How can anyone not like ska? Music can be so serious sometimes. It's nice to just kick back and get into tha groove.

Most people who have ska-hatred don't know even know what it is. If you ask them, I bet they'll come up with Sublime and Reel Big Fish as examples - not that they aren't ska, but people don't tend to stretch their horizons further than those bands.

It got me wondering if anyone in the world has this problem of people around you shunning Ska and not respecting it at all.

Edit: Whoops I voted for the wrong thing. I meant to be the majority of people Hate Ska. My Bad.
I live in Dubai, and here there are probably like 5 people who actually know what Ska is. In about 2008/09 we lost our best local Ska band, they all went away to University in the UK & USA. But a lot of people I'm friends with really hate it when I play ska, I don't know why but all they do is complain to turn the crap off, but that's mainly first wave stuff like The Specials and what not, but they are alright with stuff like Reel Big Fish and all the poppy fun stuff like that but stuff like Streetlight and Less Than Jake they REALLLY can't stand, it's kinda depressing cause I love listening to ALL of it, it puts me in a great mood but meh, I save it for alone time, which isn't really what ska is intended for but oh well you know...I have a few people who like it so I can skank around with them :P

Bands like The Specials are second wave Ska, not first. Let's give the Jamaican inventors of the music a little credit FFS.

Oh c'mon, what's 30 years of history? If the end results are bands like Reel Big Fish, can't we just forget about Jamaica. (Wow, I think even my warped sense of humor may have it's limits).
