    well the other guy covered reggae. so ill give you some ska. ska is a mixture of punk and reggae. well thats the only way to describe it to people who dont know the roots of ska. ska started in Jamaica in the 50's as Jamaica's answer to american rock n roll. in the mid 80's people started adding horns and other ska elements into punk music thus creating 3rd wave ska.

    Currently, my favourite track is "Pink Turns To Blue" by way of Husker Du. They're, umm... hardcore punk grew to become in the direction of extra melody and extra emotion-headquartered lyrics... almost one of the most previous so-known as "option rock" bands. Date: 1984
