Formed in 1988 as a garage punk band, Sublime rose to fame in the mid-’90s on the back of the California punk explosion engendered by Green Day and the Offspring, though Sublime boosted their punk influences with heavy elements of reggae and ska. The band released only two albums during its first seven years, and finally found mainstream success with a self-titled release in 1996. It proved to be Sublime’s last proper album, however, as lead singer Brad Nowell died in May 1996, just two months before the record’s release.
