Hello pitmonkeys, I need halp.

So I've gotta do a presentation on reggae music tomorrow in music and I was wondering what are some harder songs that I could pass off as reggae? Like Reggae with rock/metal influences (or vice-versa). I was thinking of doing Skindred but it's probably too much of a deviation from reggae. Also can anyone recommend some softer Skindred songs?

You did note the use of the word "softer" right?

Nobody kicks ass, but I don't think it's fit for what TS wants.

I'd use Cause Ah Riot.

Just fully read OP.

"I was thinking of doing Skindred but it's probably too much of a deviation from reggae. "

Can't you just use some actual reggae instead of trying to pass non-reggae off as reggae?

-100000 that is complete rubbish, if no-one had had ideas to mix genres and try new things we would be way back in the past still listening to classical.

We need people to take genres and expand them just too see if it works or doesn't.

I suppose you could make the argument that ska is a rock influenced reggae (or vice versa).


To me, their pretty much the same thing. I mean i'm no expert but in my opinion the technical aspects are all the same, the only difference being that reggae seems to imply the traditional, Bob Marley kind of thing while "ska" bands tend to blend it with another style like punk.

I think you missed the point of his post. He wasn't saying that people shouldn't mix genres, he was just stating a preference for pure reggae over 'hardcore' reggae. I, for one, agree with him. You got a bit ahead of yourself with that rant my friend.
