Top 10 Third Wave Ska Bands of All Time; Sublime Tribute Badfish Show at Revolution

Do you long for the golden age of pop-punk-with-horns otherwise known as the 1990s? Of course you do! Everybody loves the '90s!

Can you think of a better way to express your deepest nostalgia for the blowjob-laden Clinton Era than by celebrating one of the decade's biggest reggae-rockers, Sublime? You'll have an opportunity to do just that next Wednesday at Revolution's "Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime."

Sublime didn't exist in a vacuum, however. Oh, no. Alongside No Doubt, the trio were crossover alums from a West Coast-originated, nationally-brewing "Third Wave" of ska that dared to pair pop-punk with Island music's spunky kid brother.

Check the jump for complete details on "Badfish" and County Grind's Top 10 third wave ska bands of all time.
