Question What bands have been influenced by reggae?

I have to work on a project for my music class and the group decided reggae to be our genre of discussion. I'm in charge of bringing to the table bands in other genres besides reggae that have been influenced by reggae. Any names come to mind? thanks guys!

lots of "ska" stuff. or close to ska or w/e

you know where i hear reggae riffs quite a lot? in some Rush stuff. something about Alex Lifeson's phrasing or w/e. i'm not saying the band was influenced by reggae, and i know nothing of them tbh...but i hear it in more then a few of their songs

prolly wouldn't be a good band to include in you paper, though

That's because they keep the punk and the reggae separate - just like it is written in the bible. You probably encountered their punk stuff.

I thought they were supposed to have blended reggae and punk and that's what made them unique.

Industrial group KMFDM did a reggae influenced album, might be worth mentioning for something different

you could talk about how reggae set the stage for dub (which is really just an extension of reggae), and, later, dubstep.

and while you're talking about dub, you could talk about how much it influenced fugazi and how they influenced pretty much every band people talk about on this board. off the top of my head, a big dub influence leaked into at the drive-in and the mars volta's music too, but that's maybe a bit more trivial.

Well Ska technically came first, but was slowed down due to being played in the Jamaican heat, so reggae was created.

Tons of influence all across the board. Can't believe no one has mentioned The Police yet though.

Cause it wasn't hot in Jamaica when ska first came around.

Well the music came about when Jamaican musicians tried to emulate R&B music from radio broadcasts of New Orleans, which was in turn slowed down. I'm sure the fact that it was hot and they smoked loads of ganja was a big part of it.
