There are several things that most people associate with music bloggers; either we’re super arrogant about our tastes, or just have loads of free time and connections. For the most part, I think people tend to put me in the first category, considering I have a full-time job that isn’t this web site, but I feel like I always have to justify myself, proving I’m not a snob. I’m pretty sure my love for this genre establishes my inability to escape mockery in all instances. It’s true, I love ska/ska-punk, whatever you call it. I spent loads of weekends as a teen dancing at Liberty Lunch or Voodoo Lounge. I figured in admitting my lack of cool, I’d also admit my favorites.
I’ve always been impressed by musical groups who encompass only three artists and continue to rock as hard as the next. It blows me away that a three-piece can create such a forceful sound that some bands can’t find within five or six members. I know this list doesn’t do justice recognizing some of the greatest trios of all time; however, these are five of my favorite.
