Live is the only live album by 311. Recorded during the Transistor tour. Notable for Chad Sexton's 2 minute, 47 second drum solo during "Applied Science." The album was apparently recorded on September 17, 1997 at the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana. During "Misdirected Hostility", Hexum alters the lyric "Now it's '95 and I'm Ginseng" to "Now it's '97 and I'm Ginseng" (he uses the current year whenever playing it live) and also alters the lyric "not thee dread-locks" to "in New Orleans" at the end of "Who's Got the Herb?". At the end of "Feels So Good", SA Martinez addresses the crowd with "What's up New Orleans".
