Fortnite is a set of memes and dances taken from TikTok, so let’s take a look at what this latest alien theme season brings us, because it is undoubtedly a timely and fashionable thing, such as… . Ska? Ha ha. Ok!
Actually, Skar is experiencing some kind of renaissanceTaking inspiration from the original ska music, which is all about loud, vibrant brass instruments, optimistic songs with staccato guitars, and the backward style of Jamaican ballrooms, a new group of ska artists are now on the scene. This will be the “fourth wave”, and the third wave takes place in the 90s-think of ska with pop punk colors, such as No Doubt, Less Than Jake, and Reel Big Fish.
Skar has always been concerned about the political landscape, whether Special singing of urban decay or The Mighty Mighty Bosstones Singing Women’s Health Clinic, So it’s no surprise that it has regained people’s interest today. Fortnite is jumping on the trend with its “Ska-Stra-Terrestrial” emoji, which makes the characters perform the “skank” dance that is well known in the ska circle.
The Fortnite ska dance is performed on a song that seems to be original, titled “Song of the Sun“, it’s all about wanting to see and/or be an alien. It’s damn catchy, but the lyrics are a bit dark:
“I know they are here to make friends with humansI want to meet them, greet them, and take my place on their shipin the skyTake me out of this world I despise”
Many of us may have learned about ska and ska-adjacent music through the Tony Hawk game and Crazy Taxi, so here is a question: would you like ska in the game more? Or is the Fortnite ska dance enough ska for the time being?
