Where is Brad's memorial? Is there any place where we can send money, etc.?
Brad was actually cremated, and his ashes were scattered in the surf, but there is a memorial, outside of Anaheim.
Westminster Memorial Park
(Orange County California).
South end of the park on Shakespeare Lane
Section 31, Grave 114, Marker 7

If you want to donate I would recommend The Nowell Family Foundation. This is administered by Brad's family and is raising funds to open a rehabilitation center for musicians to open in 2018. They plan to offer these services at little to no cost. Great cause and a great way to honor Brad's memory!
Right now they are selling limited edition Bradley's House t-shirts for $25, so get one before they sell out.

In the past Sublimespot.com relied on donations, however as of this time they are not

Did Sublime do a cover of No Woman No Cry, et al.?
No, the group Murder One in fact did the version of No Woman, No Cry often attributed to Sublime. Click here for more info on Sublime's other covers.
Who's this Raleigh Theodore Sakers cat?
The crazy guy from the Robbin' the Hood album. Much debate has been had over whether he's a real dude, or someone playing crazy. Click here and decide for yourself.
Why is the song called April 29th, 1992, but in the song he says April 26? What's the deal? Why are these dates important anyways?
As you may or may not know, Brad liked to dabble in the use of mind-altering substances such as drugs and alcohol. Therefore, a lot of times, you will hear him do two different version of the same song, with messed up, mixed up lyrics. There are several threads in the Lyrics section discussing this. Now as far as the actual dates and their importance goes...
April 29, 1992 a jury acquitted 3 white police officers of their involvement in the videotaped beating of a black man named Rodney King, and they reached no decision with regards to the charges against the fourth officer. During that time, the city of Los Angeles was very racially divided, and the verdict sent many people over the edge, resulting in the most damaging, widespread riots in American History. The riots happened all across the country, but L.A. was by far the worst.
Who/what is KRS-ONE? What does it stand for?
KRS-ONE is a rapper and musician. It stands for Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everything.
What does "187" mean?
"187" is police radio code for homicide.
What does heina mean? Ruca? Sancho? Mexi (Mixie)?
* Heina is Spanish/Mexican slang for your woman or girlfriend.
* Ruca is the other woman...a.k.a. the one you are cheating with.
* Sancho is your woman's other man.
* Mexi (or Mixie, depending on who you ask) was another woman Brad liked. Could be Mexi, because in Caress Me Down, he talks about a woman on the other side, i.e., the other side of the border, in Mexico.
*All of the Spanish lyrics can be found and translated on https://sublimespot.com/sublime/albums/ (Thanks Karla!)
