 Reggae lyrics are often incomprehensible to
  Americans, as they are usually in an English-
  based but distinctly Jamaican
 Reggae was a precursor not just to the
  modern Jamaican style of Dub, but to
  American Ska (think No Doubt, Sublime, Reel
  Big Fish), Jam-bands (Incubus, Dave
  Matthews Band).
 Calypso is a genre of Afro-Caribbean music
  that comes primarily from the island of
  Trinidad.
 The lyrics of traditional Calypso music are
  generally political in nature.
 Calypso music became something of an
  international craze when Harry Belafonte first
  scored a major U.S. hit in 1956 with "Day-O"
  (the Banana Boat Song).
