Best DMB Song (2010-2020) Round 2 (CHOOSE THE WORST ON THE LIST)

CHOOSE THE WORST SONG ON THE LIST

Down to the Final 6

Should be much harder now. Virginia gets my vote. Extremely overrated tune to me, and incredibly boring live. I'm not quite sure why people like it so much, I see that it has a "vibe", but it's not my cup of tea and all of those other ones I'd take over it any day.

I voted VITR. Ive always liked it well enough and think the studio version is a fantastic cut of it.

I just think the other songs are much better.

There are only 2 versions I actually like. The studio cut and the debut live version. If not for those, I'd vote it out right away.

I enjoy the studio cut of VITR, but it’s worse than sister in the live setting.

Not true at all, IMO. Then again, I've only seen it live twice, and the 5/7/16 one was beautifully and appropriately placed (and a great version).

Again and Again is the worst song on this list.

Both A&A and VITR are pretty lacking live, but I don't go to shows, so all I have is the studio albums and both of those songs are awesome in their studio forms.

I believe a vast vast majority of those posts are from when it was the Bridge. The Bridge was the messageboard that was big until...2002-03? Maybe it died out earlier than that. Anyway, when TDC came about, a lot of us took our post count with us over here. I went to 32 shows - I think my last was like 2014? I'm not really into their sound now live, though I may go back at some point. I still like seeing what happens around here.

I think the exact same thing about Snow Outside.

Do You Remember sounds like Hanson's MMBop from the 90s. So that's my vote.

Agreed. Snow Outside never translated to the live setting for me, though it is a great studio track.

I donít get this. Itís got that great breaking point where Tim slips into the ambient swells and Jeff starts in on the solo. Snow outside is by no means a top top tier DMB tune, but as far as the last decade, itís certainly top 3. For all the hatred of louder/faster/busier DMB, it surprises me that the slow burners are written off as boring.

Broken Things - such a lost, overlooked gem. This has to get played live by the current lineup with Tim taking over Boydís solos.
