Bob Marley - Jammin' / Is This Love / No Woman No Cry
Jimmy Cliff - Wonderful World Beautiful People
The Clash - Revolution Rock

That's a good start.

I would like to hear some bad reggae, because at this point I'm not sure any exists.

But yeah. Like everyone said, Bob Marley, Sublime, and Peter Tosh should get you off. If you want to get really into reggae, check out bands like Midnite, Steel Pulse, Mighty Diamond, and Pepper.

Congrats on getting into it though, it's my favorite genre.

Bob Marley of course. There is a lot of stuff that not a lot of people know about that is just as good as his stuff he's most known for.

The Skatallites
Peter Tosh (Bob Marley's guitarist and also an awesome solo career. He did a cool reggae cover of Johnny B' Goode.)
Inner Circle (Most noted for the theme to Cops, but other songs are good).

Though not reggae per se, The Clash had quite a few reggae influenced songs that are quite good.

Yea, Sublime is a great band. You have an Underoath icon, so I think your opinion doesn't matter.

The Skatallites are first wave ska. They had a huge impact on reggae but they are not reggae.

Edit: Also Toots and the Maytals are more Two Tone then anything.

To add on to my previous post, Lee Perry, don't know how I forgot him. And I'd like to emphasize Midnite, they're my favorite reggae group and more people should check them out.
#26
The Easy Star All-Stars did an entire Reggae/Dub version of Dark Side of the Moon.

And a Radiohead album.

Everbody should check that shit out.

Since when does Sublime count as reggae?

Yeah, Damien Marley's really good. They even play a few of his songs on the local rock station.



why wouldnt sublime be reggae? they sort of mix in some modern stuff and a little hip hop on some songs but theres definately a reggae vibe. and the upbeats are stressed.

If I'm not mistaken, first wave ska was around before reggae was even a genre of music.
