I was sitting at a traffic light blaring Misunderstood (the instrumental section just before "It challenges the essence..." and a guy next to me shouted over and asked me "Who is that?", so I told him Dream Theater and he said "Thanks!" and wrote it down on a piece of paper.   :metal

I pulled up to a like blaring Misunderstood, and some guy screams "TURN THAT SHIT DOWN!"

Another time I was playing Scarred, and I heard a really loud horn and it was an undercover cop next to me.  I turned it off and he said, "Not everyone likes that music buddy."   :blush

Years ago when SDOIT first came out, FW's dad and I were driving to a friend's house and were blaring Misunderstood on my car stereo, and FW was curled up in fetal position on the back seat crying with his hands over his ears.  True story.

Okay, truth be told, I was actually blaring The Glass Prison, and instead of crying, FW was actually pretty into it.

Years ago, I was in a guitar shop and some guy next to me was playing Pull Me Under. Being a n00b at the time, I asked him "Is that Dream Theater?" He seemed to be amused at my question, replying "Yes, yes it is." He must have thought I was really cool for knowing an underground band like DT! True story.

One time I listened to A Change of Seasons in my car and I found it to be an enjoyable experience.  :sadpanda:

If that guy saw that video, he probably thought "Oh my god I am the dumbest motherfucker in all the world"

This very situation happened to me in 2005 only it was The Dance of Eternity and he yelled "Sweeeeeet music! what is it?" I told him, ejected SFAM and threw it to him before the light went green :lol

I've gotta do this next time!! Especially since I keep all my originals at home and burn CD-R's for the car.

I was listening to Systematic Chaos one time while was on the toilet.  It really helped my situation, the two actually went nicely together, true story.

I imagined the story to go more like this.


I was sitting at a traffic light blaring Misunderstood (the instrumental section just before "It challenges the essence..." and a guy next to me shouted over and asked me "Who is that?", so I told him "It's Dream Theater!" and he said "Scream Theater?" and I said "NO! You Misunderstood!" Then I turned from a thief to a beggar.

I was sitting a traffic light blaring Space Dye Vest and next to me in another car was Kevin Moore. And I'll never be open again.

I don't know why, but I literally laughed out loud at this one.  :rollin

One time I was at work and I had "A Change of Seasons" on.  Some guy asked me who it was, and I told him it was a band called Dream Theater.  He said "Are you kidding?  Those guys are awesome!" and I was like Shut up, you've never even heard of them.  He says "What song is this?" and I told him.  He said, "I've still got to get that.  I still only have Images and Words and Awake."

This was when ACOS was the latest release.  I said "Holy shit, you do know who Dream Theater is!"  I worked with the guy for another five years, and talked DT with him whenever I could because he was (and still is) the only person I've ever worked with who knows Dream Theater.

True story.

You are a sig-making machine.

Also the cashier at my school school was listening to A Change of Seasons the other day, and... she is a WOMAN. True Story.

Orbert

Argh, can't make the obligatory " but girls don't listen to prog" joke because we actually have girls here.


And also, because it's not very funny.


tri.ad

That's a really cool story indeed.

Vivace

I was on an expedition that actually found the end of Pull Me Under. There were Nazis, Arabs, booby traps, a knight, a vilupcuous female, a bumbling side kick, a ruthless henchman, a temple priest who can rip out your heart and start it on fire.... oh wait I think I'm mixing up two expeditions I had.

This thread rules. True story.  :rollin

One time I was listening to DT and this cute girl asked who it was and I told her and she said, "Oh." I did not get laid at this point.



Shit.
