311 was formed in Omaha in 1990 with Nick Hexum (singer/guitarist), S.A. Martinez (singer/DJ), Tim Mahoney (guitarist), P-Nut (bassist) and Chad Sexton (drummer. The group quickly became known for their blend of rap metal and reggae, signing with Capricorn in 1991. 311 released an album per year over the next three years, with a video release of live concert footage released in 1996. The group’s final gold album was released in 2001, but the band continued to play and release albums until a hiatus in 2005. However, 311 returned and released their 11th album in 2014 with producer Scott Ralston.
Thoughts on Songs with 311
I first heard this song from a skating video that I had on VHS. I would often just rewind the vid to this part so I could hear the song. Man this brings back memories of the 90's. I think this song is about still having fun despite the busy lives they lead and how they will always harken back to when they were younger in their home town.
I think this is about 311 doing their own thing for years and not bending to corporate will. This album wasn't a huge hit back in the day as I recall after their huge self titled album came out. That being said, this is one of my favorite albums because of the nostalgia.
