|Reel Big Fish - I am not a huge ska fun, but these guys are one of the few I like and they are fun.|
|Try A Billion Ernies. They may surprise you. |
Also try The Toasters and possibly The W's. The W's are more swing but they are amazing.
|try 'mad caddies' and also check out 'sounds like chicken', you can find their stuff for free if you search here www.jamendo.com.|
lets be honest though, ska's dead and theres a good reason for that.
|Streetlight Manifesto is good.|
|I second the W's, there good fun|
|Dude! Much respect for naming A Billion Ernies, clumsy. Those guys are absolutley ridiculous, in a cool way.|
|Ska sucks. 2 is win, though. 3 is much better as a prog rock band.|
|As a totally different band, you might try The Ernies. Their first album (self-titled) is ska; rest sort of deviate, but it's all good.|
Otherwise, I'd recommend some old Goldfinger.
|Try 'Madness' and 'The Specials'|
|the original KEASBEY NIGHTS!|
|bandits of the acoustic revolution, catch 22|
|anything with kalnoky|
|whoa weres the reel big fish and save ferris both very good ska bands|
|Thanks for the recommendations, guys. |
As for the Reel Big Fish, they are actually supposed to be on here. I've only got their greatest hits album, good stuff.
@clumsydonkey, I've given The W's a listen before and really couldn't get into them. Might have been the explicitly christian lyrics.
@Goodapollo, Save ferris IS on there.
Also, any of you guys checked out the band Folly?
|any band tomas kalnoky is/was in|
|Definitely need to check out The Specials, The Flatliners (their first album, "Destroy To Create"... second album's decent but not really ska/punk), One Cool Guy (another one of the bands Streetlight Manifesto formed out of the ashes of), The Toasters, MU330, Mustard Plug, and Suburban Legends.|
...Went through a big ska phase haha.
|I second (or third) The Specials and Madness.|
Link 80 (more like ska/punk I guess)
|wait for kris to get here butttttttt|
Arrogant Sons of Bitches
Bomb the Music Industry!
Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution
