The Toasters
Umbrella Bed
The Prizefighters

One of the most important American ska bands, the Toasters did much to popularize the genre on the underground scene in the mid- to late ’80s, laying the groundwork for later third-wave bands like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and ska’s subsequent explosion in popularity in the mid- to late ’90s.
