Biography

Omaha, Nebraska, United States (1990 – present)

311 was formed in 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska, United States by singer/guitarist Nick Hexum, singer S.A. Martinez, guitarist Tim Mahoney, drummer Chad Sexton and bassist P-Nut. The band now resides in Los Angeles, California.

311 mix rock, rap, reggae and funk into their own unique sound. After years of consistent touring, 311 have developed a reputation as one of the hardest working, most influential and most entertaining live bands in the U.S.

311 have released ten studio albums, one live album, one greatest hits album and three dvd’s - and have sold over 8.5 million albums in the U.S. Seven of their albums have reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Sales Chart…and 9 of their singles have reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Alternative Rock Radio Chart (including the #1 singles Down, Love Song & Don’t Tread On Me. Along with Amber, All Mixed Up, Come Original, Creatures For Awhile, Hey You, and Sunset in July).

311’s newest album, Universal Pulse, released in Summer 2011, was produced by Bob Rock, mixed by Chad Sexton and debuted at #7 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart.

The band’s celebratory live shows & incessant touring schedule have earned them a massive grassroots following nationwide. Since its inception in 2004, 311’s annual summer headlining amphitheatre run, Unity Tour, has become one of the largest modern rock concerts of the summer.

    "Substance" (like everything) is a relative-term. Love it or hate it, I actually think the 311 sound is pretty distinctive... instantly identifiable/recognizable. They're extremely solid musicians and really great guys, I mean there are dozens of bands I would berate before 311...they've never "sold out" (or changed with the times... they've stayed on their own course) and never changed their message (unity/positivity) EVER. If nothing else they're a respectable band with a pretty good live show

    Seriously the worst band in existence. Awful music with no substance.

    Even after two 3/11 days and a bunch of other summer concerts over the years, I was going to give up on 311 if Stereolithic disappointed. They turned it around and made their best product since From Chaos.

    Lovin' the new record; oddly though, the first half or so of the album never scrobbles for me (not sure why I care, but I guess that's why I got last.fm in the first place)!

    Disliked the news song the first 5x I listened to it...now...I'm starting to like it. They are elite status. Hope I'm seeing 311 when I have grandkids like my parents are still seeing Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, etc.

    For the longest time the blue album was my favorite by far but Grassroots is starting to take that spot.

    You can (over time) certainly have a "change of heart" (to some extent) that doesn't make you stupid... it makes you a human being with a brain. As long as you can articulate your opinion then there's no way that you're "wrong" or "dumb"... My feeling is that between Uplifter and Universal Pulse the band did... I don't know I have 24 songs with Bob Rock. Especially on the last record (where they only completed & released 8 songs; which still is very odd) I think they made a couple 'nice' records (I know Bob ALWAYS gives his input...) but I just think it's time to go back to their "old" style and up the playing & musicianship side of things once again. Still one of my favorite bands... at least I'm familiar enough with ALL of their albums to form an opinion. Freedom of speech allows me to feel one way & then amend/alter what I said. I think it actually takes a BIG person to do that... :-)

    Blue Album is only 5th in my ranking. Transistor, Soundsystem, Music, and From Chaos are all superior imo.
