I'm sure you have heard people make fun of ska punk in passing, but have you actually ever listened to it? Unless you're from my generation where all we listened to in our teens was pop punk, you probably haven't.
I'm here to tell you that the jokes surrounding ska are all based on the stereotypes and not actual truth. While the musicians do tend to have ridiculous hair and style of performance, the music itself is actually very compelling and stems from jazz! The rhythms and overall composition can be quite complex, so you should check out this underdog genre!
