Welcome to This or That, the weekly segment here on DC9 where we stream an unmarked song and ask, simply enough, "Is this [POP BAND X] or just another crappy local band?"
Why? Because we don't think you'll be able to tell the difference between the real thing and the crappy, cheap knockoff.
Summery sounds, a Jamaican influence, just a hint of rock 'n' roll... It's all so familiar. So 311-y.
So is it? Is the track streamed below an old cut from a forgotten 311 disc? Or is this just the type of music can expect to hear around town on a given night?

C'mon. That was blatantly Nickelback. No one--and I mean no one--does crappy Nickelback better than crappy Nickelback.
