The first time I heard of 311 was in 8th grade. My friend and I were talking to a guy I liked and he mentioned them being one of his favorite bands. Shortly after, I looked them up on the internet and listened to their music. Their album From Chaos had just been released in 2001 which featured this track along with a well-known single called “Amber.”
Even though it’s been nearly ten years since middle school, whenever I hear 311 I still think of him and our mutual friend who moved to New York shortly after I began high school.
This is an acoustic version of “I’ll Be Here Awhile.” Sorry about the quality, it was the only live acoustic one I could find.
