One of my all-time favorite bands is Sublime. Although they are no longer, I will forever love the laid-back reggae feel of their music and the humor of their lyrics. I hope you will take the time to give them a listen and find out for yourself why they became so popular.     Sublime originated in Long Beach, California, and consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals, guitar), Bud Gaugh (drums), Eric Wilson (bass guitar), and the mascot of the band, Lou Dog (a dalmation).

About this band


Sublime was an American reggae/ska/punk (a deeper exploration of the band's musical styles also include hip-hop and even some electronic music, for example their cover of Steppin' Razor) band that originated in Long Beach, California. Officially founded in 1988 (although early recordings date back to 1986), Sublime consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Bud Gaugh (drums and percussion) and Eric Wilson (bass guitar). Lou Dog was the mascot of the band. Sublime achieved mainstream success with their self-titled third album. However, Nowell died of a heroin overdose shortly before its release, resulting in the band's split in 1996. Worldwide, Sublime has sold over 17 million albums, including about 10 million in the U.S. alone. After a 13-year hiatus, Wilson and Gaugh reunited under the name Sublime in early 2009 with new singer and guitarist Rome for a one-off show at Cantino Los Tres Hobres in Nevada.

Sublime utilized a genre-blending mash-up style which incorporated elements of dub, reggae, ska, punk rock, improvised dancehall, hip hop, psychedelic rock and acoustic rock, which they developed through their live shows. The band is most usually classified as ska-punk, although likely their most prevalent influence, dub reggae, is not directly attributed in such a classification (maybe because the dub style was used on bootlegs unreleased records and live jams shows instead on mainstream albums).

Sublime's music was highlighted by bass-driven grooves,...
