If we're going with Sublime, then I can mention Badfish, right? ^_^
I really like Badfish, going to see 'em at the Brooklyn Bowl this friday.

But I can't stop dancing when I hear Zoot Suit Riot, it's contagious!

Everytime I hear Get Loose by The Salads, it makes me want to jump around

sublime is not ska, and are way to overrated for how bad they suck
listen to real ska like the planet smashers or the specials or mustard plug

I agree with House of Fun, in a positive way - Madness is one of the greatest British Second Wave Ska bands who did go Pop for a while, but mainly in a Ray Davies-Late 60's greatness tradition although they slipped quite a bit once Mike Barson left around the time of Keep Moving. They got back to Ska-influenced roots after a long while, and it's good...thankfully, hardly anyone remembers their failed 1987-8 80's Pop incarnation as The Madness.

As far as The Specials went, their first two albums are still very good in my book, and yes I'm guilty for liking More Specials (Side One, however, is still damn sharp to my ears), and the entire "Ghost Town" EP is solid. To me, the magic was lost with In The Studio With The Special AKA, although it did have one monster single in it with "Free Nelson Mandela." Sadly, their 1996 return was even more regrettable than "The Madness" (Today's Specials, the ill-fated "Update" with some good choices for covers, and then that slip of with quality of recording Neil Diamond's "A Little But Me, A Little Bit You" which really killed off the hope for a while).

I have been digging the Real Ska on the first few pages, by the way.

Anyone care for a mention of some solid 90's Ska like The Toasters?

I've always loved this 1967 original a lot more than the special's version! The bass is a bit blurry on youtube, but nevertheless, it should suffice.

My fave ska music is the 80s song Come On Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runner. Nice cool, jolly vibe!
