311 has enjoyed commercial persistence stemming from its rabid fan base. Since their self-titled album in 1995, all but one of their albums have been in the top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 and have nineteen singles pick up radio airplay since "Do You Right" in 1993.
On August 16th, 2005, 311 released their eighth studio album, titled Don't Tread on Me. "Don't Tread On Me," the first single, got as high as number 2 on the Billboard Modern Rock charts and number 1 at R&R. The video achieved massive success on Fuse, MTV and VH1. The next single is titled "Speak Easy". With a hook similar to such hits as "Amber" and "Love Song", the album was a huge success. In summer 2006, the third single from Don't Tread On Me, "Frolic Room", will hit radio.
