I do my chains after every ride, not that they need it but it's called maintenance.
Maybe someone's chain might not need the attention, but over lubing the chain is better than under lubing.

I find it strange that people will spend anywhere from $300-$30K on a bicycle then they'll try to skimp on doing the most basic of maintenance, a litre bottle of Pro Gold cost around $40, why would you not do your chain often, considering the replacement cost of the chain, cassette, derailleur freewheels, etc.
Use whatever brand works best for you, do it often, what cost maybe 50cents now will save you bigger dollars in the long run.
Commuting the whole week with the squeaking sound has made it worse to an extend that the gears were extremely rough while shifting.I feel I should've lubricated it better.
