Honestly, the crowd at just about every major act out there is better then the DMB crowd.
I really hate to say this, but I am going to anyway...
Frat guys aside, the HARDCORE DMB crowd is full of dorks...
How many people at DMB shows have you met that have no clue about any other band then DMB? I have never seen anything like it... They can tell you the last time "people people" was played live in the month of October, but if you asked them who wrote AATW, the answer is probably going to be either Dave or Hendrix.
They predict the set list OUTLOUD with 90% accuracy, debating it with their friends based on statistical probability - and ruin the surprise factor for everyone else around them.
They get pissed off when WAYG is played, and to show everyone how hardcore they are, they either sit down, or announce the fact that they are going to go take a piss because WAYG sux.
They wear DMB tour shirts to the show and blare nothing but DMB out of their cars, and when you look at their IPODs in the hopes of changing it up, 95% of music is DMB and they have at least 10 live versions of Two Step alone.
The hot chicks that are there know nothing about the music, and the ones that know everything, are never hot.
I am not saying that these people don't exist in every fan base, but in the DMB fanbase, there are SO many of them... If DMB were a movie, their shows would be the equivalent of attending STAR WARS convention.
I have been a fan for over 10 years, but every time I see Pearl Jam, or Phish, or MMJ - I always think about how much BETTER the crowd is... Damn, I even saw KOL this fall and their crowd was better then DMB's crowd.
