The opening track from Omaha, Nebraska reggae rockers 311's 10th studio album, Universal Pulse
is a direct thank you to their fans. Vocalist Nick Hexum
told Artist Direct
: "It says, 'Let me introduce you to the excitable crew.' A long time ago, I had thrown out something like, 'This one is dedicated to the excitable ones.' Some of our fans call themselves that. '311 Nation' is a bigger name for all of our fans, but a certain crew of hardcore fans is known as 'The Excitable Ones.' The chorus opens with a shout to them because we realize they've enabled us to do what we do, and it's a thank you to them."
