I'm sorry for making this thread, I'm sure it's been done many times, but what are some good ska bands like Streetlight Manifesto? I did read that "Official Ska Band List" thread but it didn't describe what the bands were like. I like Streetlight Manifesto and Less Than Jake, so what would be some good bands if I like those? Just tell me a band and some of their good songs. I heard and Operation Ivy song on a video on YouTube with a guy skanking. That was good, but I don't know the name. Please, no LTJ-bashing because I know they are not top-quality ska, but I really like them anyways.

get The Aquabats..... i like 98% of their songs. their one of those bands who sing about totally random and awesomely stupid things......go get "Pool Party" to start you off.


p.s. it will take some getting use to the awesomeness of the 'bats!!!
dont judge a guy by the guitar he plays, but how he plays it

Oh yeah, that song is already on my iPod. It really depends on the mood I'm in to listen to the Aquabats, though. Most of the time I will like them, but if I'm not in a really good mood, then "Pool Party" pisses me off.

REEL BIG FISH is the most awsome in my opinion and then if u wanna stray into the first wave ska get some prince buster then u get some of the specials and maybe a slight hint of mustard plug with a touch of the suburban legends and also

if u want some other good stuff get folly it is hardcore but their ska breakdowns are awsome

Please use the Search Button.
I have done this way too many times.

Hell, check the Streetlight Manifesto thread for suggestions.

Circle that A, motherfucker!
