Badfish is a tribute band dedicated to playing the music of Sublime. The group is named after a song appearing on the album 40 Oz. to Freedom. Formed in 2001 at the University of Rhode Island, the group's members, who were computer science majors, began playing local Rhode Island clubs and quickly began selling out shows. They continued touring the East Coast and Midwest of the U.S., becoming popular on college campuses among Sublime fans who never were able to see the band due to Bradley Nowell's 1996 death. Since then the group has done multiple national tours per year. In 2008, the band was nominated for Best Tribute Act in the Boston Music Awards.

Badfish band played 152 shows across the United States in 2006, selling just under 100,000 tickets and grossing $1.4 million in sales. Members of the group also play in a non-tribute act called Scotty Don't, which sometimes acts as the opener at Badfish shows. The band played at the Hoodwink festival in New Jersey in 2009.
