Sublime was an intrinsic part of my upbringing in San Diego, a city that so prides itself in its sunny and mellow disposition it’s practically the encapsulation of a Sublime song. AdvertisementLike Sublime, San Diego (and other parts of Southern California) preaches the gospel of chillaxin’. And you will hear it often in the greater San Diego area. I stopped caring about what was cool, and just liked what I liked, and let others like what they liked. In many ways, it’s their ethos and the ethos of San Diego and who knows how many other towns in Southern California and beyond.
