"What I Got" still gots the goods. Just don't play it around me, or hold a beer glass up high with your "bros" beside you shouting the words.

good poll. the answer is NOT date rape, santeria, or the horrifyingly terrible wrong way.

voting for "Date Rape" because it seemed like a benign little 120 Minutes novelty hit back when the band still existed and weren't posthumously huge yet

Man, no wonder people hate Sublime. It's like, their whole catalog wasn't shitty, but you really wouldn't know it from their singles. Least despicable, eh? Probably "What I Got"

"Santeria". I don't know much about the fans this band has so I don't love it or hate it for that. But "Santeria" has a really catchy melody, it's easy for me to sing around the house because it's right in my range, and without knowing most of the lyrics I can just make up stupid shit that fits in well.

...

I don't practice Santeria
I ain't got no crystal ball
Well I had a million dollars but I, I'd spend it all
If I could find that heina and that sancho that she'd found
Well I'd pop a cap in sancho and I'd slap her down
What I really wanna know (ah baby)
What I really wanna say, I can't define
Well it's love that I neeeeeed
My soul will have to wait till I get back
Find a heina of my own
Daddy's gonna love one and all
I feel the break, feel the break, feel the break
And I gotta live it out
Oh yeah un-huh
Well I swear that I, what I really wanna know (my baby)
What I really wanna say, I can't define
Got love! Make it go
My soul will have to...
What I really wanna say (ah baby)
What I really wanna say, is I've got mine
And I'll make it
Yes, I'm going up
Tell sanchito that if he knows what is good for him
He best go run and hide
Daddy's got a new .45
And I won't think twice
To stick that barrel straight down sancho's throat
Believe me when I say that I got something for his punk-ass
What I really wanna know (ah baby)
What I really wanna say, is there's just one way back
And I'll make it
My soul will have to wait

Let me tell you about a girl I know
had a drink about an hour ago.
Sitting in a corner by herself in a bar in downtown Hell.
She heard a noise and she looked through the door.
And saw a man she'd never seen before.
Light skin light blue eyes a double chin and a plastic smile.
Well her eyebrow raised as he walked through the door
And took an empty seat next to her at the bar.
"My brand new car is parked right outside. How'd ya like to go for a ride?"
And she said."Wait a minute I have to think."
He said, "That's fine. May I please buy you a drink"
One drink turned into 3 or 4 and they left and got into his car
and they drove away someplace real far.

Now babe the time has come.
How'd ya like to have a little fun?
And she said." If we could only please be on our way, I will not run."

That's when things got out of control.
She didn't want to, he had his way.
She said, "Let's Go"
He said, "No Way!"
Come on babe it's your lucky day.
Shut your mouth, were gonna do it my way.
Come on baby don't be afraid,
if it wasn't for date rape I'd never get laid.

He finished up and he started the car
He turned around and drove back to the bar.
He said."Now baby don't be sad, in my opinion you weren't half-bad."
She picked up a rock.,threw it at the car, hit him in the head, now his got a big scar.
Come on party people won't you listen to me.
Date Rape Stylie.

The next day she went to her drawer, looked up her local attorney at law,
went to the phone and filed the police report and then she took the guy's ass to court.
Well, the day he stood in front of the judge he screamed, " She lies that little slut!"
The judge knew that he was full of shit and he gave him 25 years
And now his heart is filled with tears.

That night in jail it was getting late.
He was butt-raped by a large inmate, and he screamed.
But the guards paid no attention to his cries.

That's when things got out of control.
The moral of the date rape story, it does not pay to be drunk and horny.
But that's the way it had to be.
They locked him up and threw away the key.
Well, I can't take pity on men of his kind,
even though he now takes it in the behind.

That's the way it had to be.
They locked him up and threw away the key.
Well, I can't take pity on men of his kind,
even though he now takes it in the behind.

DATE RAPE

She didn't want to TAKE IT!

Early in the morning risin' to the street
Light me up that cigarette and I strap shoes on my feet
Got to find a reason a reason things went wrong
Got to find a reason why my money's all gone
But I got a dalmatian and I can still get high
I can play the guitar like a mother fuckin riot
Life is too short so love the one you got cause you might get
runover or you might get shot
Never start no static
I just get it off my chest
Never had to battle with no bulletproof vest
Take a small example
A tip from me take all of your money and give it up to charity
Lovin's what I got
It's within my reach
And the sublime style's still straight from long beach
It all comes back to you you're gonna get what you deserve
Try and test that you're bound to get served
Love's what I got
Don't start a riot
You feel it when the dance gets hot
That's why I don't cry when my dog runs away
I don't get angry at the bills I have to pay
I don't get angry when my Mom smokes pot, hits
the bottle and goes back to the rock
Fuckin and fighting it's all the same
Livin' with Louie dog's the only way to stay sane
Let the lovin come back to me

Annie's 12 years old
In two more she'll be a whore
Nobody ever told her
It's the wrong way
Don't be afraid
With the quickness you'll get laid
For your family get paid
It's the wrong way

I gave her all that I had to give
But I'm gonna make it hard to live
Salty tears runnin' down her chin
And it ruins up her makeup
They never wanted
A cigarette
Pressed between her lips
But I'm starin' at her tits
It's the wrong way
Strong if I can
But I am only a man
So I take her to the can
It's the wrong way

The only family that she's ever had
Is her seven horny brothers and a drunk-ass dad
He needed money so he put her on the street
Everything was goin' fine till the day she met me
Happy are you sad, wanna shoot your dad
I'll do anything I can, the wrong way
We talk all night
Try to make it right
Believe me shit was tight
I was the wrong way

Don't run away if you wanna stay
Cuz I ain't here to make ya
Oh no
It's up to you what you really wanna do
Spend some time in America
Dub style!

She'll give you all that she's got to give
But I'm gonna make it hard to live
Big salty tears rollin' down her chin
And it smears up her makeup they never wanted

So we ran away and I'm sorry when I say
That straight to this very day
Was the wrong way
She took a hike
Don't matter if I like it or not
Because she only wants the wrong way
I gave her all that I had to give
She still wouldn't take it- oh no!
Her big brown eyes are leakin' salty tears
And it still ruins her makeup
They never wanted

summertime and the livin's easy
and bradley's on the microphone w/ ras m.g.
all the people in teh dance will agree
that we are well qualified to represent the lb g
me and louie run to the party
dance to the riddim it gets harder
me and my girl got this relationship
i love her so bad but she treats me like...
on lock down like a penetentiary she
spreads her lovin' all over and then there's none left for me
(chorus) oh take this veil from off my eyes
a burning sun will one day rise
so what am i gonna be doin' for a wife
i guess i'll have to play it myself show them how we come off the shelf
(chorus) evil i've come to tell you that she's evil most definately
evil ornery scandalous and evil the
tension is getting hotter i'd like to hold her head underwater

They were seriously my favorite band at some point in high school. And they're still huge here in Cali. I think this goes along with the controversial "Hanging out w/ people who don't know anything about anything and are into lame shit" thread, like how so many people whose tastes haven't budged since HS. Like there are seriously so many people in NorCal who listen EXCLUSIVELY to this weird prescribed list of music that includes radio rap, Bay area rap (Mac Dre, Andre Nickatina, hyphy shit) and a couple of acceptable bro-rock bands, of which RHCP and Sublime are the cornerstones. See also the enduring popularity of Pepper and Slightly Stoopid.
I read recently on a blog someone describing a trip to his suburban hometown as a place "where tight pants are still weird and Sublime never got old," which is so OTM it hurts, even in Sacramento, which in terms of population is a pretty major urban center.

The singular sound of Sublime, alternately polished and rough and ready, finds stoner rock, rap, punk, and hip-hop funk blended with doses of ska, rock steady, dancehall, and every other pungent flavor of reggae. The result was a beautiful, warts-and-all brand of poetry - a powerful new blend of street sounds and party music. In Nowell, Sublime had an astounding singer and lyricist who created his own edgy but expressive underground vernacular. And in Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh, Sublime was fortunate to have an agile, rock-solid rhythm section that could cover the entire musical waterfront. They were musical counterparts that created their own signature rhythmic foundation, creating the ultimate canvas for Nowell to embellish.[9]

I am not hurt, and "quasi racist" was way too strong and I apologize for that. I still think calling out those two songs as suspect is incredibly strange, though.

just to clarify, i was not trying to equivocate between the inane shit nowell says about dark subjects and the inane shit speech said about dark subjects, but note that both were '90s-identified post-hiphop hippie good time groups that said inane shit about dark subjects.

And I don't think it's incredibly strange to call out songs that incoherently race bait and have a guy telling a woman who just had an abortion "after I scold U, maybe I can mold u to share your truths with me. To tell U the truth, you made a mistake."

I've never raped anyone at least as far as I can remember. We were at a party a long time ago and we were all talking about how much date rape sucked. This guy was like, "Date rape isn't so bad; if it wasn't for date rape I'd never get laid." Everyone at the party was bummed out about it, but I was cracking up and I wrote a funny song about it.[2]

I saw Fishbone last month and they covered "Date Rape" and I was like "well, it's late, I saw enough of this show to be done now" because ugh it is rough watching somebody sing "Date Rape"

there were a lot of Sublime fans in college but when they played the first album, it was more about Ruca/40 oz/Smoke Two Joints, plus the Dead and Marley covers. I dont remember people playing Date Rape all that much...

I remember a while back wanting to write an exegetical essay about Sublime and "Wrong Way" which I look back now and am glad I didn't...

Yeah, Date Rape is buried so deep in the second side of the tape, sorta at the end with the less vital tracks (the decendants cover, krs-one, thanx) and right after another of the weaker songs on the album (Ebin).
