The first 1/3 of the self-titled album are fucking excellent. Really, there's nothing wrong with Sublime except their fans.
It was their self-titled third album that appealed to all the douches and frat boys. Before that, the Sublime fans were hippies, punks, and druggies. Yes, their mainstream album was still good, even though Brad was dead when it came out, but their first is the one I go back to. They owned that Dead cover of Scarlet Begonias. Their second album was bizarre at best, but has some classics, including a song with Gwen Stefani, which I think came out before No Doubt hit it big.
The self-titled is their most popular? I always thought it was 40oz, but then again I was 5 when it came out so it's not like I have a frame of reference for the time.
Either way, 40oz is by far my favourite and it probably cracks my top 50 albums of the ever. I think it's still in my glove box; I know what I'm listening to on the way home. HG is right though, people who call themselves huge Sublime fans are generally not my favourite people.

Some of my greatest teenage memories happened while listening to Sublime, specifically 40oz to Freedom. I agree with Davers, that album would be on my list of greatest albums ever too. I mean what other band could cover The Grateful Dead and Bad Religion on the same album and have it work that well? I remember when Bradley died, then their self titled album came out and they started playing it on MTV and the douchers at school started listening to it. It was all down hill from there.
Tl;dr: kids these days don't know Sublime like we knew Sublime.
Their second album was bizarre at best, but has some classics, including a song with Gwen Stefani, which I think came out before No Doubt hit it big.
Raleigh's soliloquy is some of the craziest shit ever recorded and makes that album worth listening to every time. To this day, my friends and I debate whether that was scripted or legitimate insanity. I vote for the belt sander; you just can't write that kind of crazy.
I like Sublime. My favorite album is 40 oz. There is nothing better than playing that album and chilling. I'm not one of those sublime fanboys that drives around pooping garden grove and thinks Rome started the band..
