[Lists] My Top 10 Sublime Songs

bradleynowell 2 [Lists] My Top 10 Sublime Songs

If you’re a KROQ fan, there’s a good chance you’re a [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sublime[/lastfm] fan. We go together like peas and carrots, Kate and William, coffee and morning.

If explaining the cause for this post is unnecessary for you, go ahead and turn to the list. If not, then all you need to know is Sublime made a track titled “April 29, 1992 (Miami),” in reference to the eruption of riots that occurred in Los Angeles on said date.  Even though it may be the 30th by the time this post goes up, there’s never a wrong reason to listen to some Sublime.

The lyrics actually say “April, 26 1992,” so don’t trip up your stoned self.  Bradley is not trying to reach you via stereo. Or is he?

Here’s my top 10.  What’s yours?

“Don’t Push”

“Doin’ Time/Summertime”

“Pawn Shop”

“Garden Grove”

“Superstar Punani”

“What I Got”

“Smoke Two Joints”

“Date Rape”

“40 oz To Freedom”

“April 29, 1992”

  • Rick

    Badfish and Santeria are definetely the top 2 Sublime songs!

    Whats your opinion of the new “Sublime with Rome”? i think Rome is pretty talented but i am undecided about the whole thing. I dunno maybe they should have just picked a new band name altogether.

    • Derek | Phone-Op

      I will admit I was hesitant when I initially heard of Sublime with Rome, but I was very impressed with them at last year’s Weenie Roast. VERY impressed.

    My Top Ten Sublime songs:
    1) Badfish
    2) Smoke Two Joints (Check out The Toyes’ original version of this song sometime… it roqs!)
    …sorry that’s all I have. Nothing against Sublime; I know they have a ton of hits, it’s simply these two that work for me.

    Big props to Matt “Money” Smith for “discovering” these guys as they have been such a staple on the Roq for sixteen(!) years.

    When “Date Rape” was “New K-Roq Music,” I remember Sluggo (aka: Slugcedes Benz; aka: Baron Von Slug; aka: Ignatius Verapamil; aka: Slutto; aka: SlugMonkey) talking about the (fictional) “un-edited, long version of this song that goes into waaaaay more detail than YOU’d want to hear about what happened in the jail cell.”

    How could you have a top 10 without Badfish? But it does make me happy when I hear Sublime on KROQ, I have lived in other cities and they don’t have the same respect for Sublime. KROQ always makes me feel at home when I hear the so cal sound of Sublime. Thanks for keeping the spirit of Sublime alive! I was happy to see Garden Grove on your list, I always think it doesn’t get the respect it deserves. Also Caress Me Down is great too.

  • Chris

    No songs from Robbin’ the Hood, Derek? You should have listed either “Greatest Hits” or “Saw Red”.

    • Derek | Phone-Op

      Dig both! Just not in my personal top 10. Everyone has their favorites right?

    Sublime with Rome certainly isnt sublime. But Rome is honestly one of the greatest performers iv seen, when i saw them on 4/20 last year and weenie roast, they were straightup incredible. It might not be sublime, but it is honestly the next best thing. cant wait till august 20th for 311 and my favorite homies Sublime with Rome. if i had the money, id go vip in a heartbeat.
