Agreed here....and why was this song on an officially released album. It really takes the B out of DMB. Which would probably be okay if it were good (im lookin at you baby blue)

    No one is trying to change anything? I'm pretty sure the point of the thread Chad is to confirm the fan bases dislike for the song and try to determine why this gets played on such regular rotation and how (if possible) to correct this.

    Otherwise, Yes this is a terrible song. Great discussion.

    I don't think anyone is delusional enough to think starting a thread on a message board will "correct" anything. At least I hope not.

    Haha Ok people, you are right we aren't changing anything, but then again what was the point of this thread (or most threads on here for that point).

    How many people need to agree this song with worthless before... oh wait, that's right nothing is going to change the band will still play it the same # of times as before this thread was created.

    Good stuff.

    Re: Can't Stop

    My two cents...

    Dave sees this song as being greatly enhanced with Tim's guitar and the swanky horn section. Therefore, he thinks this song is growing into a legit force. He will continue to will this onto the crowd with the hopes that it will ultimately become a favorite.

    I also believe Dave feels a general freedom these days. He is not locked into a regimented tour and has the autonomy (to some degree) to dabble in acting, modeling and other side projects. This allows him to have more fun and enjoy himself on stage. I feel that he truly is playing songs that he has the most fun with.

    With all that being said, I don't even think of "Can't Stop" as a song. It was an improv/jam type experiment that didn't die....when it probably should have.

    I also believe that part of Dave does not want to finish songs like IOY, Shotgun, Can't Stop, Break Free, Blackjack etc...

    They are almost like his "leisure" songs, that he can tweak and play with. Almost like someone who works on (or restores) cars. They dont always want the finished product....they enjoy the process of messing with them.

    This could be true and that is just horrible.

    Yikes. Every thread is pointless and stupid. It's just for discussion/killing a little time when we should be working.

    If you're looking for something meaningful, I'd start by leaving a forum about a band.

    Someone create a poll... what song would you rather hear at a show... Cant Stop or Out of My Hands. OOMH is a setlist killer! It is really the only song in the catalog I hate with a passion. Re-tread lyrics from another song on the same album while Dave plays piano. Sorry guys, but I'll take Cant Stop over that snooze-fest any day of the week. Not that Cant Stop is anything other than average to below average...

    To be honest it's a lot better when he does it solo. I thought it was pretty cool back in 02 when he started doing it.

    It's horrible now though, I just can't stand it for some reason.

    OP -

    maybe this is a band that has gotten as successful as one could ever dream, so every now and then, they play whatever the fuck they wana play. good for them.

    be happy they still tour. after so many years, many bands dont.

    (and i say this in a nice tone, not as a doucher)

    Seen this piece of shit now 7 times after last night and it is still as bad as ever. Don't care about Tim's solo. Thy have plenty of other songs he can solo on. Fuck. This. Song.

    Edit: that being said, last night was amazing. Wouldn't let this ruin it for me.
