Wrong Way" is a song from Sublime's self-titled third album which fits squarely within the punk rock-inspired third wave ska movement of the 1990s.
The lyrical content of the song refers to the life of a girl, named Annie, who was forced into prostitution by her family of "seven horny brothers" and her "drunk-ass dad." She is soon rescued from a life of prostitution by the narrator of the song; an ironic twist is added in the lyrical references hinting that the narrator saved her and then regreted mistreating her himself. A video was made starring Bijou Phillips, soon after the band's lead singer, Bradley Nowell, died. The video also features a cameo by Mike Watt of the bands Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Dos, and many others. Mike Watt was one of the biggest influences on bass player Eric Wilson.
