This is one of the worst songs in history.

You sound like an asshole.

Wow, (having never heard this before) I had no idea I could hate Sublime more than I already did.

isn't there a recent(ish) 'deluxe version' of this album now available.

despite which, i still have no fucking idea who they are.

they did descendants and bad religion covers and sampled the minutemen and mobb deep and they have 2 of the 5 biggest songs in modern rock radio history and that guy died

unless youre referring to firehose, which i don't know much about, but minutemen are pretty much the band sublime wanted to be so badly but instead they became posthumous millionaires. minutemen was a more depressing story though because they were amazing and were one of the rare 80's punk bands who didn't hate each other, whereas sublime at their best was just pretty good. they're both kinda sad stories though.

yeah totally. i took a lot of crap here a couple years ago for pointing out that Sublime are probably the most audibly Minutemen-influenced band out of all the well known bands that claim the Minutemen as an influence: Did you buy a Sublime album in the '90s?

some dude, Tuesday, 17 April 2012 20:11 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah i hear some similarities.. both bands refer to themselves in their songs.. the guitar solos are sometimes kinda similar. sublime pulled from lots of bands though, but minutemen does stand out as one of the biggest influences..

billstevejim, Tuesday, 17 April 2012 20:24 (five years ago) Permalink

that in itself is another similarity, since both bands pulled from so many places..
sublime covering grateful dead and bad religion on the same album makes just as much sense as minutemen covering van halen CCR & steely dan..

i dont hear the slick rick sample

It's more the vocal melody isn't it?

Can't believe it's been 20 years since we were three days before the LA riots.

just read the Perry Farrell bio where they talk about actually being high on crack and going out looting and shooting things up.

I haven't heard enough Sublime to say either way what their "influences" are but regionally there's a strong sense of history out there so it would make sense for them to do bad religion (claremont & l.a. iirc) and descendants (manhattan beach) covers both in terms of sort of marking ground & in terms of indicating who cleared space for them - when those bands you're citing were playing clubs, there weren't many clubs, and the places they broke ground in would have been the places that kids from around there either went to or saw from their parents' cars or read about in the paper & thought "damn someday i'm going to go to those places and play music there"

lol heard this song on the radio today

xpost, yeah but what also made them interesting is that they combined descendent/bad religion covers with grateful dead and toots & the maytalls covers and Eazy E/Just-Ice samples

suidavyvan eht nioj (Whiney G. Weingarten), Friday, 27 April 2012 01:06 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah again I don't know anything about them musically but that just makes intuitive sense - a new generation of punk kids got into rap & were buying Ruthless 12"s & tapes at swap meets when those guys would have been first drinking beer in the garage and teaching themselves to play. really deeply syncretic moment in music out there, cf also Body Count who people don't seem to rep for but it was part of this ~mood~ imo that there were points of contact between scenes/styles/movements

a mood which I'd argue is less likely to get traction now because of the internet & the way growth at a local level, while still possible, is something you have to fetishize & consciously pursue as opposed to a bunch of guys in southern California sifting through the shit that's come across their radar that's interesting to them
