are we just free-associating now

― the freakish wonder of nature that is "Beat Me" (HI DERE)

In honor of Nowell's lyrical skills.

― Ned Raggett

I just loled 4 realz.

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.

why the hell was Hoos defending this song

One of the worst songs of all time, perhaps?

I have a theory that after Nowell died, the rest of the band bumped into Colin Meloy and The Decemberists were born

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Monday, 30 April 2012 18:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

i do not possibly see where such a connection would come from, but ok. i mean, Meloy is the most horrible thing about The Decemberists, his backing band is p talented. much more so than the Sublime jokers.

why do we have so much hate when what they've got is love

i do not possibly see where such a connection would come from, but ok.

that connection came from reading this link posted by Alfred on Facebook:
http://www.theawl.com/2011/03/somehow-theres-absolutely-no-raping-on-the-decemberists-new-album

... and then rereading the lyrics I posted 3 years ago to this thread

do you ever feel like some people are fronting with this whole OMG I HATE SUBLIME shit nowadays?

While we're making tenuous comparison points, I'm just going to bring up Arrested Development, who also briefly captured the culture's imagination with warm vibes, profundities about the beauty and brevity of life, and questionable if well-intentioned politics, now mostly inspiring "HA NINETIES WHAT WAS THAT ABOUT" reflection.

lol ok, i hadn't seen that article before. now it all makes sense.

... what were Arrested Development's "questionable if well-intentioned politics"?

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Monday, 30 April 2012 18:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

while speech wasn't the junkie sex fiend nowell was, check out "warm sentiments" and "children play with earth"

are these guys better or worse than the Transplants

That's a pretty funky dance, Garfield. Show me how you do it. (frogbs), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

okay I know you're not trying to compare a song about a dude trying to process his emotions after he found out his girlfriend had an abortion and a song about being a big soppy afrocentric hippie to any of these Sublime songs because that would be really, really stupid

sorry only you can make really tenuous comparisons between bands, djp

at least I'm not being a quasi racist idiot about it

oh wtf

if you're seriously hurt that I suggested sublime and arrested development had any similarities despite the difference in their lyrical stances, i apologize

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.

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Monday, 30 April 2012 19:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

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."

da croupier, Monday, 30 April 2012 19:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

i have run into corny motherfuckers here who earnestly talk about arrested development as some shit people should be up on. :(

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...

cinco de extra mayo (loves laboured breathing), Tuesday, 8 May 2012 13:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

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).
