It's very chic for connoisseurs of "cool" music to trash the Dave Matthews Band. Yes, they crank out jammy songs that tend to be indistinguishable from one another. Yes, they're so prolific they come off as annoyingly ubiquitous. And, absolutely, they attract inebriated throngs of former Greek-system undergrads to their shows.

But we should all lighten up and consider their roots: They slaved away on the bar-band circuit for years before attaining megastardom. And you can't really argue with the bang (three-hour concerts are de rigueur) this band gives their fans for the buck.
