Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I would classify them as Alternative (or Southern Rock)

Matchbox Twenty Roooooooooock! They manage to take G,C and D and make it sound fresh everytime.

They can go from sloooooow acoustic (Hang) to Rock Rock Rock (Disease) and everywhere in between! Any MB20 fans out there?

yeah they're not really southern or indie.
they're pretty 'alternative' i guess.
i like them pretty good though.

Ohh, be nice.

But anyway. I liked them in fifth grade. And you'll probably want to take this to the Modern Rock forum.

Thanks K-lizzle, I always defined them as Alternative, so I thought this was the place for this, but clearly not :S

I'm surprised that no one really enjoys this band. I hadn't listened to them since I was in fourth grade (apart from their new single, which I hope doesn't reflect their new album), but the other day I heard the introduction to Bent. Suddenly, I felt an urge to listen to them again.

I've been listening to the album Mad Season, the only one I own by Matchbox 20, the past two days.

To be honest, despite the fact the group is (or, at least, was) fairly mainstream doesn't detract from the fact that they're actually a fairly enjoyable band.

I don't understand all of the negativity towards the band in this thread. Anyone care to explain?

Also, how is the new album? Personally, I find their new single to be a far departure from their work on Mad Season. Does the rest of the album have a similar feel?

I feel bad that everyone hates them, I find them really good to listen to. They definitely have some good songs.

I only have their first album, but it's pretty cool.

the album Yourself, or Someone Like You is a good album.

Another good one is More Than You Think You Are.

I've loved this band since i was like 10, and i still like them a lot and every song off of those two albums.

CHECK EM OUT!

Dude... 'Nuff of that elitist crap. This thread has been left here this long, so my guess is that it's probably not going to be moved...

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
