The anniversary of Jerry's death has been acknowledged everywhere. He was an enormously iconic figure in American music and inspired massive affection from his fans.
#Grateful4TheDead
You may not love their music, but Jerry and the Dead inarguably had a massive effect on the culture. They created a community that resonates decades after they've stopped performing — how many bands can say that?
#Grateful4TheDead
Fans marvel that anyone could muster hatred for a group of peace-loving hippies.
#SoNotGrateful
But some people just can't stand their music.
#SoNotGrateful
The Grateful Dead spawned numerous imitators, from Phish and Widespread Panic to String Cheese Incident and the Disco Biscuits— not to mention all of the Dead tribute bands that have proliferated. So if you loathe jam bands, it seems like they're everywhere… and multiplying. Jam band haters blame the Dead for inflicting this scourge upon them.
#SoNotGrateful
Haters argue that without the drugs, the music is just terrible.
