An awesome feel good type of music that everyone loves. It makes you want to skank all over the place. It always reminds me of the first Tony Hawk Pro Skater game for N64.
"Police Truck" by the Dead Kennedys is a great ska song.

Bands like Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto, and Catch 22 are popular in the ska scene today.

A style of music revolving around horns, guitar, bass, drums, and a vocalist. Chordal structure is that of upbeats or power chords. Some ska bands have trumpets like Reel Big Fish, some have trombones and saxes, like Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and some have two trombones and a French horn, like Sold for Less. Skanking is the dancing done to such music, and is characterized by kicking those legs and punching the air and flailing.
Dude, I love to skank to that ska. I really dig that sound

kickass music comin ou tof the late 60's punky reggea party which begot Two-Tone which then turned into ska when some Rudeboy was like "... yo lets put some horns to that two tone beat." it is the best music in the world, combining the best traits of Reggae, Swing and Punk. the many different varieties of ska include Two-Tone (first-wave/ traditional) ska/punk, and 3rd wave. Ska has brought to light and coind such phrases as "hep, hep, hep" and "pick it up!" (these two phrases oftern adjoin one another in usage at ska shows.
so i was walkin down the street and i see these hepcats n' kittens all dressed up to jive and i says "where you goin?" and they says to me "hey, hey rudie, we're goin on down to the ska show." so we go and the joint is bustin out and all the Rudeboys and Rudegirls were like "hep, hep, hep, PICK IT UP!" And all the Rudeboys, hepcats n' kittens were skankin' to that two-tone beat. SKA IS NOT DEAD!!!

Ska is an amalgam of reggae, swing, and surf-rock influences. 3rc wave Ska has punk influences. A walking bass, offbeat chords, repetetive drumlines, and brass are the most obvious ska traits. Offbeat lyrics and interesting voices are also trademarks. Skankers also have an affinity for Canada.
Ska freakin rox!
Five Iron Frenzy and The Aquabats are good Ska bands.
Ska rocks my sox!

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.
