Don't Tread On Me resonates sound and energy the 311 way. Despite the brooding attitude of the grunge movement and the angst of the rap-rock movement, 311 has always stayed true to their own approach and their underlying message of unity and positivity. Because of their unique sound (mixing rock, hip-hop, reggae & funk), and because they have always maintained a balance of hard rocking songs and melodic, mellow gems the band has developed a rather diverse fan base from rock fans, punk fans, jam-band fans, pop fans, hip-hop fans to reggae fans, etc. BMG. 2005.
