The point of this thread, or how it was pitched to me, was not to be a complete huge mighty list of just ska bands. It is a brief overview of what ska is, meant for someone new to ska.

If we started making this an almighty ska bands list, then the almighty punk/ska list is pretty much ruined. And that was a ton of work on a lot of previous mods parts. I'm not taking that away from them.

You're right. We just wanted it to be a overview of the genre and a starting point for people who don't really know were to start. It's pretty much a thread to stop all the "just getting into ska" threads.

Yeah but if there are a couple bands that NEED to be added, I'm fine with that. I don't want this thread to be a list though.

^Suggest some and we'll add it. Ska punk/punk-core is the weakest section

Oh I thought you meant to add more to the ska core section.

I don't listen to much. The Suicide Machines are pretty good

I've seen some old 1st wave ska videos on youtube before and they were "Skanking" I guess. It was like a real, slowed down version of what skanking is seen as today.

This would've made finding Ska bands about a thousands times easier when I started getting into it. Thanks a lot.

Maybe we should do one for punk as well, because it's still quite hard to pick stuff out from the punk/ska list

The Clash were not a ska band. They were a punk band, but they played ska, dub, and reggea songs. They only experimented with these genre's.

that means nothing, they were still very important to ska as a genre, they brought it forth to alot of bands that otherwise would have never heard of it, THE SPECIALS for instance, their biggest influence was the clash, now are u gonna tell me the specials werent a ska band??, I asked if they were important to ska

You did to say they were a ska band

They were probably even more influencial to ska punk than they were to two tone/2nd wave.
