Sublime With Rome - Yours Truly (Fueled By Ramen, 2011)

Sublime With Rome - Yours Truly
Troy murmurs, "I will sue ye both."

  1. "Troy": This is clearly a reference to Troy Dendekker, former wife of fallen Sublime frontman Bradley Nowell. When surviving band members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh recruited Rome Ramirez and began touring as Sublime, Nowell's estate issued this statement: "As Brad's heirs, and with the support of his entire family, we only want to respect his wishes and therefore have not consented to Bud and Eric calling their new project 'Sublime'.... [W]ith great reluctance [we] feel compelled to take the appropriate legal action to protect Brad's legacy." The lawsuit resulted in the band's adoption of the name "Sublime with Rome," which in turn resulted in this fascinating commemorative anagram.
