A Defense Of Ska

So those of us who were into ska in the early to mid 2000’s (I got into it in 1998 off of Bosstones Let’s Face It) have had to suffer through countless hipsters and supposed punks telling us we’re not cool. First off, who the fuck is cool in the underground scene? We’re all the weirdos, nerds and freaks to begin with, so spike your hair and check yourself. Next, fuck everyone one of those magazines. People who clearly can’t songwrite (why else are they music critics?) Have absolutely no business telling anyone what is or isn’t cool since they’re not creators. Ska is honestly the most interesting thing to happen to a guitar since Robert Johnson. Fuck old rock, that’s a bunch of white boys ripping off black artists. Ska started as the outlet for disparate people in Jamaica putting their on spin of mixing American R&B with Mento. In the UK it was the ultimate for black and white working class to come together. In America it’s an outlet for weird kids of all orientations to come together and have fun while thinking about more. Ska is the revolution we can dance to! And if you think ska is a goofy joke, you’re fuckin wrong. So pick up your head out of your ass and get over yourself. None of us are cool kids, or we wouldn’t be living those underground life.
