It’s incredible that throughout their 23 year span, the band has only encountered one lineup change, replacing original guitarist Jim Watson with Tim Mahoney in 1991.

311 has released 10 studio albums, including their latest release Universal Pulse. They’re also known for their annual Unity Tour, which has featured bands like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Sublime With Rome[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Slightly Stoopid[/lastfm] in recent years. They’re best-known for their self-titled released, which had songs like “Don’t Stay Home,” “Down” and “All Mixed Up.”
