ska
newer ska is known mainly as a mix of punk, reggae, and ussually features horns such as trumpets and trombones.

there is supposedly a ska "style" but it is hard to pinpoint and consists mainly of a lot of punk with some vintage clothing mixed in.
You can hear the three components of ska in Less Than Jake.

ska
A "fun" genre of music. Examples include Reel Big Fish, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Catch 22 (although they are more of a swing dance style). And Ska without horns? What a horrible definition.
I love skankin'

ska
Commenly known as a style of music but can also be a way of life (just like emo or metal can be). Skas live thier life from the lyrics of their favorite Ska band (Less Than Jake, Catch 22) and often make up their own sayings or life rules, showing adaptation similiar to the music itself. Skas can look like what some would call preps, chatches, richies, or some times even borderline gangster. Their appearance is not limited to that although because of the flexiblity of the music/style. Skas are also known for their drinking ability and their general dislike of emos.

ska
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.
"Dude do you like ska music?"
"You dont even know what real ska is shut up"

ska
The worst genre of music ever made, mostly because Dylan likes it.
Because Dylan listens to ska, ska is retarded.
