Best ska band ever, go!

Asking for a friend. I contributed Streetlight Manifesto, but I'm not well-versed enough in ska bands to have a very authoritative opinion on the matter. Help, please?

I've listened to a lot of "true ska" as well as "classic ska", but there is no doubt in my mind that The Forces Of Evil are the most *fun* band to listen to

The English Beat. great band but it straddles a white-boy ska infused with countless popular uk influences, so it comes off as a sophisticated pop group.

Random Hand are another fantastic band from the UK, highly recommend them. Think everybody has mentioned the majority of the big names.

FIVE IRON FRENZY FTW. Forgot about those guys! Great stuff.

oh, and does Sublime count as ska?

There is something about Streetlight Manifesto that I cannot get into. My votes are for The Specials, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and The Suicide Machines.
