    suicide machines
    catch 22
    The taj motel trio
    choking victim

    rub out your eyes, this ship is sinking
  • the single album SLAPSTICK is one of the best ever, I didn't see it in your list!

  • yeah that is pretty much the definition of skapunk....i have that cd and yes its really good...whats your favorite song on there?

  • Some good UK ones
    Duff Muffin
    Catch-It Kebabs
    Blame It On Edd
    Shootin Goon
    Sonic Boom Six

    Outside of the UK

    Ska-p are worth checking out as are Streetlight Manifesto

    Also while they are not really ska-punk NoComply, Adequate Seven and Howards Alias are very good.

    Hello Fellow Punk & Ska Fans..... !!


  • yup what other people said with streetlight manifesto empasized once again!

  • ive noticed most peoples lists are missing:

    Johnny Socko
    Less Than Jake
    Bruce Lee Band
    Catch 22

    i need to check out ska-p cos they look good!

    'Unless you could see inside my head, you couldn't possibly understand'
  • :O really! well that isn't good enough, yes less than jake, catch 22 and specials, ska-p are quite cool (Y)

  • i looked at this and realized i myself hadnt put anything down so heres my favorites:
    suicide machines
    catch 22

    check out Asian Man Records if you havent already because that label is pretty much all ska and or punk bands. guarantee youll come away liking one of the bands. that is if you havent already discovered the label.

  • I agree with the goodness of Asian man. Thats where i descovered the wonder that is Johnny Socko. Try out their compulation albums 'mailorder is fun' and'mailorder is still fun' from amazon. Just make sure you dont go on cos i made that mistake and it was a gay porn site!

    'Unless you could see inside my head, you couldn't possibly understand'
  • hahahaha thats hilarious

  • You don't have The Aquabats! on your list
    Their cd The Fury...of The Aquabats! is one of the best ska-pop-punk-newwave cds ever
