The Top Ten

Definitely better than down.. But "flowing" and creatures for a while should be on here. I wish that "hey you" was on here too
Great song! Definitely one of their best!

Wish "I'll Be Here A While" was on this list as well, that is a classic song!
Great song I wish they had "Stealing Happy Hours" on here though
Recommended By Monica Dogra and it indeed is very good.

Unique song unlike any other. It's amazing and I never get sick of it. I listen to it everyday and also enjoy singing along to SA's and Nick's part.
I think this is their best song because it's so much catchier than any of their other awesome tunes dude! This tubular song is totes mcgotes the best song that you will hear by the great 311!
Trademark single of 311

3Beautiful Disaster
This is awesome and I can't stop listening this song...
Listening all day long and its composition is marvelous...
This has the best lyrics out of every 311 song, and it's also incredibly catchy and Nick's vocals are really unique and soft in this song. Down and Come Original also rule.


Very nice one and definitely better than down.. I can't stop banging my head when I listening this song.
[Newest]When I think of 311 this is the song that comes to mind. Every. Time.

4Come Original
I love this song because one of my uncles and I like to listen to it
I wish this would be number one because this is a good song from 311 and my favorite song

5All Mixed Up
"You keep me coming, That is a gal that'll kill dem stunning" this song is so cool.. my hands just moves on its own its hilarious, but damn that hands down to 311 for this chill song.
This song made me realize what type of music I wanted to listen to for the rest of my life. I was 10 years old and hadn't heard anything in my ten years that I liked until this
Its just an ALL MIXED UP song, highly recommended!

The when the guitar kicks in during the verses it makes me feel like starting a riot

7816 A.M.
Played it our wedding - they need to go back to sounds like this and not the new garbage

8Large in the Margin
This song has great lyrics, mood that fits with the great riffs. The rap also has some good lyrics. Overall, It's just a great song to listen. Oh, I forgot. The refrain has amazing harmonies too. Listening to this song will benefit you greatly. :)
Self help and motivating lyrics

best cover song I've ever heard.. it sound 10000 times better then the original


Very good and very calming indeed.

10I'll Be Here Awhile
Such a beautiful good mood song, never get sick of it
This songs gives so much happiness! Nick and SA sing there parts as if they were meant to be in the band.

The Contenders

11Sunset In July
Awesome! Song speaks for itself. It's both sad and happy.
One of their best songs. Such a feel good song
Whaat this should be number five at least

12Sometimes Jacks Rule the Realm
This was where 311 should have gone. A more 'mature' and progressive approach with the trademarks of their earlier sound shining through in the end. A magnificent hybrid. It's almost psychedelic in the that it flows to it's eventual outcome. Because of this, I think it's the best thing they did.


Has a reggae-ish style to it and never gets old to listen to.

15Don't Tread On Me

16Let the Cards Fall

The song that got me into 311 when I was younger.

One of their most unique, but still catchy songs.

19Use of Time
So spacey and deep. Love it.

20Hey You
Not only is this the best song on their Uplifter album, this is the best song on one of their best albums. Because of this, it would be considerably one of their greatest songs of all time. Harmony is a factor that 311 is very good at, which is displayed in "Hey You" very well. Overall it is a solid song.
Great opening track to uplifter

21I Told Myself

22Beyond the Gray Sky
This song is so moving, especially when played live. It is just amazing. It's like another realm when they play this live.

how is this so low?
best song I ever heard

You're all up in my mix like fckin betty crocker.


26You Wouldn't Believe

27Strong All Along
I'd say Lucky is the best 311 song, but that wasn't on this list. Strong All Along is the best out of these songs. It has such a good beat and some crafty lyrics. All yall that voted Amber are out of your minds. No offense to 311, but Amber might be their worst song ever. It's kinda boring. Chill yes, but boring as well. 311 has so much more to offer.
I'll break it down for you like this, completely unique and original feel.

28First Dimension
On new album, Stereolithic, it's just another solid track from such a great band

29Inner Light Spectrum

30No Control

31From Chaos

32Offbeat Bare Ass

33Do You Right

34Five of Everything
This song is going to be Huge

35Long for the Flowers

36Sick Tight

37Boom Shanka

This song is perfect. This kicks off your entire 311 listening experience and captures it perfectly. Love Music and Grassroots most, Blue Album has a lot of cool grooves and everything after is full of great stuff! I just love 311 and I picked this song as it is the beginning of it all!

Not their best song, but should definitely be considered as one of their better songs. I am a huge 311 fan and I understand if most other fans believe their earlier albums are way better, but Uplifter is pretty damn good, and this is one of the better songs on that album. However, it isn't the best compared to songs like "It's Alright" and "Hey You"

40Revelation of the Year

41Freak Out

42Rub a Dub
How could this not be in the top 10 list... Seriously, after all the funk they have put in it.. Just listen to the lyrics man, it would remind you of someone you had crush on and you never gave up hitting on her... Kinda reminds me of some one.. :-)
Ooh, what else can I do...
Ooh, face in a screw
Ooh, racing to prove
You never remember
The blossom sender
Still in a rub a dub style



45Omaha Stylee
Never get sick of this

46Who's Got the Herb?
This is like trying to rank money, sex, and weed... They are all #1 in my book!

47Existential Hero
The drums in this song are phenomenal. Great work, Sexton
On new album, Stereolithic

48Creatures (For a While)
Should be in the top 10! This song is so catchy!

49Made In the Shade



52Two Drops In The Ocean

53Frolic Room

54Applied Science

55F*** the Bulls***

56Feels So Good

I was so surprised not to see this on this list, an unseen gem by 311 that is always looked over. This, Hydroponic, Visit, Six, Homebrew, Salsa, Welcome, Freak Out, Taiyed and Offbeat Bare Ass are some absolute favorites off the top of my head. So yeah, pretty much anything from Music or Grassroots! Everything after is amazing too, but those albums are magnificent to me.



60Whiskey and Wine


62My Stoney Baby
A great song from 311's debut album. I actually first heard it in Harold and Kumar escape from Guantanamo Bay not knowing who sang the song. I recognized the vocals and then realized it was by 311. Found the song on youtube and I've been listening to it non-stop ever since.

63Time Bomb
Fun song to listen to and sing along. People usually don't like songs from the later albums, but this is an especially good song.

64My Heart Sings

65Too Much Too Fast
Too much too fast for the moment to last
I tumbled to you while stumbling through

66First Straw
First straw, you guys may have forgotten to add this up, come on guys this song is just as good as amber (maybe lower) but anyway the sole reason why I listen to 311 so much. thanks for such a another catchy song.. happy 3/11

67The Great Divide
On new album, Stereolithic. It's such a good jam, kinda brings me back to their older stuff but still spiced with their newer style



70Life's Not a Race
