For fans of the band, March 11 has forever been known as 311 Day. And while 311 can’t play one of their epic live sets this year, we can still celebrate.
311 came onto the scene in 1993 with their full-length debut, featuring lead single "Do You Right."
Wasting no time, 311 followed up their debut with 1994's 'Grassroots.' This was my introduction to the band: the song was "8:16 a.m." and I've been a fan ever since.
Their self-titled third album was the breakthrough: 3-times platinum, with hit singles "Don't Stay Home," "All Mixed Up" and "Down."
Four albums in five years is nothing to sniff at, and that's exactly how 311 got their run underway, releasing their fourth album in 1997.
311 rounded out their '90s run with their fifth album, 'Soundsystem,' in 1999.
2001's 'From Chaos' yielded 311's most popular single to date, "Amber."
If you picked up an original Enhanced CD pressing of this one in 2003, you got a featurette on the making of the album cover.
If you bought this one via iTunes when it dropped in 2005, you got a bonus track called "Little Brother."
The break between 'Don't Tread On Me' in 2005 and 'Uplifter' in 2009--almost 4 years--was the longest break 311 had taken to this point in their career.
This 2011 mini-album is the shortest in the 311 catalog, clocking in at just 29 minutes.
This 2014 release featured 311's reunion with producer Scott Ralston, who last worked with the band on 1999's 'Soundsystem.'
311's 12th album was an album of firsts: the first to be produced by John Feldmann and the first to be released by the BMG label.
13 albums (not counting live releases, EPs and the like), and 30-plus years making music. What a run for 311. Which album is your favorite?
