I've only heard two Less Than Jake songs, and they both sounded like punk rather than ska.

I don't really have a favourite band. I judge each song as I hear it. At the moment, I like the Splitters (a UK band), and I'm getting into the Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

The bands you mentioned are not the originals. The originals were Jamaican artists from the 1960s such as Prince Buster, Laurel Aitken, the Skatalites, Don Drummond and so on.
