Ska, throughout its life time has gone through many developments. Starting with bands like “Toots and the maytals” and “the Skatelites”, ska has had a history very closely tied with reggae. During the mid 90’s, ska reached its all time high in popularity, and in that same time frame, was forced underground by the growing popularity of rap. It has been preserved through a few bands that still exist. Bands such as: “Reel big fish”, “The Aquabats!”, and “Less than Jake” have kept the small fan base interested for all these years. The ska genre has evolved into forms of punk, but I want to keep this topic more on the side of ska’s true roots.
I just want to see if there are people that still like it, and perhaps introduce the genre to people have never heard it before.
Please share names of your favorite bands and songs that still remain within the forgotten genre!
