Psycho Mantis: Welcome to our third Top Ten! This one's different though, it's actually serious. When it comes to our favorite SKA songs ever, we dont screw around.
So, we made this so we can share with everyone out there the 10 best SKA songs(in our opinion) to ever grace the earth. If you dont have any one of these songs drop what you're doing, and get them AT ALL COSTS. I'm not kidding. It doesnt matter how many people you have to crush to get them, this is important. Race at 100 MPH to Tower Records, run red lights, strangle your neighbor with piano wire for their money. Whatever it takes.

Psycho Mantis: There you have it! Our favorite SKA songs ever!

The Vault of Insanity!!

First of all, I need to explain how we chose the songs we did. Five members of our band wrote out their Top Ten favorite songs ever (Psycho Mantis, Ska Lord, Goofus, Rick, and Ducky), from one to ten. The way it scores it like this:

1. song from each list = 10 points
2. = 9 points
3. = 8

Ect. ect.

Then we added up all the points and the songs with the most points made it on the list. So, that's what those numbers next to the song name mean. Ex. (7+3=10) means it got 7 points from someone else, and 3 from another, to get a total of ten. Ok, I hope that made sense.

Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick.
