Saying as ska as Reel Big Fish is akin to saying as punk as Green Day.

A billion teenagers are now crushed upon realising that Green Day are not a punk band

I'd say they're more ska/pop-punk.

Also, while I like a lot of their music, I saw them at Warped Tour (kill me) and they did seem like total jerks. The music was fun, though.

I'd say they're more of an awful band, but they do fit into that awful and miscalculated paradigm of the modern 'ska band'.

they only veered away from Ska Punk in Anthem and In With The Out Crowd. All the other albums are basically ska punk/pop punk.
