Sublime is a hodgepodge of all types of bands I have been into since I was a kid. Not like I mix it all up on purpose but more like it's a subconscious type of thing. As a young kid I was heavily into hardcore punk, like the Circle Jerks and Black Flag, then I first heard the ska sound from bands like The Selector and The Specials. I though this was the best music I had ever heard. Then came the rub-a-dub style of dance hall reggae music which I have never been able to get out of my head since! A little later I was into Run DMC and the whole NWA sound. I was blown away when I heard groups like Boogie Down Productions and KRS-One mixing rap and reggae. It was devastating. Without really trying I now seen to put a dance hall style lyric melody over much of my attempts at writing other types of music.

The bottom line is I love good music and I try to shy away from all these labels that people think are so necessary to slap on music. It seems like people get afraid of a certain music if they can't pigeonhole it to their satisfaction. They will be up all night trying to slap a label on Sublime. Good music is good music, and that should be enough for anybody. - Brad Nowell
