Default whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!?!?!?!

i'm confused as to why, how... mike d and nick hexum don't get along.
It's really hard for me to understand both being music idols to me.
what happened that made them dislike each other?
anyway if you've got nothing nice to say... then please, say nothing.

311 used to be my second favorite band. I saw them live once, and they were incredible, but for whatever reason I stopped listening to them almost completely after that show... 17 years ago(?)

Anyways, when i saw Mike D make fun of 311 (where did I see that? I don't know but it was recently.) I was a little surprised. And maybe a little hurt ( i mean my favorite band was saying my old second favorite band's music is "terrible". )

Am I misremembering this: The "Rhyme & Reason tour" started w/ a survey on the BB website asking who we would want to see share a bill w/ the Bboys.

Rage
311
Cypress Hill
Somebody Else

(I voted for Rage)

So his comment seemed weird and kind of mean for no reason at all. What is new information to me in this post was the part of Hexum hating Mike. I hadn't heard that... I mean Mike called them "Great guys. Their music is terrible though."

The end.

Arrow Re: whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!?!?!?!

Here's what I THINK the issue is (pure speculation on my part). I don't know if there's any personal beef there but I'm pretty sure I've heard Mike (and maybe other Beasties or affiliates) basically say they're not into 311's music.

This makes a LOT of sense to me if you view 311 through the spectrum of somebody who's heavily into hip hop (which the Beasties were and are). To hip hop "heads", 311 comes off as a rock band who is sticking its toe in hip hop waters. They rap, but they don't really seem to be ingrained in the hip hop culture. You had a whole string of "rap rock" bands getting play in the early to mid 90s, Limp Biscuit, Sublime, etc., and they were "rapping" but they're not really flowing like an MC would be expected to flow per hip hop standards. My take was always that the college alternative crowd (who didn't really know shit about rap) loved 311, but I don't remember 311 ever getting embraced or even mentioned in the hip hop world. You weren't seeing 311 in Source magazine or anything like that. Red Alert and Kid Capri were not playing their records. Most hip hop fans in the 90s (that I knew) resented 311 because they came off as trying to capitalize on hip hop without paying dues. Now, I'm not saying any of this is true or fair. I seriously doubt 311's critics ever listened to much of their music. They just seemed like outsiders based on the way they were trying to rap and therefore pigeonholed as the white dudes trying to make a buck off of rap music.

The Beasties, on the other hand, were eventually able to ride that line between punk rock and rap really well. They were originally a hardcore band, but they also knew how to flow on the mic and paid their dues. You're not going to hear many hip hop godfathers saying 311 were great MCs, but you'll hear people like Run DMC, Jay Z, Chuck D, etc. give much respect to the Beastie Boys. So you have bands like 311 come on the scene in the mid 90s and the alternative college rock scene is lumping them in with the Beastie Boys, but the hip hop world looks at 311 as exploiting the culture. This is a sore spot wit the Beasties who've been accused of the same thing but are finally getting their due respect. I wonder whether the Beasties were so close to that line themselves that they didn't want to be associated with 311, Limp Biscuit, etc. because it would shed bad light on them.

The other thing is that I assume the Beasties felt like these "rap-rock" bands were biting their style. The Beasties music organically grew into a mesh of punk, rap and soul styles that worked really well. It almost seemed like things naturally fell into place and they created new styles by being themselves. So, when Check Your Head blew up and it seemed like every rock band wanted to rap and have a DJ now (because that's what was considered "cool" at the time) I'm sure the Beasties felt like these rap-rock acts were biting their stuff.

So, there's my theory anyway.

microdic.. hahaha fuck off

sir scratchalot .. alright.. i grew up with both beasties and 311.. i graduated high school in 96, anyway, and never really compared the two bands it's like adidas and puma or whatever...the grassroots album is maybe my favorite.. they fast tracked and then they went pop or light and cheesy hard rock ..whatever.. still good one or two songs on an album but 311 just not doing it for me these days.. i was still listening to beasties who do it to it for me every time ... except for the last album.. a few good songs but ... anyway hey wtf.. i just love them both more than alot so... nothin else matter. what happened to metallica?

I don't know if there were any problems before, but the first time I remember hearing about any problems with 311 was from this vulture interview:

http://www.vulture.com/2018/03/mike-...versation.html

Whatís the worst-case scenario?
Not that itís ever happened, but my fear would be that someone would be like, You love those guys, right?Ē Iím sure theyíre nice people ó [their music] isnít my cup of tea.

And it's just an off hand comment, I don't know if it was direct shots being fired.

In high school and college years I really liked 311, although I haven't found myself going back and listening to their stuff as much as some other bands, and certainly don't listen to them as much as Beasties, but I was a bit shocked when Mike D said that.
I agree with Sir SkratchaLot's theory though.

lol, 311 was a 90ís gimmick and did not stand the test of time.
Them and sublime get cornier and cornier as time passes.

This was a non-thing and then became a very minor thing. Mike D literally said 311 are not his cup of tea and thatís pretty much it.

Itís a funny non issue. If you look up beastie Boys on google or maybe iTunes, it will suggest 311 as a similar artist or end up in a ďyou might likeĒ category.

TLDR:
Mike D makes music for librarians AND burly jocks.
Settle down 311 guy



Long Burn The Fire. Rest In Peace Adam.

They were not hip hop to me, or trying to cash in. They fell into (amazingly diverse) groups like Mr Bungle, Camper Van Beethoven, and Urban Dance Squad who were cross pollinating. Memories... Love them.

I don't think that I have bothered to see what any of those guys have been up to for over 20 years, but I enjoyed it at the time.
