Founded in Long Beach, CA, in 1988, Sublime was one of the most successful and influential ska-punk bands of all time up until the death of frontman Bradley Nowell of a drug overdose. Radio hits "What I Got" and "Santeria," helped the band achieve 5x-platinum status for their self-titled album released in 1996.
