Less Than Jake is another great ska band that has become more popular recently.. unfortunately their newer stuff isn't really ska so much.. so here's a great song off one of their best albums to show off what they can really do.

Track 1 from Firme

Year: 1995
Track Description:
On a bit of the heavier side of ska here, more punk influenced is the Voodoo Glow Skulls. This song is fast and its a little harder to pick up on the ska rythm in the guitars, but its there, and its got the all-important horns as well.

Track 1 from Supertones Strike Back
Length: 00:02:41
Year: 1997
Track Description:
Normally I don't really condone listening to heavily Jesus bands, but I have to make an exception for the Supertones because they are just so darn RAD! This song has an epic sort of intro before it hits the telltale ska beat, and even though its all about God and Jesus, you can't help but get up and dance to this one.

Recently I have realized that a HUGE portion of the music I love today can be traced back to several snowboarding/skateboarding videos and video games.. this is one of the songs that started it all.. straight off the Tony Hawk 1 soundtrack.. 7 years later I still know every word!

Track Description:
Cousin Oliver is a fantastic, little-known ska/punk band with only one album.. but it is one great album indeed. The songs are catchy and generally pretty funny. This Gem, titled "Chuck" is about a boy we all know quite well.. his name is Charlie Brown.

Year: 1996
Track Description:
The first time I saw RBF in concert they played this song twice in a row and then once more in the encore.. because it kicks that much ass. A fantastic song by a fantastic band.. this song is about problems with a girl and drinking beer.. and don't we all know too much about both of those..

Year: 2000
Track Description:
"Cuttin' it short on top/I want that for me/You're growin' it long in the back/So savage and so free" I know mullets are trendy, but I liked them way before that, and obviously so did Five Iron Frenzy. This song is so awesome, and fun.

Track 7 from Energy
Length: 00:02:15
Year: 1991
Track Description:
No horns in this one, I could have used Reel Big Fish's cover if I wanted the horns, but its still got that ska rythm, and you have to give major cred to Op Ivy because they are such an amazing and influential band.. I couldn't NOT put Op Ivy on here, especially since they are another one of those bands that I have to credit with getting me into so much good music.

I think many, many people today would be wise to listen to this song..

Year: 0000
Track Description:
Like most of the other bands on this CD, a ska compilation just wouldn't be complete without these guys. Though the lyrics in this song are basically the same thing repeated over with little variation, its still a great song.. about why you shouldn't get married for comfort..

Track 1 from Specials

Year: 1979
Track Description:
This is a great song to end a fantastic ska mix on. With this song we go back to the old-school.. while everything on this CD so far has been third-wave ska, this song takes us back to second-wave..

Its bands like The Specials that influenced, without a doubt, every single other band on this CD, as well as so many other great non-ska bands such as The Police, The Clash and even Elvis Costello.
