Streetlight Manifesto has a couple of good songs and that's really it, or that's just my opinion, but I don't think that they are epic or anything.

Is John Brown's Body ska or reggae? Love ska, but mainly the kind that has the 1st wave feel to it regardless of what later waves it is. (i.e. Slackers, Hepcat, etc)

Only ska punk/ska core bands I like are... Streetlight, and all the Choking Victim breakoffs.

more on the ska-core section
Sekta-Core most of their songs

on the 2nd wave:
Panteon Rococo
La Tremenda Corte

they're mexican all of them. Mexican ska has the difference that it treats social, and political themes to the songs, idk if there are english or american bands that do that

The songs I checked out were definately reggae. I only bothered to listen to a couple though.

They have some ska influence but they're more on the reggae/rocksteady side of things.

Sargasm, how about The Cat Empire? They're very eclectic (jazz, latin, funk, rock) but there is a definite ska influence. I mean I could always discuss them in Alternative but yeah, what do you reckon to them in here?

Lol yeah I was a little annoyed at myself 'cause I kinda linked you to their MySpace without listening to which tracks they had up there. Regardless of genre, they're decent =)

This isn't a comprehensive list. There are thousands of bands that aren't on there.

I have deemed Streetlight Manifesto the only good ska band ever.




This does not include ska-punk/ska-core/etc.
