    Eliminate 4 from Grassroots, and 4 from the self-title. The purpose: to trim them down to 10 tracks so that we can create a "favorites" poll. The 10 for Music are settled and the poll already created.

    Here are mine.

    The Music 2:

    Welcome
    Nix Hex

    The Grassroots 4:

    Silver
    Lose
    Six
    1,2,3

    The Self-title 4:

    Guns Are For Pussies
    Brodels
    Don't Let Me Down
    Sweet


    ---


    Just gotta say that was way harder to do than last time. I practically reached in a hat.

    Looks like Loco might bite the dust. But whyyyy? It's so... ahem... eclectic.

    Misdirected hostility is one of the most under rated songs of 311s entire forever.

    I agree. The song starts off so swagtastic, and groovy. It has attitude before they even sing or rap. And I like the message.

    Lose is a solid AF track. But while many of them are enjoyable, I don't think k11 did slow, chill songs really well until Transistor. Feel free to modz that opinion, I guess I get the push back.

    I think there’s just no weeding out songs to cut from Grassroots without looking like your ears are filled with concrete. It’s an agonizing task, really, and a testament to the strength of that album. Blue was tougher than I thought it would be too.
