    Operation Ivy

    Fuck, I love these guys. Haven't seen anything that good sense.

    Stand by your freinds, wrong or right
    Can't call that justice when its just a stupid excuse to fight
    Single out and attack the ones who got no defense
    You call that a new way of thinking i call it regression to ignorance
    Take warning
    Theres a new generation coming
    And we really gotta stand up to them
    Nobodys got a thing against you
    Unless youve got something to prove
    We dont need no set of standards,
    We dont need a new set of rules
    Heard all that shit before
    About stomping out any difference
    We say stand together!
    (not to fight just to exist)
    Take warning
    Intimidation coming
    And we really gotta say no to them
    Enough is enough is enough
    Why dont you just ease up
    I saw another beat down last nite take warning
    Who's the next to hit the ground tonite take warning

    "since", unless you meant something totally different, or are speaking with an accent.

    If you really are a "party robot" then I'd hate to see the nerd version.

    "Bad Town"

    They call it a scene I call it disaster
    Down here the kids grow up faster
    Scared they're scared to the bone
    Like a pack of wolves they don't run alone
    One on one they won't look you in the eye
    But when the pack's together there's a battle cry
    I saw it fifteen on one
    When the crowd dispersed the kid was done
    No (no more)
    No (bad town)
    No more bad town
    Yeah down there you gotta have a label
    Just like a cattle in a stable
    Knee jerk reaction I call it violence
    Why speak out when you could be silenced
    Down there on the dance floor
    Too much violence I dont want more
    Down there out on the street
    I can see the air I can see the heat
    [Chorus]

    A couple guys from Operation Ivy went on to form Rancid, which you might also want to check out if you like ska/punk.

    Pietasters absolutely kick ass! Saw 'em live a few times around DC and back in College. Great CDs and even better live show.

    Not sure how I missed this the first time... 17 years ago. How the F did that happen?

    Anyway, Did not know that about Rancid. Must be why I like them too.
    Oh, and while we are talking about awesome shit.
    Me First and the Gimmee Gimmees- if you haven't had the pleasure, you are very welcome.

    Great band, I played the shit out of their stuff in high school. I want to read the singer's book.

    Not ska-related but another band I really liked as a teenage punk was Too Much Joy, another 80's outfit that seems like they contributed to a lot of scenes (LI emo / pop punk) without having any huge success on their own.

    https://toomuchjoy.bandcamp.com/albu...eggs-and-crack

    serious dead milkmen / violent femmes / jonathan richman vibe.
    They got a name for the winners in the world
