Sublime, ‘Date Rape’ – Disturbing Songs People Love

Sublime, '40oz. to Freedom'
Skunk

In what almost seemed like a musical contradiction, Sublime released a lively ska-reggae-punk single about date rape in 1991.

Narrating the story of an unfortunate woman and her monstrous attacker, singer Bradley Nowell croons, “Come on babe it’s your lucky day / Shut your mouth, we’re gonna do it my way / Come on baby don’t be afraid / If it wasn’t for date rape I’d never get laid.” Luckily, the rapist gets his comeuppance in the end at the track’s finish. “They locked him up and threw away the key / Well, I can’t take pity on men of his kind / Even though he now takes it in the behind.”
