I'm going to say this very quietly.

I own Matchbox Twenty's first album and loved it back when I was eleven. Honestly, I'd probably still enjoy some of the songs. I also own the second album but never really enjoyed it much even back when it was new and now it just gathers dust. I agree that everything from then on is too adult contemporary.

I really really really like some songs by them (3 Am, Push, Real World, Mad Season) but most of the rest is pretty meh, specially their newer single

Never had a particular problem with Matchbox 20. I can think of 20 bands that are exactly like them but slightly worse.

Because Blackfield's live cover of that is amazing.
You better not be thinking of Dido as I freaking love her.

He just wants to showcase songs he thinks are examples of good songwriting, and Thank U is one that he covered, then played live when Blackfield last toured.

I like that he altered some lyric about ... luminescent carrots? or something really ridiculous like that to "changing a line because it don't make sense".
