** The genre has been abandoned to a greater-or-lesser extent by this demographic in recent years though- they tend to prefer Top 40 Pop and RnB, {{GangstaRap}} / GlamRap and Brostep (a subgenre of Music/{{Dubstep}}) these days. Back in the 90s/early 2000s, on the other hand...

* OneHitWonder: ReelBigFish and TheMightyMightyBosstones have only really had one charting hit each: "Sell Out" and "The Impression That I Get," respectively. However, both bands have major cult followings.

That's the musical style in a nutshell. To elaborate on the history of the genre, we'd have to go back to New York City in the early 1980s, where the first American ska scene began to develop. Much of the credit for the early development of American ska can be attributed to Robert "Bucket" Hingley, a British expatriate who enjoyed 2 Tone ska, founded his own band (The Toasters) and created the Moon Ska Records label, which recorded almost every noteworthy East Coast group at some point. Around the same time, a group of school friends from Massachusetts started TheMightyMightyBosstones, whose fusion of ska and HardcorePunk was influential in the development of the ska-core style.

* NeoClassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: It's not uncommon for bands to have other musical influences besides the obvious {{Ska}} and PunkRock ones- for example, HeavyMetal in the case of TheMightyMightyBosstones and ReelBigFish, or {{Reggae}} and {{HipHop}} in the case of Sublime. Music/{{Rancid}} experimented with PopPunk, HardcorePunk, Rockabilly, Reggae, Latin Music and Blues at various times, as well...

In 1995, ska punk was finally brought to mainstream attention with the release of NoDoubt's multi-platinum ''Tragic Kingdom'' album, which created a big demand for similar-sounding groups. 1996 and 1997 would be the peak years for the Third Wave revival. ReelBigFish, Sublime and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones all had hit singles on the Modern Rock charts, while groups like Less Than Jake and Mustard Plug skanked it up in Florida and the mid-west respectively and music by Save Ferris or the Toasters featured in films or TV. And while the mainstream focused on the aforementioned bands, the underground scene of the late 90's and early 2000ís saw a minor subgenre of ska punk form, dubbed "Crack Rock Steady". The subgenre was pioneered by bands like Choking Victim (the TropeNamer), Morning Glory, No Ca$h, and Music/LeftoverCrack, which fused ska, crust punk and DeathMetal into one package. For a while, ska punk was pretty popular.
