Considered musical innovators and pioneers of the ska/reggae/punk spinoff genre. The band formed in Long Beach, California byvocalist/guitarist Brad Nowell, bassist Eric Wilson, and drummer Bud Gaugh. From virtually the band's inception to after its demise, Nowell'sdalmation, Lou Dog, would be the official band mascot. For periods in which Gaugh was in rehab, drummer Kelly Vargas filled in whennecessary.

Though the band's career was cut tragically short by the overdose of Nowell, they built a solid cult-following and reached mainstreampopularity with their third and final outing, "Sublime". Though Nowell would never live to see the entity that would be his band, his legacycontinues with the popularity of his music.

The band broke up shortly after Nowell's death, as they saw no way they could continue under the Sublime banner. The two would go on toform the Long Beach Dub All Stars, with Wilson moving on to Long Beach Shortbus a few albums later. Bud Gaugh has apparently retiredfrom professional musicianship.

However, in 2009 Sublime reformed at the Cypress Hill Smokeout festival joined by singer Rome Ramirez. Although this was a controversialmove many friends of the band agreed with the idea of paying tribute to a legend. After a lawsuit, the new version of Sublime was forced tochange their name to Sublime with Rome.
