“Sublime with Rome (Is Not the Same Thing as Sublime)”
(featuring Roger Lima and Suburban Legends)

music by MC Lars, Watt White and Suburban Legends
lyrics by MC Lars and Watt White

VERSE 1:

Summer time and promoters get sleazy
Summer time, corporate bands get greedy
When they play arena shows with $7 bottle waters
A whole week’s paycheck to take your son or daughter
Dead Kennedys, bought a ticket to see Jello,
But he wasn’t there and I was like, “Hello?”
Kill kill kill the poor punk rock anthem
Then I went to see Sublime and I was like, “Damn son!”

CHORUS:

Sublime with Rome is not the same thing as Sublime
Sublime with Rome was depressing and did not feel right
(It’s not the same! It’s not the same!)
The “with Rome” part was printed too small
(I saw the name, I’m not to blame)
I thought it might be cool, but I was wrong

VERSE 2:

I paid fifty bucks to go and see the Wu,
But ODB’s son kept missing all the cues
Plus Raekwon’s mic kept going in and out
When did ripping off the fans become what music was about?
A Nirvana reunion? They never would do it
because the band was Kurt and everyone knew it
When MCA died yo the Beastie Boys said, “That’s it we’re done
Now make some noise!” (You know!)

CHORUS:

Sublime with Rome is not the same thing as Sublime
Should have stayed at home or at least been charged 1/3rd the price
(It’s not the same!)
It seemed like a good idea at the time you know
(It’s not the same!)
they’re down to only one original guy

BRIDGE:

My seat is miles from the stage sitting up in the back row
Rome was born in ’88 so now I’m feeling hella old
the Dalmatian’s spots seem painted on this band I’ve always meant to see
Live Nation Santeria on my adolescent memories

Just like the Misfits (it’s not the same)
Or Guns N’ Roses (it’s not the same)
or Black Flag (it’s not the same)
Posthumously half-reunited bands are so disappointing!

CHORUS:

Sublime with Rome is not the same thing as Sublime
Sex Pistols, Alice in Chains, it pains me that they can’t retire
(It’s not the same! It’s not the same!)
It’s not the same thing as Sublime
(It’s not the same! It’s not the same!)
It’s not the same thing as Sublime

Well at least their tour t-shirts are reasonably priced.
