Miscellanea

  • In the opening of "Silver" Nick Hexum can be heard asking his German Shepherd Bobby to stop barking.
  • The phrase "stranger flowers" in "8:16AM" is a reference to the Jack Kerouac book On the Road.
  • The French lyrics in "Salsa", 'Je vais a plage parce que la guignol est chouette!', translates to 'I go to the beach because the puppet show is grand!'
  • Capricorn did not like the original album cover with the band's logo and album title placed at the bottom of the cover art. It was their opinion that people flipping through CD-store racks would not see the logo and title, and potential sales would therefore be lost. A second version of the cover placed an oversized logo and title in the middle of the picture. A third version was eventually released with the logo and title returning to their original size and placed at the top of the cover art.
  • Professional Wrestler Chris Sabin uses a watered down version instrumental of the track "Offbeat Bare Ass" as his official entrance theme music.

311 : Grassroots - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect (270 words)
Perhaps one of the 1994's most underrated releases, Grassroots artistically ignores corporate rock's temptations of conformity, which consequently threaten the possibility of mainstream airplay.
While Grassroots lacks any hit-worthy singles, it does offer plenty of highlights including the rhythmically eclectic "Omaha Stylee," the desirous sing-along "8:16 A.M.," and funky hip-hop/rock hybrid "Applied Science." The album's remaining tracks prove equally essential as they individually piece together the Grassroots puzzle, which combined provides a splendid overview of 311's signature diversity.
Despite the less-refined outturn, Grassroots remains 311's finest moment artistically, and listeners of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, and Rage Against the Machine will find this CD an indispensable addition to their music collections.
