The Ska/2Tone/Rude Boy/Ska-Punk/Dancehall/Reggae Thread


Recommended Posts

Any fans about??

The Specials, Reel Big Fish, The Beat, The Slackers, Operations Ivy, Buju Banton, Less Than Jake, No Doubt, Madness, Bad Manners, Shaggy, Dance Hall Crashers, and so on.

I'm a huge fan (though the homophobia generally associated with Dancehall music I try to ignore!) of all these genres - proper feel-good summertime party music.

Anyone else love it? ^_^

Less than Jake and No Doubt I can stand. I remember going on a choir trip to Seattle and the whole fucking time we were in the car they played this really really horrible ( mind you guys I don't mind reggae rap) but it was three days of the worst you have ever heard.I'll have to look up who the artist was.

I'm not a big fan of ska punk, I much prefer the older 2 tone stuff like the Specials and the Beat.

Sublime were a good band though. Definately a "summer" band.

The King Blues are an amazing band. You might call them ska punk I guess? I don't know.

Reel Big Fish, The Specials and Operation Ivy are my favorites :)

The position being taken is not to be mistaken

For attempted education or righteous accusation

Only a description just an observation of the pitiful

Condition of our degeneration

Walls made of opinions thru which we speak and never listen

Ceiling made of pride vicious and self satisfied

Door thats made of rage hard and slowly aged

Always closing tighter with every war that's waged

Room without a window cant see out...

Floor is made of lives wed gladly end to stay inside

Corners made of borders, borders made of law and order

Painted with the words of politicians and religion

Plastered with the wreckage of our cultural division

Room without a window cant see out.

Operation Ivy- Room Without a Window
