Fuck Sublime, and pretty much all of the third wave of Ska blasphemy. I know folks who think Ska started in So-Cal, bummer. Ska is from Jamaica and it is the roots of Rocksteady, Dub, Reggae, and all that other stuff. It started when kids down in Jamaica were getting radio transmissions of Soul, and R&B from New Orleans, and combined it with the traditional Mento beat. I had to get that off my chest, when people dis Ska it almost makes me as mad as when people say Hip-Hop and Rap are two different things. Anyhow, here's a cool little video montage of old footage from Jamaica that I found, pretty sweet.
