Yes he/they are/were THAT bad.

Exhibit (a) - The song 'Real World'. The music? As boring and as middle of the road as you could possibly try to be. I don't even know why I or anyone would need to point that out, music made specificaly so that a Celine Dion fan can say "yes I like some rock music actually". Lyrics below. Try explaining how it is not complete and utter shit, and why Rob Thomas & Matchbox 20 should ever have been left to record anything again, and explain exactly why he shouldn't be banished to somewhere where he can happily put yellow tags on rain drops....

Seriously, try to defend this:


I wonder what it’s like to be the rainmaker.
I wonder what it’s like to know that I made the rain
I’d store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone
And you can come and see them when i’m...done, when I’m done

I wonder what it’s like to be a super hero
I wonder where I’d go if I could fly around downtown
From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow sun
Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned, they’re stunned
(chorus)
Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart
Strange, where were you, when we started this gig,
I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me

I wonder what it’s like to be the head honcho
I wonder what I’d do if they all did just what I said
I’d shout out an order, I think we’re out of this man get me some
Boy don’t make me wanna change my...tone, my tone
(chorus)

Please don’t change, please don’t break
The only thing that seems to work at all is you
Please don’t change, at all from me
To you, and you to me
(chorus)

that's some bitch-shit, man.

those lyrics ROT.

wow. i've heard that song a lot in the past, but i never fully realized how horrible the lyrics were.

and could their music be any more unimaginative? i'm all for catchy music, but for shit sakes, they don't even have a hook.

great analogy with celine dion, btw. that's gross stuff.

Right back atcha.

And my God, those lyrics are heinous. They're even worse than the Audioslave lyrics I once had a misfortune of reading in a review.

wow...I vaguely remember hearing that song a few times, and didn't think much of it.
It surpasses "Drops of Jupiter" on the suckness; which until now I thought was impossible.

The music video for "Lonely No More" is bad too.

i'm happy with who i am, where i am, and where i think i'm going.

if people don't have the capacity to distinguish art from money-making artificial machines, perhaps they should give up on music.

and your dead sexy

that song does suck..
i did like that matchbox 20 tune ..the first one..i wanna push you down...that one- it was ok...

but this new one ...is he trying to be justin timberlake or what
its fuckin stupid


P.S.
- i posted this without reading the whole thread....its so funny how other people think hes tryin to be justin timberlake
heheh

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that thinks Rob Thomas is utter crap, produced solely for profits & image.

boosterjuice, what are you talking about? EVERYONE here is on your side!

I mean, granted his solo stuff sucks, but does MB20 deserve a whole thread about their suckiness. Mad Season as a song and album are awesome.
