Slackers are awesome skas that keep growing
While they co-existed with the third wave of ska in the 1990s, which saw bands like Reel Big Fish and Mighty Mighty Bosstone become breakout stars of alternative radio, Slackers is not suitable. They favored the traditional ska of the 1960s and the slower, more fluid rocksteady, while their contemporaries incorporated punk into their songs. They also don’t shy away from fertilizing their records with other influences – jazz, soul, boogaloo and even country – and they’ve always emphasized that songwriting, over the years, has become a staple more collective process.
