Sublime release 40oz. to Freedom
40oz. to Freedom is the 1992 debut album by the Southern California ska-punk band Sublime.
40oz. to Freedom received mixed critical reviews upon its first release, but has earned an improved public perception since. Sublime would not achieve any mainstream success until the release of their eponymous album, two months after the overdose death of their lead singer and guitarist, Bradley Nowell, in 1996 (see 1996 in music). The name references the 40 oz malt liquor bottle.
