Waiting to see which one emerges as the dominant term.

Srsly, is this the new ric-rolled or something?

If you want cute, grungy-looking but clean, this guy will work:

But they have many of the ska band elements: they’re English, use horns, have black and white members, and a self-consciously island/Reggae beat. The xylophones/vibraphones deal certainly made them more Air Supply-like (or Cheap Trick).

They are to ska as Air Supply is to heavy metal.

(They actually do still tour, or make appearances as nostalgia-fests anyway.)

That link for fratguy is further proof of musical Devo-lution. (sorry I couldn’t resist referencing the pride of Akron)
