    @Nick322 Reggae rock & ska was pretty popular in the 70s & 80s. Check out [artist]Men at Work[/artist] they have a similar sound but a bit more popish. Speaking of ska, it was also popular in the 60s among the Mods, most notable Mod band [artist]The Kinks[/artist] had a few ska songs. ----> Great song by The Police ... I still love it! <3
