Skabba the Hut lives on in marching band form
The Yale Precision Marching Band, for reasons I will never fully understand, recorded a cover of Beatdown Stomp, a song by my old band, Skabba the Hut. Here it is:

Here's the original, for reference:
(We had changed our name to The El Conquistadors by then, because we were ashamed of being a ska band.)
It's a shockingly faithful cover, they even did my trumpet solo. Also, I want to take credit for the line near the end of the song, "You ain't so smooth with my syringe in your urethra." That was all me.
