Songfacts®:

  • Founded in Long Beach, California, by vocalist/guitarist Bradley Nowell, drummer Bud Gaugh and bass player Eric Wilson in 1988, Sublime was one of the most successful and influential ska-punk bands of all time. Fueled by such radio hits as "What I Got," the group achieved worldwide sales in excess of 17 million, but disbanded following Nowell's untimely death in 1996. In 2009 Gaugh and Wilson teamed up with singer/guitarist Rome Ramirez for a series of shows. Buoyed by the extraordinarily positive response, the band embarked on a worldwide headline tour. In March 2011 the band entered the studio to begin recording their debut album, with Butthole Surfers guitarist Paul Leary producing. This is the lead single from the LP which is titled, Yours Truly.
