(adj) to be outstanding; very good
synonyms: awesome, incredible, great

(n) a unique band from Long Beach, California which blends elements of reggae, ska, punk and hip-hop, releasing various cd's, but with only 3 mainstream cd's, the most popular being the self-titled 1996 album Sublime, which, unfortunately, the leadsinger, Brad Nowell, died before it made a great amount of money. Obviously, they were correct in naming themselves "Sublime"for their talent and ability to stand out, but took lyrics of previous bands, intentionally to show their audience what they clearly liked and were influenced by.
Sublime is a great band.

The sublime view of the sunset is beatiful.

Sublime is a band within so many genres of music that you can't even describe it. Bradley James Nowell, "brad," died of a heroin overdose in his hotel room hours after a concert on may 25, 1996. His dog, Lou Dog, died a year later. Sublime was and is and always will be one of those bands that you can relate to no matter what mood you're in. I know so much about bradley it's pathetic. RIP brad.
