The Top Cover Songs Performed by Dave Matthews BandPosted by Jake Vigliotti in Site News at 3:50pm on Tuesday, Jul 26th, 2011
Covers. We love 'em; we hate 'em. Like it or not, bands (good and bad) have always included covers in their live and studio repertoires. What first put the Beatles on the map in Liverpool in the early 60's? Motown covers. Similarly, it was Dave Matthews Band's eerie yet powerful version of All Along The Watchtower that put them on the map in Charlottesville; the ever-growing throngs came to hear Watchtower.
Covers have always been and continue to be a part of the DMB show, with growing variety as well. The addition of a full-time Tim Reynolds expanded the classic rock influence of the covers chosen (i.e. Money, Good Times Bad Times, Sweet Emotion) and (without checking any stats) the frequency of cover songs being played. We at AntsMarching.org (and by "We" I mean "I") have defined the top 10 DMB covers at all time. Check the list here.
