Default So I am getting into Ska. Opinions on my choices?

I have been getting into Ska lately and really like it. I have been listening to some mainstream stuff right now but anyways. What are your opinions on my choice?

The Toasters
Slow Gherkin
The Pietasters
Mad Caddies
Reel Big Fish
Mustard Plug

Please leave me some bands. I really like this genre. And if you are asking why Sublime isn't up there it is because I don't know a single person who doesn't like Sublime . Thanks guys I am new to this forum so check my profile out. Stop and send a request.

Reel Big Fish? Do you mean powder puff American bands with trumpets?

Listen to Prince Buster. That's ska.

Here's a list of first generation musicians (late Sixties to early Seventies) who were among the earliest ska artists:

The Wailers (early Bob Marley)
Prince Buster
Desmond Dekker
Don Drummond
The Ethiopians
Harry Johnson
Millie Small
The Maytals
Laurel Aitken
The Melodians
The Skatalites
The Heptones
Dave & Ansel Collins
The Upsetters
Johnny Nash
Winston Williams
Justin Hinds and the Dominoes
There are two types of music: the first type is the blues and the second type is all the other stuff.
