    Yah, there are some good ska bands out there, I like Less Than Jake, but then im not much in to ska anymore. It seems to me that ska came from reggae so you might check out good ol' bob marley.

    Yah Matt from op ivy rules, he does some good stuff in rancid too. I also like the voodoo glow skulls, but none of thier bass lines jump into memory so i doubt they are anything special.

    Check out the Aquabats. Captian Hampton and the Midget Pirates of the Caribean has a kick ass line.
