ska, a fast upbeat music, the polar opposite of emo, fast dub reggae guitar strokes, quick drums, rockin bassline, and biting horn thrown in, all started by a man by the name of laurel aitken. Three different kinds of ska exist. Traditional, two tone, and third wave. Traditional is the stuff that came out of jamaica as dance music. Two tone was named that for the unity of races in ska bands, such as the specials. Third wave is what the genre has developed today. It is harder than traditional or two tone, known for being associated with punk.
Ingredients of ska-
1 part fast lyrics, drums, guitar, and bass
1 part horn that'll blow ur highschool band away
1 part not sucky
all part badass

The greatest style of music, especially when combined with punk to form badass bands like Operation Ivy and Big D and the Kid's Table. If you don't listen to ska, chances are you have a small penis.
You can thank Jamaica for ska (and fat blunts.)

A style of early Jamaican music combining elements of mento (a form of calypso) with American jazz and R&B. A precursor of rock steady and reggae.
There are actually three waves of ska. The original Jamaican form developed in the late 1950's and early 60's, a revival in England in the late 70's/early 80's, and a second, mainly American, revival in the mid to late 90's.
The Skatalites are the oldest ska band still playing music today.

'Third Wave' ska is the most common these days, a combination of upbeat music with meaningful lyrics.
The general message (when it's not about something random like showers or pigeons) seems to be life has its downsides but we can still feel good about it.

A form of music blending everything good about upbeat music, though some slower tunes can be catagorised as ska
