Unfortunately, I don't know the names since I used to stream Pandora at work. I remember at one point realizing that 90% of Sublime songs were covers and I tended to like the originals from old school reggae artists as I came across them on Pandora.

So I guess the old school stuff, really.
90% is a bit high lol more like 15 or at highest 25% although they did do a lot of covers. Specifically on 40 oz to freedom. Robin The Hood is all original stuff and self titled one cover, "Pawn Shop"

The thing about Sublime covers too is that they always a really unique flair to them. Just listen to We're Only Gonna Die For Our Own Arrogance. Completely different than Bad Religions version.

Rappers screaming all in our ears like we're deaf
Tempt me, do a number on the label
Eat up all their MC's and drink 'em under the table
