Critically-acclaimed rock band 311 has impressively maintained their loyal fanbase throughout the years. Emerging in 1988, they’re among the top-rated bands not bound by a single genre. 311 has been praised for their ability to mix rock, rap, reggae, funk, metal, and alternative into one neat and catchy package. They have produced 13 studio albums, selling over seven million copies in the U.S.
During the band’s early days, in their hometown in Nebraska, they released their debut EP, Downstairs. The album, recorded in 1989 in member Nick Hexum’s basement, was self-released. The record was so unknown that fans could not purchase a physical copy of the album anywhere.
In 1992, singer Doug “SA” Martinez joined the band. Shortly after recruiting Martinez permanently, the band moved to Los Angeles and scored a record deal with Capricorn Records. The following year 311 released their debut studio album, Music. The record, featuring the singles “Freak Out” and “Do You Right,” entered Billboard’s Heatseeker chart, peaking at number 37. The album was later certified gold in 1999 after selling over 500,000 copies in the U.S. During the promotion for this album, 311 drove in an old RV and tower a bus, which held their equipment. The tour was entirely self-financed.
Three years later, the band made their first breakthrough with their self-titled studio album. The record topped Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and peaked at number 12 on the Billboard 200. 311 spawned several hit singles from this album, including the number 1 Modern Rock Track, “Down,” and All Mixed Up,” which peaked at number 4 on the same chart. To this day, the self-titled album is the band’s best-selling effort. It sold over three million copies in the U.S. and was certified triple platinum three years after its release.
311 moved on to have a remarkable career. They continued to perform impressively on the mainstream charts with each studio release. Their latest effort, Voyager, debuted at number 18 on the Billboard 200 and number 2 on the Top Alternative Albums chart. The 2019 effort, which maintained their rap-rock and alternative-rock sound, received wide critical acclaim from fans and critics.
311 is notorious for attracting crowds by the thousands. In 2000, the prolific live performers jumpstarted an unofficial holiday called 311 Day. Since then, the band has celebrated 311 Day every two years with a monster two-day show in various locations. This 2023, 311 Day will be held in a Carribean Cruise, wherein the band will perform a total of 50 songs. The cruise has already sold out.
