that's true! I can't even remember when I saw them open for Blink in the Summer of '01...I was just one of thousands of infants at that show...but when I turned 5 they made that sellout soft album...

I have two schools of thought on the rapping:
1. They were a lot better at rapping in their youth...I think this is because they were way more into hip-hop back then and they emulated/expressed that...

Yea I wouldn't rule out the "evolution to a jam band" concept...I've thought the same thing...I think many fans have. They've dabbled in going into that territory (starting w/ "gray sky" and...

I think the dude was just overreacting to what he took as a 311-dis. 311 fans are a sensitive bunch because we get shit-on and condescended to on a regular basis since about 2000...that our favorite...

at the end of the day, as a fan since '95, yea I think their first 5 albums/90's material is their best (to your point of 311 pre-amber is better than 311 post-amber...this is true). I think that's...

really? you don't know 311 fans then. They love RxB and have been begging the band to bring them on a tour for about a decade now.

Uplifter and Don't Tread On Me are their softest/poppiest/mellow albums. Their latest, Stereolithic, which came out earlier this year, is indeed very, very good (it helps they're 100% indy for the...

"selfless" and "ready and willing" are two of the best songs they've ever done. Instant entries into their top 25 IMO.

Overall, probably my least fav NFG album though. The two cheap shots at Steve...

for what it's worth I was at the Tucson "futures" full album show 10/29 and they said "we're recording this performance" so yes, this news is true.

Anyone who is a Beastie Boys fan, such as myself, damn well knows they never sold their shit...

No. Start with the Blue Print. That's his defining album, his finest work. his 6th of 12 albums; the heart of his career, he was 31 when he made it. before beyonce and the mega-fame, but after...
