video
Dave Matthews Band, sometimes shortened to DMB, is an American jam band formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991. Founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, violinist Boyd Tinsley, drummer Carter Beauford, and saxophonist LeRoi Moore. In August 2008, LeRoi Moore died due to complications from an ATV accident. Grammy Award-winner Jeff Coffin, of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, has since filled Moore's spot as the band's saxophonist. Rashawn Ross and Tim Reynolds have also become full time touring members of the band. With musicians who each have roots in differing genres, including jazz, classical, soul, rock, bluegrass, and hip-hop, the band has come together to create an eclectic sound which has earned them fans from a variety of quarters.

"Crash into Me" is off the album Crash. It reached #7 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart in March 1997. It is also featured on Dave Matthews Band's first compilation album, The Best of What's Around Vol. 1. The song was nominated for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals at the 1998 Grammy Awards.

In his performance on VH1 Storytellers, Matthews described this song as being about "the worship of women," albeit from a voyeur's perspective, and subsequently does a humorous impression of the woman being watched through the window complaining to the police. He ends by saying that he wrote this song instead of getting arrested.

The song has been covered by various artists including Stevie Nicks, who performed it on her 2008 Soundstage episode. Her version was later released as a single.
