are fine enough.

    You ask your average guitarist to play a DMB song, and I'd put my money on it being Crash.

    You're dropping context though. Think of the poetry those lyrics are embedded within, it works nicely I think.

    I loved it in the 90's and got a really bad taste in my mouth in the early 2000's when I saw a lot of shows and heard it too much.

    However, in my older age I have fallen back in love with it. The best thing I ever did was stop doing entire west coast tours (it makes you start to except things from the band), absence makes the heart grow founder, and I am over the moon that this band is still killing it for us all.

    This will be my 23rd year going to the Gorge, see you all in 3 sleeps!

    I think it's the best thing the band has done in the studio, and Supported the best full band live thing, but D+T are always great.
