  • Fun Fact: Dave Matthews doesn't avoid the subject of religion in his songs

Dave Matthews is a jam band musician and singer/songwriter of South African descent whose namesake band gained popularity in the 1990s. His lyrics dance around the subject of faith. In 2001, his song "What You Are" from Everyday makes his boldest statement: "Hoping to God on high / Is like clinging to straws / While drowning". Yet, in "Bartender" off 2002's Busted Stuff, he sings: "Bartender, please fill my glass for me / With the wine you gave Jesus / That set him free after three days down". Matthews is mostly associated with agnosticism. Photo courtesy of Mark Pagani.
