Sublime’s “Wrong Way”

Before their self-titled breakthrough on MCA, the three members of Sublime had spent years in the Southern-California punk and ska scene, releasing the raw 40 Oz to Freedom [Skunk] and the more dub-influenced Robbin’ the Hood [MCA] in the early ’90s. But 1996’s Sublime cemented the band’s cult status. Released just months after singer/guitarist Bradley Newell’s drug-related death, the album became a massive hit, with songs such as “Wrong Way,” “What I Got,” “Santeria,” and “Doin’ Time” implanting themselves on college radio playlists.
