    They put on a good show, as long as it's a smaller venue.
    I don't think they get enough credit for the influence they've had on other bands.

    311 kicks ass!!! They have been such an influence on me as a musician and as a human being. Their message has always been an inspiring one, and I have never heard an album that was bad from them.

    i was listening to some UDS song in my car once a few years back, and my buddy, a big 311 fan, asked me where i got the "new 311 album" he "never heard it before"

    I agree

    I think they are swinging back from their kind of sucking phase. Their last album sounded more like the old-school.
  13. i really used to dig 311 alot more than i do now, they still rock and kick ass, but i like to see a little bit more free form stuff at shows, a little live soloing and random stuff, which the do do, a little,
    ive seen them twice, once at a 1/2 house arena, (i was onthe floor) and at a big outdoor venue, by far the floor was the best, they rocked,a nd it was sooooooo full of energy

    great band
    positive message

    I love 311's lyrics (in their songs that aren't played on the radio)

    If you like 311 theres a pretty cool ska band called "the urge" and they sound similar. Anyone else familiar?
