Stick to the original ska from the mid to late 60's. That is the best. Modern day ska is a pop version of reggae and should be avoided at all costs. Want good ska try Desmond Dekker. He did "The Israelites" which was the first reggae that most Americans heard. His other stuff is amazing as well. Others include Millie Small, The Skalatians, Prince Buster, and the real early Bob Marley recordings.

Some good ska from the 90's and modern day would be rx bandits or some older Less Than Jake releases. That is more the punk ska mix right there. Like someone said above The Mighty Mighty Bosstones are a good example that alot of people have heard of.

Reggae typeish.. more instruments involved than just punk, but more upbeat than just reggae.

Try: Streetlight Manifesto - Everything Went Numb
[Streetlight Manifesto is the band. ]
