    Default Best Ska Band?

    Who do you think is the best ska band out there? My personal favorite is Streetlight Manifesto. Amazing bassist and an awesome horn section, u just cant go wrong with them. Thoughts anyone?

    My new-found favorite ska band is Choking Victim, but I've always liked Goldfinger. Leftover Crack has some good tracks too, like Rock the 40 oz. (honestly, I just like the music, the lyrics are dumb)

    I love how Ska really took off on this forum!

    For me... probably Skaos

    ...or A Billion Ernies... Ska... But with Screamo vocals! Bloody cool.

    I prefer older ska bands like The Specials or Madness.

    As far as that sort of punk-ska fusion type music, leftover crack is easily my favortie, mediocre generica and fuck world trade are great albums

    im not sure, thats a hard question to pick a best. streetlight manifeso is very good, but operation ivy is classic. but if your going overal best, id probably just say the skatalites.
