Long Beach-natives Sublime aren't just one of the best '90s bands, but can be considered one of the best reggae bands and reggae rock bands. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Sublime albums, with the help of your votes. While most Sublime fans can agree that the Long Beach trio broke up just as they were hitting their creative stride with the release of the trio’s self-titled break through, their short career was near perfect. Led by the late Brad Nowell, Sublime’s three studio releases (including 40 Oz. to Freedom (1992) and Robbin’ the Hood (1994) captured the precise feeling of southern California in the ‘90s.

This Sublime discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Sublime albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Sublime singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums.

Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Sublime album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
