I see there's a lot of reggae fans around. That's to be expected. It's great for being stoned, there's no doubt. But what about ska?

All ska is good to me, but I like third wave. I like to just chill by this pond with my IPOD when im high and just listen to Planet smashers or Catch 22. Mad Caddies, The Specials. I like a lot of really popular ska bands.

Anyone else like ska? What are your favorite ska bands?

Pretty sure Slightly Stoopid is reggae not ska...

IMO ska is pretty bad... that's just me though

Ska is definately an acquired taste. I've been listening to it for six years. What i've found is that it has its off days. That's why I only like listening to it at the beach / longboarding barefoot / sunny days. It's just that kind of music. Cloudy days (like today) are just bad times for ska. And yes, streetlight manifesto is pretty crazy, except a little dark.

I'd reccomend for the reggae fans, listen to "cool your jets" by Planet smashers. It's a first wave ska-esque song, which is the style that became popular before reggae. Go give it a listen.

Streetlight Manifesto is probably my favorite band of all time. One may label them as ska but they are just so much more than that. As cheesy as it sounds, they've transcended ska into a genre of their own. They have a wide range of influences, everything from reggae to jazz to a little bit of polka to eastern European to much much more. Just sit down and listen to Everything Goes Numb, it's truly an epic masterpiece. Ok, I'm done now. :hello:

Your funky not a junkie but you know where to get it?

Also, I agree on streetlight. They are to ska what dragonforce is to power metal. Completely over the top. The guitar playing is so insane, as are the brass arrangements. And the lyrics are amazing. I don't know about you though, I only really liked Everything went numb and the Keasby Remix. I havent actually listened to the whole new CD (too much of the same)

Catch 22's Keasbey Nights is far superior to Streetlight's imo. But after Somewhere In The Between came out I was kinda skeptical, but it deffinitely grew on me. Phenomenal record, but Everything Goes numb still tops it. But are ya excited about the new B.O.T.A.R records coming out? I have been waiting like 5 years for 99 Songs Of A Revolution to come out!!:D

Sublime is highly influenced by ska, and has some ska songs. off the top of my head, wrong way. But as for their mostly underground stuff, there's a lot of ska, even some punk

I looove me some ska. You should check out Assorted Jelly Beans. Funny band name, I know, but their stuff's awesome & original. You can easily imagine them playing in a garage or a really bumpin' party.

I love love love ska, but it obviously can't be the only thing you listen to.

Seeing Streetlight Manifesto open for Reel Big Fish Jan. 2! Awesome. Saw Streetlight before, they're just amazing.

My friend's ska band just got onto iTunes, they played their last show in my garage:

Ska gets old really fast. There's only a handful of bands that can pull it off IMO.
