the answer is no. nobody listens to ska anymore


all the fans became hipsters or some shit like that




the only active ska band around here. they do a decent draw of drawing like, a hundred people to shows just for them

Everyone who jumped on the ska bandwagon jumped off,
And are now into dubstep.

isn't dubstep really repetitive and gay sounding, or am i still thinking about ska?

the ska bandwagon was literally 11 years ago


they had to go somewhere during that middle period.

I still listen to Ska, not as much as i would like.
My[___] is still a good place to go for new music, as is www.PureVolume.com

Ska will never die.

Khum khum..

The Slackers and TSPO are as close to musical gods for me as possible.

Here's a local band... well two.
http://www.myspace.com/wetsock
http://www.myspace.com/manitobalights

Both of these bands put on great live shows, and sound way better than they do in their recorded versions. (in fact the recording's pretty shitty for both)

i see it returning as the bitch of rap. i could imagine rappers use ska beats or incorporating chucking or something like that.

I still listen to a fair amount of ska, but I do see what you mean about nothing really of any importance coming from it in the past six or seven years.

well yeah i liked cv in 7th grade when i first discovered ska-punk, now im just sick of them and i think their whole anarchist squatter bullshit is overdone and boring and i can't take their views seriously when they have songs called "fuck america" and everything about "crack rock steady" is stupid


^^basically me ranting about how hardcore i thought they were four years ago and now im almost grown up and realize how moronic everything cv/indk/no cash/public serpents/loc was about
