Dave Matthews Band covers "Hey Hey, My My" on YouTube

Dave Matthews Band played Neil Young's "Hey Hey, My My" on Tuesday as the first encore at Camden, N.J. It was the first performance of the song by Dave Matthews Band who have previously covered Young's "Cortez the Killer" and "Down by the River."

Thanks Colin at Dave Matthews Band News!

And here's a higher quality MP3:

I'm interested to hear what Neil Young fans think of this performance and DMB's past versions of Neil songs.

I think it is great. Dave is a great artist that is always interested in helping Neil by supporting his Bridge School and kids in need.

Well done for sure, Dave Matthews and his band both sound excellent here. Thanks for the post!

Don't sleep on Tim Reynolds: he has always been playing Neil covers, with and without DM or the DMB. I think there are some vids of him playing 'Ohio' with TR3 from this spring.

Oh, and the Flying V kicks ass.

Dave Matthews is an overrated douchebag.

Never liked him.Phony fabricated voice.The proof:he doesn't even sound like himself on that one.Too close to the original.Search for the Oasis version on youtube,way more energetic.

Dave is another great original. Long may he run...

Neil's set with DMB on the Vote For Change tour (10/6/04?) is very very good, and there's an audience recording available with shockingly good sound. They do three songs and it lasts something like 45 minutes (or maybe closer to an hour? I forget).

dave matthews overrated..? well, i´d rather say that fuckin´ oasis is the most overrated band of the last 15 years, absolutely. dm and the dmb are great. great songwriter, singer, great musicians and performers. that´s how it is.
by the way, that´s a very, very good version.

cheers, thomas

Almost every cover of a NY song is kind of okay because the songs are strong. But compared to the originals... I don't know, I think I prefer NY. DMB is popular in the USA like Oasis is a typical UK band. The Oasis version of Hey Hey, My My isn't that bad.

Oasis and Noel Gallagher absolutely own Dave Matthew. Get your head checked

Oasis had two albums in them and then proved just how overrated they really were. A band based on very little other than attitude. The bargain bins suggest as much.

Back on topic...a great version of HHMM, although as mentioned earlier most NY covers are at least ok cos the originals are so strong.

Keller Williams does a great Hey Hey, My My.

I was planning on seeing DMB on their first night in Pittsburgh but nobody wanted to go with me so unfortunately I didn't get to go.

However, I saw the Pittsburgh set list and it wasn't much of what I had hoped. And I would have been pissed if I saw Dave and they didn't play Hey Hey, My My where I was I'm glad I didn't go...

Dave Matthews Band does great covers of Neil's songs. I love the version of Cortez with Warren Haynes off the Central Park Concert and they do a rockin' version of Hey Hey, My My!

"Oasis had two albums in them and then proved just how overrated they really were. A band based on very little other than attitude. The bargain bins suggest as much"

Wrong. Their third album is their best. And as for the bargain bin thing, again wrong. They are continuously one of the biggest selling bands around, you wont find Oasis albums in a bargin bin.

Again, back to the DMB thing, this version is alright but its not a patch on the Oasis cover.

The Oasis version is miles better than this.

Dave Matthews Band has long been one of the more entertaining bands of the last decade, the band hit the big time in 1994 with their album "Under the Table and Dreaming." Their second album, "Crash," helped the band achieve its first Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance for their song "So Much to Say." .Before My friend and I used to attend their concerts even their tickets are often sky high; Now we found a site where we can compare tickets prices for FREE in order to save some Dollars!!!

Dont like this one at all. Dave Matthews is a bit of an idiot. The Oasis cover is far superior.

why exactly is dave matthews an idiot?

I was just on Star 98.7's site, it's this awesome station in LA. They've got some really good info on DMB and they're giving tickets away to their next big event, too. Check it out!
