Sublime had only three full studio albums, ''40oz. to Freedom'', ''Robbin’ the Hood'', and ''[[SelfTitledAlbum Sublime]]'', before Bradley Nowell’s overdose and death from heroin. The third, final, and most successful album was released less than two months after Bradley’s death. According to TheOtherWiki ''Sublime'' eventually went 5x Platinum in the U.S. If you were in high school or college in the mid to late 90s, you probably remember the self-titled album spinning endlessly at almost every party, and in everyone's CD collection. Seriously, punks, metalheads, classic rock fans, jocks, dorks, EVERYONE had this album. It may even be reasonably argued that, were it not for Nirvana's "Nevermind," "Sublime" might very well be remembered as the album that defined the '90s. At the very least, it's somewhere on the list.

* {{Motormouth}}: Nowell can rip through a verse pretty quickly, but the duet "Saw Red" with Gwen Stefani is a great example for both singers.

Sublime consisted of [[AuthorExistenceFailure the late]] [[FaceoftheBand Bradley Nowell]] on lead vocals and guitar, [[TheQuietOne Eric Wilson]] on bass guitar and sometimes keyboards, and Floyd “Bud” Gaugh on the drums, with a few of their friends appearing on multiple albums in various capacities. Most notably: [[HospitalHottie Dr Todd Foreman]], the saxophonist; "Field" Marshall Goodman (also known as Ras MG) providing DJ duties, occasional rap solos, and filled in as drummer during Bud Gaugh’s stint in rehab; Kelly Vargas, who also filled in on drums while Bud was unavailable; and Opie Ortiz, who not only sang on various albums, but was the band’s favorite tattooist, and behind most of the artwork on their albums. Oh, and [[TeamPet Louie]] [[ABoyandHisX Dog]], Bradley’s beloved Dalmatian, who frequently joined the band on stage.

Known for their combination of laid back surfer attitude and punk mentality, Sublime is very hard to pin down. Any song can be a delightful mash up of punk, hip-hop, and reggae, with lyrics that make you laugh even as you think, [[RefugeinAudacity "Did he really just say that?"]] before switching to sobering reality about drug use, life in the ghetto, and sexually transmitted diseases. Although Sublime became popular as apart of the Third Wave of {{Ska}} and often toured with SkaPunk bands, Sublime only released a handful of actual SkaPunk songs, and were more influenced by reggae than ska music.

The band would continue to record, [[TheAlcoholic drink]], tour, [[OdetoIntoxication drink]], cause serious mayhem, and [[OverlyLongGag drink]], on the West Coast for the next several years. They even started their own record label, Skunk Records, to distribute their albums, which they famously did out of the trunks of their cars.

The band eventually gained serious recognition on the original Warped Tour in 1995. They were kicked off the tour [[{{Irony}} due to bad behavior]]. Bud Gaugh was arrested for drug possession twice on tour, all three were pretty much constantly drunk, the band once started a mud slinging fight with their audience, but the final straw was when Louie Dog bit two fans. They were invited back to finish the tour after missing several shows.

* ABoyAndHisX: Bradley and Louie Dog. Bradley wrote a song "Lou Dog Went to the Moon". When Louie was stolen, Bradley was inconsolable... he laid on his couch for about a week and cried. He sang "Lou Dog Went to the Moon" into his answering machine and finished the message begging for any information on his dog.

** Bradley missed Louie Dog so much during the first Warped Tour that he had him flown in for the East Coast tour dates.
** After Bradley died, Louie Dog more or less became the Face of the Band and appeared in all their subsequent music videos. When Louie Dog died several years after Nowell, the family buried a vial of his ashes at Nowell's grave, and scattered the rest at the same surf spot they scattered Bradley's. To this day, Sublime with Rome sells Louie Dog shirts at concerts.

* SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll: The band really lived it up in the 1990's. Stories include drummer Bud Gaugh missing shows due to being arrested ''on the way'' to the show, Bradley Nowell pawning the band's equipment right before shows for drugs, and getting kicked off the original Warped Tour [[{{Irony}} ''for bad behavior'']].

* {{Sampling}}: Sublime LOVED sampling. Most songs feature at least a little something 'borrowed' from somebody else.

The band seemed over until December 2009, when Eric and Bud reunited with new lead singer Rome Ramirez. The new trio was well received by [[BrokenBase most fans]] and various members of Bradley Nowell’s family. The main objection was who legally owned the name Sublime. After a little legal haggling the band was redubbed Sublime with Rome.

The main objection was who legally owned due to the fact that the name Sublime."Sublime" was copyrighted only under Brad Nowell's name, leaving it the property of his estate (read: his widow). This might also result in some conflict over rights to profits turned from sales of merchandise. After a little legal haggling the band was redubbed Sublime with Rome.
