This or That: 311? Or Just Another Crappy Local Band?

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?

You tell us...

Is this 311? Or just another crappy local band? And if the latter, which crappy local band? Let us know in the comments...

Also, for those of you patiently awaiting the results of the last time we did this (Four weeks ago? Really? That long?), well, the answer to that query's after the jump...

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