Sublime were a 3 piece band from Long Beach Ca. They were just beginning to break, when their lead singer/writer/guitarist, Brad Nowell, died of a heroin overdose in 1996. This song is a take on Gershwins “Summertime.” I normally am not a big fan of sampling, but I love what they did with this. Brad could put a melody to a monkey fart if he felt like it. The guy was amazing. The bass player and drummer also kick ass. One of the most under-rated bands of the 90’s, probably due to their erratic live shows, as Brad was usually drunk or high. I got to see them about 2 or 3 months before he died, and while the show was rough, the crowd sang/shouted along to every song, almost drowning out the band.
