Don't Drink the Water

The ever eclectic Dave Matthews Band went the socio-political route with brilliantly resonant results on 1998's blistering 'Don't Drink the Water', a mocking, vicious indictment of both South African apartheid and the decimation of Native Americans by Spanish conquistadors. Check out an appropriately fiery, highly effective live take of this landmark song, taken from 2003's 'The Central Park Concert' video, which shows the band members firing on all cylinders, effortlessly displaying their collective, synergistic yet-unsurpassed instrumental prowess, and their instinctive knack for a bloody good jam session.
