Whether you're a fan of Dave Matthews, you've listened to Under the Table and Dreaming at one point or another in your life. Whether trapped and tortured at a party in Tallahassee or singing aloud on a long drive to visit your boyfriend in Gainesville, you've heard this bad boy. For a musician who's as sweet-seeming and talented as Dave Matthews, a dude who's awesomely appeared in more than one Adam Sandler movie, he and his band are one of the more polarizing acts in popular music.
People die for DMB, like love him with stoner hysteria, follow him around the country. Still, others will judge you harshly for having lost your virginity while your favorite DMB song played on repeat. Apparently, between 2000 and 2009, 11.2 million DMB concert tickets were sold. It's likely that more white Americans than not have been to one of these shows.
