Ska (/ s k ɑː /; Jamaican: ) is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the late 1950s and was the precursor to rocksteady and reggae. It combined elements of Caribbean mento and calypso with American jazz and rhythm and blues.
Post-punk (originally called new musick) is a broad genre of rock music that emerged in the late 1970s as musicians departed from the raw simplicity and traditionalism of punk rock, instead adopting a variety of avant-garde sensibilities and non-rock influences.
And punk got noticed in the world (USA isnt the entire world!) only when Sex Pistols came up with 'Never mind the bollocks' and the smashing single 'God save the queen'. I dont have anything against american music, but we represent the rest of the world, and nearly all of the people that i know prefer british music. Its a fact.
