A good genre of music that has been completly raped by coperate america. Coming from Jamacia in the 50s, it led to genres like reggae and funk. Some 80's punk bands incorperated it into their music with some success. Over time, as true punk died out, really crappy bands began to put horns and crappy chords into their music, making something that sounds nothing like true ska. The music industry picked up on this, and now labels all new pop rock crap that has any kind of brass instrument in it ska, and thus we are stuck with shitty bands like less than jake and sublime which are an embarresment to true ska and just plain suck.
