Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Dave Matthews Has a New Single!

I don’t know if you guys are Dave Matthews fans, or if the fascination is strictly owned by the generation of today’s twenty-eight-plus, but Dave Matthews has a new single? Woo! … Woo?

The song is called ‘Mercy’, and DM debuted it last night on Jimmy Fallon.

All I know is that if success or popularity is gauged by how often we’ve talked about someone here on Evil Beet, then Dave Matthews is not at all popular in 2012. Because we haven’t talked about him since 2009, and even then, it was more about him being on Twitter and talking about snail farts rather than actually his music itself.

Do you guys love Dave Matthews? And if so, just out of curiosity: HOW OLD ARE YOU? Not going to lie on this one—I love me some Dave Matthews, always have, and I’m twenty-eight years old. I’m going to be twenty-nine in June, and I’m pretty positive I’ll still love him then, too.

  • Sorry Sarah, I’m 22 and don’t know that I’ve heard his stuff (not knowing it was his anyway…) and I am a music fan…
    generation before mine I guess

  • Remember when one of the rules of Evil Beet was to never speak about this man and his band? Haha. Also, I don’t know who this is, but it may have to do with my being Spanish and all that!

  • My computer just went crazy, so who knows if I’m reposting…

    I’m from New Zealand so that could be why, I’d definitely heard of him before via US tv/blogs, just not his actual music.

    Good song though!

  • i’m 36 and have loved dave matthews since i started listening to him in college in ’94. i love the way he moves and that smirky grin he always has on his face!

  • im 27 and always loved dave matthews. i liked the song! he has such a nice voice, it relaxes me. i was wondering if they were going to make more music after the one guy passed away.

  • I’m 56 and have loved Dave since the early 90’s. My father was in the music industry so I’ve always listened to a wide array of music. Dave is extremely talented and if anyone of any age gave his music a shot they would find something that they loved by him !

  • I’m 46 and love DMB. In fact, my sister and her husband met at a DMB concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater just outside of Denver, and a few years later were married on the stage there. Great Band, Great Music!

  • I’m 18 and I’ve loved DMB for as long as I can remember. My 16th birthday gift was to see him live in Italy, it was the best experience of my life to date. I don’t know about everyone, but most all my friends in high school and almost all of my friends in college know dave matthews. they don’t all love him, but a lot of them do. I don’t know if it’s a midwest thing but I’ve been hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t at least recognize a DMB song.

  • i’m 32 & his voice has been makin’ me puke since the mid 90s. more power to him though – shit tons better than the crap comin’ out these days! dammit i sound old….
