The Top Ten
1 Amber

Definitely my favorite song by 311. The first time I heard this song, I was instantly in love with it. This is what I think of when I think of 311.

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!

Definitely better than "Down." But "Flowing" and "Creatures for a While" should be on here. I wish that "Hey You" was on here too.

2 Down

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 totally the best song that you will hear by the great 311!

Unique song, unlike any other. It's amazing, and I never get sick of it. I listen to it every day and also enjoy singing along to SA's and Nick's parts.

The guitar part is so easy and fun to play. Just overall an amazing song!

3 Beautiful Disaster

This has the best lyrics out of every 311 song, and it's also incredibly catchy. 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 listen to this song.

This is awesome, and I can't stop listening to this song. I listen all day long, and its composition is marvelous.

4 All Mixed Up

"You keep me coming, That is a gal that'll kill dem stunning." This song is so cool. My hands just move on their own. It's hilarious, but damn, 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.

5 Come 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.

6 Homebrew

When the guitar kicks in during the verses, it makes me feel like starting a riot.

7 Love Song

Very good and very calming indeed.

8 Don't Tread on Me

Great riff, one of their best. I'm not sure why it was overlooked. The chorus and breakdown are awesome rocking music!

9 Large in the Margin

This song has great lyrics and a mood that fits with the great riffs. The rap also has some good lyrics.

Overall, it's just a great song to listen to. Oh, I forgot. The refrain has amazing harmonies too. Listening to this song will benefit you greatly.

10 Sunset in July

Awesome! The song speaks for itself. It's both sad and happy.

One of their best songs. Such a feel-good song.

The Contenders
11 Lose
12 Purpose
13 Creatures (For a While)

Way too low for a crowd favorite at concerts!

Should be in the top 10! This song is so catchy!

14 I'll Be Here Awhile

This song gives so much happiness! Nick and SA sing their parts as if they were meant to be in the band.

15 Champagne
16 Flowing

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

17 816 A.M.

Played it at our wedding. They need to go back to sounds like this and not the new garbage.

18 Hive

It's their hardest and heaviest song that I've heard, at least. This song gets you hyped.

You're all up in my mix like Betty Crocker.

19 Too Much to Think
20 Hey You

Not only is this the best song on their Uplifter album, but it is also the best song on one of their best albums. Because of this, it would be considered 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.

21 Made In the Shade
22 Sever
23 You Wouldn't Believe
24 Sometimes 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 way that it flows to its eventual outcome.

Because of this, I think it's the best thing they did.
