Re: Bosstones break up

I’ll miss them and their superlative cover of Detroit Rock City. Thank you for your service FWIW, I think "The Impression That I Get" was the second best Ska song of the 90s. They had some other great tunes too. Aye, they had some good 'uns. What was the first best ska song of the 90s by your recko...

I have to take exception with this.
And I take umbrage with your exception.
I make no excuses but that little black dot was from the 90s.
