I love Less than Jake but you're right their alittle bit of punk alittle bit of ska in my opinion I guess. My oldest brother was into ska when he was in high school and being the youngest and only girl I remember stealing all his cds and listening to them, all my brothers liked ska at one point and one of them had an Aquabats cd, and I just found it again, has anyone listened to them?

I'm not trying to be clever. I just strongly feel that the Jamaican roots of the music should never be forgotten. Ska did NOT start in late 1970s Britain (though all those bands were good and it was them that got me into ska). A lot of the modern so-called ska bands are more punk than ska. Nothing wrong with that, but it could lead people to think that ska is just punk with a horn section. Okay so I'm a traditionalist.

i totally agree with prince burridge. i meen untill recently i did think that ska was just punk with horns untill i started getting into reggae and ska and listened to bands liek the skatalites and early wailers.

the slackers are currently my favorite ska band

mad caddies are always good.

i love catch 22 they're awesome :)

sublime isn't reggae because they're strumming consist of fast up strokes thats ska. they're more like a blend of reggae rocksteady and ska.

sublime is just too sick.
