first of all, you can all just suck on a big one if you have a problem with this. This is so great. I don't like rock music and don't care for Nirvana of course, but this is such a great cover that it forces me to appreciate how great the songwriting of Curtis Kobain was.




if you don't like it, just eat a big one right now. I don't have time for your mess. That's an amazing cover. F you.

I actually like this. The song actually translates well into reggae. Even the lyrics remind me of reggae lyrics.

"I'm so happy 'cause today
I found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, that's okay
'Cause so are you
Broke our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday
For all I care
And I'm not scared
Light my candles in a daze
'Cause I've found God"


edit: referring to the fist post, Lithium.

actually, if you wanna get technical, the Lithium cover is really ska. The others are reggae.

I tricked TheMeeper, "Mr. Ska is Just Some Weird Thing That Got Popular For 5 Minutes In 1997" into liking a ska song.

I win.

ska has been around as early as the early 60's, some might say even the late 50's.

Ummm, I don't recall ever saying that. I know ska has been around since the 60s, and I don't even consider those goofy 90s bands like No Doubt or Mighty Mighty Bosstones to be ska. Ska-revival maybe, but it's an insult to bands like The Skatellites to call those nineties bozos "ska".

I was just assuming you'd be one of those guys who thinks that, because you're usually too cool for school. No Doubt are a bunch of bozos. I'd punch Gwen Stefani in the back of the face if I got the chance. 48 year-old cunt singing about being a "Holler Back Girl".....fuck her. I will defend The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, though. No, they aren't ska either, but they are actually good and I still enjoy them. A thing to understand also--like any other kind of music, there are different styles and subgenres in ska. The Skatalites are ska at it's root. That's the textbook definition, but there are variations also, like the 2-tone style with The Specials, or the more traditional contemporary style of The Slackers, Hepcat........The Toasters are what they call 'third wave' but third wave is not as much a style as it is an era.......you wouldn't call The Slackers third wave, or Hepcat, even though that's the era they came out of.

There's just a lot more to it than "No Doubt bad, Skatalites good". If you're interested enough to listen to more than the polar opposites and form your opinion based on that, there's room for different kinds of ska. But yes, No Doubt is absolute garbage, and a whole shit load of the come and go 'ska' bands from that period. Don't write off all ska from the 90's, or 80's, though.

you're late for football practice, tho

I actually hate people who tell me they "really like ska", when basically they mean they have a few Bosstones albums and saw Reel Big Fish long ago. That isn't "really liking ska", IMO.

I also hate when people tell me they love reggae, but the only album they know is Bob Marley's "Legend".

I saw an Onion headline awhile back that said "The Ghost of Bob Marley Rises to Free Fraternity Brothers From the Bonds of Oppression". I found that funny.

That's exactly why I steered clear of Bob Marley for a long time after I became interested in ska, and then reggae. My first exposure to ska was through the whole 1997 sell-out thing. I found it appealed to me. Then I started looking deeper and found the good stuff, and that led me to reggae, rocksteady, dub, even dancehall....the whole Jamaican schmeer. I educated myself on reggae with Toots and the Maytals, Lee Perry, The Upsetters, Joe Gibbs, Max Romeo, Harry J Allstars, The Hippy Boys, Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis, The Revolutionaries, Gregory Isaacs, John Holt, Rico Rodriguez, King Tubby.........then listened to some Bob Marley and The Wailers. The stuff everybody knows---from around Catch A Fire onwards. Now I can enjoy Bob Marley without feeling like a tourist.

This is what I believe.
