“We don’t try to write punk rock. We don’t try to write reggae. We don’t try to write ska,” Sublime said. Bradley Nowell Told KROQ in 1995. “We’re just trying to write a good song.” This is exactly what they have done, time and time again. “What I Got”, “Santeria”, “Wrong Way” and “Doin ‘Time” remain innovative staples of the alternative boom of the 90s. But they have accomplished even more: in less than a decade in the national spotlight, the relaxed Long beach The trio spawned an entire genre – fusing reggae grooves, gritty punk, ska energy, folk back porch introspection and hip-hop arrogance. Decades after the tragic death of the singer-songwriter Bradley Nowell, Sublime remains an institution: they have sold over 18 million albums to date; and their merchandise, featuring the iconic sun logo, dominates sales at retailers such as Target, Urban Outfitters and Spencer Gifts. More importantly, the music remains timeless – a rite of passage for misfit listeners who refuse to fit into the lines of the conventional genre.
