Default The Hate for Ska

It is weird. People at my school have intense hate for Ska. They have hardly heard any of the artists I showed them and they say all of Ska sucks really badly. I am currently debating with one of them who is a Rap fan and he makes these rediculous statments that are simply not true just to attempt to bring down Ska.
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'm not sure about the people at my school there is one person that writes off whole genres but other than that I think that not that many people really listens to Ska, besides Sublime

It's kind of funny that LTJ appeals to younger people, if you listen to the lyrics it is geared more toward people as old as me

Ska is great, but if you listen to it too much it'll all start sounding the same and drive you crazy.

That's the opinion I and most of my friends hold, anyway.
