That's impressive to say the least. I've always liked his "popular" songs, but probably couldn't name more than 8-10 off the top of my head. I've always heard his concerts aren't that great. Not sure if I just happened to have spoken to people who didn't want to be there, or that is the general consensus though.
Since the OP said, "the guy has sold more records than anybody" I decided to do some research. Oops.

Those are single album sales. All of these artists have had multiple albums since 91. You have to factor in all of those sales too.
This is like saying Karen Carpenter is rock music's greatest drummer.
Darius has defied the odds and has been able to change genre's and continue to sell tons of records. He also is a great Gamecock fan so even though I don't love his music I give him great respect.
As to who is the best over the last 20 years I guess that comes down to personal taste. Some people in here who bash Dave Matthews musical abilities have voiced their love of dubstep when that computer generated garbage is nothing more than loud bass on ecstasy. Not sure you can trust a fan of a genre of music that does not involve an actual instrument.
