Don't Tread On Me by 311

Album: Don't Tread On MeReleased: 2005
  • This song is about emotional volatility when you feel like your freedom is being encroached upon. (thanks, Dan - Phoenix, AZ)
  • The phrase "Don't Tread On Me" comes from the Gadsden Flag, which was popular in the 1700s when America was still a colony. The Flag featured the words under a rattlesnake, and was a defiant message of independence.

I love this song and the album. 311 is a great band, and for you weird psycho people out there, 311 does not mean anything racist. It was about a police number in Omaha.Dawson - Draper, Ut
