    ska in its pure form is annoying

    but i like skapunk a lot if there's over 50& punk in it...
    (i count streetlight as skapunk...)



    if anyone's interested, theres a very good skapunk band from my region, totally unknown but incredible good, so i'll have to ad a bit around...

    // edit: damn -.- okay it was advertising i see why i cant post the link ^^ - LATER! MUAHAHAHAAA -.~"
    wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ;_;

    Ehhhhh, but those are quiiiiiite a few of their songs. Most of them, other than Santeria and What I Got and a few others. But they've got the ska guitar parts, and they've got horns on a few songs too... give Date Rape another listen, then try and say they aren't ska.

    But yeah, they are really laid back ska. And saying they're more like reggae... well, there really isn't thaaaaaat much difference. First-wave ska was akkshly what reggae came from, which many people don't actually know.

    Sublime never had a brass lineup, that was just stuff they added in. Have you ever heard Date Rape live? No horns.

    While a few of their songs have horns and ska riffs, if you compare the few to the hundreds that don't..they aren't really that ska.

    Eh. Reggae is technically an offshoot of ska, but... I don't feel like arguing over it.

    I'm seeing Mad Caddies with Pepper on March 2nd. It's gonna be pretty fucking insane.

    I haven't heard enough of it.

    But I do like I Voted For Kodos, RX Bandits, Streetlight Manifesto, Suicide Machines, and what I have heard of Hepcat and the Toasters. I feel like I am forgetting some...oh well...I'm not too big on it anyway.

    EDIT: I forgot Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

    If you like RX, you should listen to The Sound Of Animals Fighting.

    They are a progressive post-hardcore band. But Matt Embree does some vocals for them. He is amazing.

    Oh, also..fans of RX should look into "superband". It was an alias for the band that consisted of all members of Finch and RXB. They played covers of old songs. Including some Nirvana and The Police.

    I'm seeing them on the 28th April, together with some other bands on the Groezrock festival. Can't wait. =D

    It was a pretty fucking amazing show. Pot-fueled skanking is about the closest you can get to heaven.

    I might go to Warped Tour this year, there look to be some good bands there. Pepper I know, and I believe a few more skatastic bandies too.
