Best songs of 3.0 (Pick the worst/Tourney)

CHOOSE THE WORST SONG!
CHOOSE THE WORST SONG!

Back to doing this kind of fun thing. Give us some momentum going into the tour. Choose the worst songs of 3.0 and we’ll eventually narrow it down to the best. Judge it based off of how well performed the song is and if it suits the lineup well. Ideally I’ll eliminate 4 per week, but we’ll see how many votes we get

Do you mean 3.0 with Boyd or the current lineup (which should probably be 4.0 now, right?)

Whether I'm talking about Street on the 2014 release or the Grey Street video they just released makes a huge difference.

OSW was an easy choice near the top of the list

Gotta be OSW. Song hasn't sounded good since the novelty of them changing it up in 2004 wore off... by the end of 2004.

OSW and I’m surprised Ants Marching isn’t on there. That song is a fucking train wreck live nowadays.

3.0 with Boyd. I consider post Boyd 3.5 or 4.0 for sure. No violin is a huge sound difference enough to be a new era.

I think if Ants was there I would have chosen that over OSW.

OSW has been shit for a long time, Ants is a more recent debacle.

This is really sad when you think about it. This song is probably the quintessential DMB song. For it to be shit now is really fucking sad.

Feeling brave so I picked Sugar Will. The modern versions basically trimmed off everything good about the song.

Yeah, its sad, but its also been played so goddamn much that nobody in the band bothers to do anything but make loud noises that are sort of in tune with the song. Theres no precision or real notable structure anymore to it.

Of all the songs that got "retooled" this year that was the one that benefited from not having Boyd skreeching over it but also suffered because it was kinda obvious they just were like "this is Ants, we make noise and close sets with it, just play along and it should be ".

I think more than any other song a year on the shelf would do that song a lot of good. Though that list for me also includes Grey Street (better this year but still neutered and the fact that I've heard it at 51% of my shows over 18 years is tiring), Jimi Thing (), YMDT and OSW. If that batch went and fucked off for a year or two and came back fresh it would be a really nice surprise.

OSW with Seek Up in the runner-up position. Never liked it with the 3.0 lineup.

I don’t understand the options. Some of these songs are amazing 3.0, and a couple are specifically the most ruined 3.0 songs. If the goal is to find the best 3.0 songs, shouldn’t stuff like YMDT, Cornbread, SDL, and other notably improved songs be there?

OSW seems obvious. But Grey Squeak and Halloween are tempting. Don’t drink should also be included

Boiled it down to osw, grey street and rapunzel. Went with osw.

All three songs kinda suck right now and that’s a shame because they were all amongst my favorites years ago
