30DSC Twelve: A Song From a Band You Hate

30-Day Song Challenge Day 12: A Song From a Band You Hate

Oh, who came up with these? 

I'm probably going to catch a lot of flack for saying this, but I hate Matchbox Twenty.  It's true.  Hate them.  Can't stand them.  When a Matchbox Twenty-- or Rob Thomas, for that matter -- song comes on the radio, I turn it IMMEDIATELY.  Except for two.  The two Matchbox Twenty songs that I love were the first two, the very best, and those two songs are the reason I hate them now.

In my humble opinion, no other song by Matchbox Twenty will ever meet the standards set by "Long Day" and "Push."  Everything since has been a disappointment.

Reach down your hand in your pocket, pull out some hope for me, it's been a long day.

Watch "Long Day" and "Push."  And please don't send me hate mail.
