I play guitar in a metal band, but I'm also interested in picking up a budget bass good for sublime type music, anyone have any suggestions?
You can't go wrong with a Fender bass, they're pretty standard for modern contemporary music.

Yamaha Acoustic Guitar
Vox AD30VT w/ VFS2
Roland Cube 30 Bass
Modded "St. Louis" Wah
Dunlop .88 Tortex picks
fender jazz, fender p bass, you really can't go wrong with fender. they are good for literally everything.
i'd go P over J in this instance. eric used a J bass on 40 oz to freedom and i think his tone is ... eh ...
yeah i would go for either a P bass or a jazz bass. but to be honest almost any bass will do for this kind of music

agreed pretty much any bass is good, its the TONE that makes this type of music different, very low-end heavy, not so much midrange on your amps EQ, you are not going for that punk "twangyness" you want the bass tight and punchy.
RIP lowlife (fort wayne) the best crappy crusty punk band ever!
