311- Do You Right

What always makes you feel better when you're down? The music you listened to as a teenager. This rings especially true if you listened to positive-vibe music. 311 will always be an all-time favorite band of mine (if you didn't know me at Elgin High circa the '90s, I was "the guy who's always wearing a 311 t-shirt"). Here's a particular favorite if you're experiencing any winter blahs yet . It's a deep-cut, but this is the very song and vid that firmly established the band as a favorite in my head. From their 1991 album aptly-titled Music. Please do explore. They've been around for 20+ years now.

  • It's 8:16am would you wake up to me/First thing that you see...

    Ahhh.. First time i ever saw them -- 8/16/97 at the Rosemont Horizon! They played that tune and the mosh pit was one of the friendliest i've ever been in. The soccer floor was down and i think Spearhead opened. Awesome.

  • great song choice - both 8:16 am and do you right....

    creatures is one of my favorite pick me up songs....

    You hear their new album? It's only ten songs, but most of it sounds like outtakes from the blue album/ Transistor sessions. Including "Time Bomb," which always reminds me of "Creatures.."! Rock on, mauraheizer.
