Song Name: April 19, 1992
Album: Sublime Self-Titled
Run Time: ???
This track was one of many songs by different artists that tried to articulate the events of the 1992 riots in L.A. resulting from the Rodney King police beating verdict. The song also proved to be one of Sublime's most powerful anti-authority songs, especially when quoting the Snoop Doggy Dogg line "187 on a motherfuckin' cop."
Included in the song are actual police scanner sounds from that night, recorded by Miguel off of his neighbor's police scanner.
"La Di Da Di" by Doug E. Fresh & Mc Ricky D is sampled.
There is also an alternate version of this song on the Second Hand Smoke album. This version includes the "Gimme My Share" freestyle that Sublime has performed live.
