Sublime – “Don’t Push”

Sublime and skateboarding go hand in hand. If you were a skater ripping up the streets back in the ’90s, chances are that you were doing so to the elaborately cadenced sounds of Sublime. While the Southern California natives incorporated the West Coast skate culture into a few of their jams, on the 1992 track “Don’t Push” off of their debut album, lead singer Bradley Nowell at one point compares his life situation to skating. “I want a lover. I can't find the time. I want a reason. I can't find the rhyme. And I want to start some static, but I can't afford. Just lay on the ground like I fell off my skateboard.”
