I haven't heard any of their studio stuff, but I went to a Rumblestrips gig about a year back. Awesome live act, shame the drinks cost their weight in gold though

I've probably dismissed them before even hearing anything of full length, but I don't know. Just not my taste

RBF isn't really bad, they're just not really ska (and yeah, the newest album does just blow).

I guess the closest thing to a favorite ska band for me would have to be Mr. Bungle, mostly their earlier days. They play many types of music, but ska was a more prominant one back then, but later they played alot of crazy stuff.

Streetlight Manifesto and Reel Big Fish are 2 other ska bands I occasionally listen to. But I like messed up music, so I'd go with Mr. Bungle any day . Although the other 2 bands are great bands, just not my type of ska I guess, although I love the way they push things a bit and add other genres into the mix, especially Streetlight Manifesto.

Sublime is great. I would consider them ska among many other things as well though.

But just because a band has horns or dosnt dosnt mean they play ska or not. Nothing more than a guitar is really needed to play ska as illustrated by Chris Murray who I cant get enough of. MOst bands are just rock or punk with horns, not ska at all. I saw this terrible band the other day called urizen. There lead singer was like 200 lbs over weight and all of there songs were about chicks. They baisically played metal with a 4 piece horn section. the whole thing was a terrible crappy gimic. Then when it was all done I got to listen to everyone talk about how "ska" they were. it depressed me. The when a good band played (Umbrella Bed from MN) they left. Whatever...
They are still ska, just a different form of it. I believe people call it "skacore" or something, but I never try to get really into sub-genres, kind of hard to explain, I just don't try to come up with a concrete definition because there really isn't a concrete definition of any type of music. For example, some might call a certain ska band is "skacore," another will say are "punk ska" and another will say they are "third wave ska." Sure, genres might help one find the music they like and keep things a bit organized, but I always have an open attitude.
