I love Ska-Punk!
And it’s a good time to revisit some old ska-punk, because the genre is coming back in a big way. The Interrupters started making it popular again with their hit (yes, hit) “She’s Kerosene” in 2018, and they haven’t slowed down since. This summer, they’ll open that gigantic Green Day/Weezer/Fall Out Boy tour, bringing ska-punk to a stadium near you. The critical acclaim for Jeff Rosenstock’s solo material has shined a brighter light on his old ska-punk bands Arrogant Sons of Bitches and Bomb the Music Industry, and Jeff even snuck a little ska-punk into his much-loved album WORRY. on the song “Rainbow.” When we once asked Jeff in an interview why he thinks ska gets such a bad rep, he said point blank: “I’ve answered this question in every interview I’ve done, so if you’re reading this, HEY IT’S OK TO LIKE SKA.”
