Man oh man, do I love phrases that have double meanings! “To strike out on your own” mean either to leave everything behind and enter into the world, or it can mean to fail all by your self. I kinda like that, life always has more than one meaning, which is what makes it so great! Right? Well, I think I’m right at least. So hey, here’s a bunch of kick ass ska and ska/punk music for you! If you never heard of any of these bands before, you’re in for a treat! Also, if you know some of them, but not all, I’ll let know right now, they all measure up to each other. So sit back, relax and may your wins be more than your losses.
