Alright, here we go.  Party at Ground Zero is one of the most important ska singles of the post-2Tone era.  It was the some of the first real groundwork for the whole third wave of ska.  The Toasters were already active in New York, but Fishbone had much more widespread mainstream access to the public.  A major label contract will do that for you.  Anyway, I love this song.  I will always love this song.  There was a music video - it was silly.  Go look it up on YouTube.  I'll wait.  The sleeve from the U.S. and Japanese 12"s feature a whole bunch of screen shots from the video.  The 12"s contain some interesting remixes of the title track, along with a good alternate version of Skankin' to the Beat (alternate to the version found on the Say Anything... soundtrack).
