Under-rated bands part two: 311


I don't know if 311 ever really had any hits after this one, but this one alone has been good enough to keep them around in the minds of many, even if they've gone the way of The Divinyls, Suzanne Vega and The Pretenders.

The obvious thing to do in a quasi-pop-culture blog like this would've been to post about "Human," by The Killers ... but I seldom like to do the obvious, or conventional thing. Maybe some day, in the nebulous *future*, I shall wax philosphic about The Killers and their human/dancer song, but not today true belivers. Not today. Today, 311 gets its much deserved day in kangaroo court.
