Dave Matthews Band

Year Eligible: 2018
Debut Album: Remember Two Things (1993)
Why They Should Be Inducted: The Dave Matthews Band's first release was a live record, and, even though they have chalked up several multi-platinum releases, they have become one of the best bands to see live. Up until 2011, the group toured every year for the previous 20. Touring-industry trade magazine Pollstar named the band Top Act of the Decade, as they had grossed nearly $530 million at that point. But more than economical concerns, hits like "Ants Marching" and "American Baby" continue to endure.
Possible Drama: None. The group's lineup has remained consistent, other than saxophonist LeRoi Moore's death in 2008 and the departure of two keyboardists who left on their own accord.
