ska is a brand of music that can be summed up by the one band in the genre that is any good: The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones.anything else considered "Ska" is basically just trying to sound like that one band. go get some Bosstones because its good but anything else is darn.
just because the Bosstones are the only ska band that broke big that you like does NOT mean that it's the only ska band worth listening to.
most of what i listen to comes from bands like these: alice in chains, mad season, soundgarden, gnr, hendrix, temple of the dog, metallica, led zep, audioslave, black label society, rage against the machine, a perfect circle, mudvayne, social distortion, stone temple pilots.beyond that:i like afi, taking back sunday, and thursday for emo-ish *&^%, and jack johnson, dispatch, mason jennings, and john mayer(i HATE that wonderland song, but his any given thursday live cd is good stuff) for more mellow stuff. i dont listen to rap or hiphop, but ill listen to pretty much anything else.
the doors are overrated. jim morrison was full of himself. and full of *&^%, too. full of *&^% and himself, I guess you could say. in conclusion, he was very fat when he died. fat like late-era elvis fat.
