YMMV / Dave Matthews Band

  • Broken Base: Triggered by Butch Taylor's departure from the band on the eve of the 2008 tour and Tim Reynolds coming in as his replacement, resulting in the band's shift from a jazz-centered sound to a more rock-oriented one.
  • Face of the Band: Gee, who do you think??
  • Misblamed: During one show in Chicago, their tour bus driver emptied out the bus's septic tank over the Kinzie Street Bridge, unknowingly covering a passing boat and it's passengers with raw sewage. To this very day, the band is blamed for the incident despite having no involvement, if only because it gives their Hatedom an excuse to hate them even more.
  • Narm: Everything on Stand Up, for sounding so completely out-of-character.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Jeff Coffin (who replaced LeRoi Moore on sax after the latter's tragic death) mostly manages to avert this among reasonable fans. It doesn't hurt that he used to be a member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, who have opened for Dave Matthews Band on several tours.
  • Signature Song: "Ants Marching" and "Crash into Me" are probably their best known songs from a commercial standpoint.
  • Snark Bait: They're a common butt of jokes about toothless yuppie music.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The opening notes of "Fool To Think" sound similar to the main theme of Matilda.
