How do you feel about brass instruments?

Angry man with full beard shouting at camera

You literally hate ska

Why did you take this quiz, you ska hater? Either the horn section ain't your thing or you only listen to the real punk rock. This genre of music is just not for you. It could be that you find the reggae sounds appropriative or that you never liked them in the first place. Either way, we won't see you at the next Less Than Jake tour, huh?

You have no idea what ska is

We firmly believe you don't *hate* ska, per se—you just don't know what the heck it is. That's totally chill. If you google "skanking" we think you'll think you're better off without. (It's a really weird dance, like a friendly mosh pit move and you never hit anyone.) Anyway, we'd say try out some Reel Big Fish, but if they haven't caught you yet, we're not sure they ever will.

You like ska but you don't live the lifestyle

You've gotten down to a Streetlight Manifesto song or two in your day. You might've even tried your hand at skanking (we won't tell), and you own more than one Less Then Jake album. It's all good! Loving a genre doesn't meaning living it, and you're not overdoing the checkerboard clothing. Good for you!
