The Dave Matthews Band has been documenting its shows long enough to know what translates to the screen, and this disc, culled from 2002 tour stops at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state, is a shining example of how live-concert DVDs should be shot: Viewers get not simply the house video-screen feed or endless close-ups but a mix of perspectives, edited in sync with the flow of the music. The sets are fairly straightforward, with the usual handful of DMB highlights. The highest: a dastardly rendition of "Pig."

MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
