  4. I dont know, but to go slightly off the original thread. I saw 311 (three-eleven) last Thursday and they were one of the worst live bands i have ever ever seen. I dont like their music much but that was just appalling.

    Why did you go to a 311 concert if you don't like their music?I think there one of the best bands live.Their singer is good and gets the crowd going,their guitarist can solo,their bassist has a good tone,and their drummer,well,he's the best modern rock drummer.Well maybe he's not as good as Danny Carey,;) .My friend noted above went to their concert and said they were good,and I've seen both of their videos,and they seem good live to me.

    But I think any band you don't like isnt going to sound good live...

  7. dude, there is a Pop Group by the same name, the only difference is the way you say their names

    Rock 311: Three-one-one
    Pop 311: Three-Eleven

    um, please clarify... 311 (as in the only 311 most people have ever heard of... three eleven) is a rock band... is there another band that is heavier or something?

    The band 311, with P-Nut as their bassist is a rock band.

    The band 311 (pronouced three one one) is a pop group (like Destiny's Child, but younger, that was only around when that boy band tripe started around 98-99)
     
  12. you must have had your hearing aid set on "broken". 311 has the best, tightest, most energetic live performances of anyone playing today.

    I've only seen them live once, but based on that, I agree 100%. And I'm not a huge 311 fan either, although some of their early stuff is pretty cool.

    I know, *StOnEd*, but the way that he worded his posted sounded like trolling. As I said, I am not a 311 fan, so if somebody doesn't like them, it's no skin off my back.

    Yesss!!!! 311 is a great live band! They all give great performances.

    Some of their songs that I like are

    Large in the Margin
    Evolution
    All Mixed Up (311's biggest hit - 1995)
    T+P Combo
    Livin' and Rockin'
    Down
    Don't Stay Home
    From Chaos
    Amber
    Flowing
    Freeze Time
    Purpose
    I'll be here a while
    Come Original
    Homebrew
    I told myself
    Beautiful Disaster

    They have so many excellent songs... there are just too many to name. Download a few of these ones and you'll get a pretty good idea of what 311 sounds like.

    Yeah I think "from chaos" isnt as good as early stuff like hydroponic,and homebrew,or feels so good.oh "nut symptom" has a nice slap solo.
