  12. No one ever seems to mention Steel Pulse. They blew up in the late 70's, put out some great music through the 80's and 90's... and are still selling out venues all over the world. (small clubs... but still :smoke:) Worth a mention.

    Buju Banton- Mr. Mention
  16. Also... though Bad Brains was really a Hard Core Punk-Ska band... they laid down a few sick reggae tracks.

    [ame=""]YouTube - Bad Brains - I & I rasta[/ame]

    Human Rights (H.R. of Bad Brains) went on to make some great reggae music as a solo act. I'm not so fond of his most recent work... but some of his older stuff (in my opinion) is really good.
  17. Wait.. one more. Thievery Corporation is probably known best for it's electronic, trip-hop, world-beat sound but they also have some great tracks you could lump into the reggae & dub genres. They put out original music as well as remixes with the likes of Blak Uhuru, Sister Nancy, Sleepy Wonder and more.
