Best Dave Matthews Band Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Proudest Monkey

I don't really see anything special to this song. The band even meant for this song to be an intro to satellite. In my opinion, it's probably the worst song on crash, but it's still better than one direction.

Best DMB Song. And Don't You DARE CHALLENGE ME. It is so calming and it feels like I'm floating. It's nice to get away from Dave Matthews Sex songs that were highly rated because of the topic. Nice to here a well done, calming song. I have a theory on what the song means. My dad lived in Charlottesville for 4 years and said that Monkey was derogatory term towards the poorer people of Charlottesville. But they lived a very peaceful and happy life. When Dave Matthews became famous he was the proudest "Monkey" for what he had done, but was wondering if he would rather still be living that peaceful life. The rest of the song is based on the conflict of him wondering if he should've took the band to where it is now. But if the "Monkey" term is wrong than this is an absolute waste of your time. And that means that my dad has been me all these years.

Such a shame that a song as amazing as this is this far down the list. Some of DMB's best lyrics and a spectacular instrumental along with it

82 Jimi Thing
83 Too Much

Another song I think should be higher. It's a great concert song. Dave's statement on American greed with a great funky sound!

84 Halloween

This is only the best song that anyone has ever heard, dave sings so well! Carter Beauford is insane and Stefan and Tim Reynolds just flat out kill it with this riff. This is #1 by a long shot!

Dave is amazing. I can't believe this isn't number 5 or higher!

There seems to be a lot of anger coming out in this song. It's dark and I love it!

85 The Last Stop

The song might be energetic, but I find it sometimes hard to listen to. It's very disturbing and much more deep and angry than most metal songs. But Dave understood this and threw in a calm outro to calm our nerves.

Perfect in almost every way. Every aspect of this song from beginning to end is unforgettable.

Another angry song with political undertones. It shows the entire bands' mastery.

I love this song! Sounds like it is Egyptian
