    So, if 311 were to start doing a new cover song every tour what would you want them to play? I figured this might make a good thread.

    I was listening to

    Bad Card by Bob marley

    ...today and I thought it would make a cool song to hear SA sing.

    INXS largely fell into two positive categories for me : songs that were straight up jams by the whole band, and songs that Hutchence carried into "this song is kind of boring but also the singer makes me feel like a speck of a sexuality-oozing man by contrast".

    Never Tear Us Apart fell into a third category of "perfect storm of this band's blandness".

    Africa just so they can show Weezer up. That cover is so bland and unoriginal.

    Dramarama "Anything, Anything (I'll Give You)" i could see 311 covering this song back in the old days with their old sound, still a classic 80's song. The song mentions giving drugs, so it wouldnt happen with 311...

    What if they did What I Got but did a full band version instead of acapella?

    I don't think he knows how to play guitar, let alone the pedals required.
