List RulesThis list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

311 is known as one of the best reggae rock bands of all time. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best 311 albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in Omaha, Nebraska in 1988, 311 broke into the music industry with two independently released LPs, Dammit! (1990) and Unity (1991) before they signed with Capricorn Records and eventually released 311 (1995), also known as "The Blue Album" which earned them their first platinum-selling release.

This 311 discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top 311 albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included 311 singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest 311 album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite 311 album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

This list below has a variety of albums, like Transistor (1997) and From Chaos (2001), in it. This list of popular 311 CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
