Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

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.
