Great stuff.
Dub influences, punk, slight third-wave ska noticible in some songs too.
Mostly punk though.

I am so hooked on "Above the Clouds" lately. I literally canot stop playing this song. But I also sense a very similar-to-Sublime thing going on. Any theory on why? Is there a connection between Slightly Stoopid and Sublime?

Slightly Stoopid founding members were from Southern Cali just like Sublime. They were even signed to Bradleys label " Skunk Records" for a short time before Bradleys passing; so yeah there is definitelyb a strong connection between the two.

Slightly Stoopid has an identical sound and image. I really just kind of wrote them off when I saw their group pictures, which looked exactly like Sublime's group pictures.

They kinda have a decent sound, but if I want to listen to Sublime I'll just listen to Sublime.

Actually, a few of their other songs started sounding like 311 to me, especially "Nobody Knows." It's like identical to "Amber" by 311. But they came way before 311, I'm assuming?

311 was around before. I don't really listen to their music, just heard a few songs here and there, but I do know they've been around longer than Slightly Stoopid.

All three bands are kinda samey in ways, but 311 just sounds way more generic to me, never could get into them.

Not identical sound, Slightly Stoopid messes around with a lot of Folk stuff and gets a lot of guest singers which Sublime rarely did. On their first few albums they had a heavy punk rock influence too, which Sublime did mess around with but not as extensively as Stoopid.

Similar? Yes. Identical, no way
