1. Characterized by nobility; majestic.
a. Of high spiritual, moral, or intellectual worth.
b. Not to be excelled; supreme.
2. Inspiring awe; impressive.
3. One of the greatest bands to come out of the ska revival era of the early nineties. Hailing from Long Beach California, sublime infused a mixture of hip - hop, punk rock, ska, reggae, and dub tones to make an entirely unique sound. Tragically, before the band was mature enough to experience its true fame, and be revaealed to the fanbase that it has today the lead singer (Bradley Nowell) was found dead in his L.A. Hotel after overdosing on heroin. Some of my favorite songs include, (April 29th 1992, Badfish, Caress Me Down, DJ's, Don't Push, Eye of Fatima, No Woman No Cry, I've Seen Better Days, Rivers of Babylon, Scarlet Begonias, and Doin' Time). Honestly, listen to them because they will change the way that you listen to music...

An incredible band that sounds like no other; instantly recognizable. They combine elements of reggae, punk, and ska, among others to create some great sounding songs (Date Rape, Wrong Way, Burritos, Santaria...)
Anyone can enjoy Sublime.

Amazing band that managed to fuse punk, reggae, dub, and hip-hop. Possibly the best band to come out of the '90s. Brad Nowell, the band leader, was a lyrical and musical genius who tragically died of a heroin overdose shortly before the release of their seminal self-titled album in 1996.
Sublime? Yeah, they were great. Good smoking music. Loved 40 Oz. To Freedom and Robbin The Hood.
