Well I have been viewing taiyedbrodels for a while now and finally decided to join. I have been a 311 fans since 2006 and a hardcore fan since 2007 (when I saw them live). I heard about 311 through my best friend who loved the movie "50 first dates" and found out about "Love Song" and "Amber". I liked the songs too but wanted to go deeper. I started buying all there albums and loved them. This was the type of music ive been looking for (was listening too rap in high school cause of friends and grew bored of it). I finally saw them live when they came to Pensacola and loved them instantly. They also introduced me to other great bands such as Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Deftones, Expendables, (the list goes on and on.) Im so happy that this band exists, they have been my fav band for almost 10 years and I don't see that going away any time soon.
