I think that's part of the appeal with this band, right?
Honestly this genre as a whole is pretty cheesy imo. Had to humor my then "not quite girlfriend" at one of their concerts this summer and it just never ended! Guess I have to thank them somewhat though, cause she appreciated it and we've been together for 6 months ha. Reggae/rap rock is honestly one of my least favorite genres, I just find it incredibly lame. Idk, I mean they def have a big following.. so I guess they're doing something right; I just don't get it.
God, this band rules. Always bummed, that this community has never fully accepted these guys, who are among the best to their fans.
Yet Stephen Jenkins could fart into a microphone and is beloved. Sigh.
Well the simple answer to this is that Third Eye Blind are a better band than 311 in my opinion, both musically, and DEFINITELY lyrically. With that being said, I love 311, but the bands really have no similarities besides both peaking in the 90's. I've met 3EB and a couple members from 311. They were all very friendly, including Stephen Jenkins. The only person who wasn't friendly in 3EB was Tony, who is no longer a member.
