Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Sibling Rivalry with Hi-Top Top 57 Doobie Brothers Songs Ranked

Twenty years ago this week America’s (and perhaps the world’s) greatest and most innovative Rock Band, the Doobie Brothers released their landmark genre bending record Sibling Rivalry. To properly mark this achievement Hi-Top is dedicating the day to shinning a light on one of music most glorious triumphs.

Quite simply the Doobie Brothers are to music what water is to life. One can not exist without the other. When John Lennon was asked in 1978 how he could still find inspiration after all he’d accomplished with the Beatles, he had a simple yet powerful answer, “The Doobies, man.”

2000’s Sibling Rivalry was initial written off as yet another comeback record. A group looking to recapture the past, rekindle the glory of yesterday. One listen changed the world entirely. The melodies, the harmonies, the rising chords – it was vintage Doob yet so much more. The Brothers had taken a 9 year hiatus between records but not lost a single step. In many ways, the years off had aged the band like a vintage cheese. The aroma was instantly recognizable and the satisfaction hadn’t lessened one bit.

But in order to fully appreciate Sibling Rivalry as an endpoint one must consider the long journey that took place to reach that destination.
