EDITORS’ NOTES

Sublime’s defiant, DIY-driven debut paved the way for SoCal’s ‘90s ska-punk explosion. Via a bong-fueled mix of languorous riddims, rocksteady madness, and slick hip-hop samples, the Long Beach dwellers forged a soundtrack for insouciant rebellion. They display loose morals on the skanky “Smoke Two Joints,” share tales of hookups on the stripped-down “Waiting for My Ruca,” and celebrate debauchery over supple reggae basslines in “Badfish”—all in all, an unruly mission statement for a rowdy counterculture.

LBC

Yesterday, I found myself outside of Floyd’s Barbershop in Long Beach California. On the back wall of where the parking is is a mural dedicated to the band with the words ‘life’s too short so love the one you got’ written below the Long Beach letters. This is just down from Chronic Taco Shop owned by Jason Acuna (of Jackass) and across from the Veterans pier. I tell you the band generated a huge sense of community here in LBC. One of the greatest albums ever recorded. Still fun to listen to after all these years.

An Absolute Masterpiece

The title is not an exaggeration. It's actually quite an understatement.
