  • Sublime

    Sublime rose from the California hardcore-punk scene of the late ‘80s but came to define the popular ska-punk genre in the ‘90s. After building up a strong local following around Long Beach, they released their debut album, 40 Oz. to Freedom, in 1992 on their own Skunk Records. The more experimental Robbin’ the Hood followed in 1994. While these albums earned Sublime moderate success, it was their third album, the eponymous Sublime, that was their mainstream breakthrough. Released in 1996, it features the alt-rock radio hits “What I Got,” “Santeria,” and “Wrong Way.” Unfortunately this success would come after frontman Bradley Nowell’s fatal overdose. Listening to Sublime’s unique blend of ska, reggae, dancehall, punk, acoustic rock, and hip-hop on vinyl is like kickin’ back on the beach in the LBC.
