Why are we calling this song Bob Law again?

Very few liked Bob Law. People now think it's the best DMB song in years. Nothing about it structurally changed. Dave just gets to do his sledgehammer dance on it now. Two hands on the mic.

Agree. And I never understood the complaints about the studio version.

I liked it the moment it debuted and knew it would become a well liked song. That being said, It doesn’t crack my top 5 3.0 songs and might be the next one I vote for on this list.

I think, like most good DMB songs, being overplayed hurts its stock.

Yes, and to me it also just doesn't have that sound I associate with DMB. If Dave wasn't singing, it could be a totally different band. It does have a great hook though, and doesn't have any truly cringey sections or parts that feel lame or forced. So it's def top tier from the last decade for sure, but I definitely prefer almost everything left on this list over it.

A&A's studio version is why people really fell in love with the song.
It was the least liked of the 3 new songs in 2016 at the time.

Live, I think the debut version is my favorite. Vocally, Dave's success rate live is about 20% on this song. In 2018-19 they played it a bit slower live, and seeing Dave not playing an instrument at all kind of bugs me. So, overall not big on it live anymore (overplay didn't help). I think Buddy could be filling out the song more than he is. They should turn him up more or something.

Out of curiosity, is this tournament based off of the studio or live versions?

I've been going by studio only unless there isn't a studio version to refer to.

We obviously agree with one another, it was just a funny way to word it to me.
