Default Good Ska Punk bands?

Could someone please give me a list of some good Ska Punk bands. The only ones I know about would be Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish. But I would say that Les Than Jake is hardly ska because most there newer albums dont have any brass in it.

Operation Ivy is quite possibly the best ska/punk band ever and they have no horn section at all, and although I would hardly call either RBF or LTJ ska/punk, if you do like them I would definitely check out Voodoo Glow Skulls and of course the obvious Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

Wait I thought that ska-punk always had a horn section? So then what turn punk into ska-punk? And thanks for the bands.

Syncopated Reggae-esque guitars and drums, Fast walking 12 bar bass lines, and yes sometimes a horn section. It's really a hybrid genre, if its a genre at all. Maybe a better question would be what turns ska into ska-punk.

I am assuming you have heard of Sublime, If for some reason you have not their music is a must have in your collection, one of my alltime favorite bands
