List Criteria: Upvote you favorite reggae rock bands

Rising to popularity in the 1990s, reggae rock combines elements of rock, reggae and ska music. The best reggae rock bands have achieved widespread popularity, notoriety and glory. You've probably heard a ton of reggae rock on the radio over the years, and even if you aren't familiar with the faces behind the music. Also called ragga metal, the genre remains popular today, especially on the California coast, where reggae rock initially spawned from. 

So, what are the best reggae rock bands? Any list has to start with the likes of Sublime (and even Sublime with Rome), 311, Fishbone, Rebelution, Iration, Slightly Stoopid and the Dirty Heads. These are recognized as some of the greatest reggae rock bands ever and with good reason. They are widely popular and their songs remain staples both in concert and on radio. Their material continues to resonate with fans and thus, it makes sense that they're considered among the best reggae rock bands.

That said it's up to you to determine what is the best reggae rock band. If you know reggae rock and notice that someone is missing from this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best reggae rock bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest reggae rock musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular reggae rock bands that you might've heard of.
