Every year on the 11th of March, abbreviated as 3-11, fans of 311 celebrate their favorite day of the year—311 Day! AS a HUGE fan of the band for the past 13 years (yup I started adoring them back in 7th grade), this year is especially exciting for me.
I see people that I haven’t seen in years and the first thing they generally ask is, “Are you still a 311 fan?” Of course!
If you aren’t familiar with the band, they are all about unity and positivity. Their lyrics express this and have a way of making me happy. When I am having a bad day, 311 instantly cheers me up. Their positive messages help me to forget about all of the bs and focus on the good things.
Plus it doesn’t hurt that the lead singer, Nick Hexum (who was once engaged to Nicole of the Pussycat Dolls) is gorgeous ;) He's the tall guy in the picture in the back wearing the wife beater! He's also the blond guy in the video below.
In honor of 311, here is the first song that I ever heard by the band. I still remember exactly where I was and my reaction the first time I heard it…
