** Crack Rock Steady takes this up to eleven by writing songs about drug use, anarchism (more typically in the traditional sense, not the AnarchyIsChaos way - although there may be some overlap), and police brutality, among other "darker" subjects. The [[song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56flbcUqAB8]] that named the subgenre is about a 3 or so on the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness, but the lyrics blatantly describe the singer's hatred for police officers, to put it lightly.

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. For a while, ska punk was pretty popular.

In the early 2000ís another wave of ska punk came about called Crack Rock Steady, fusing Ska, Crust Punk and DeathMetal.

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.

* LyricalDissonance: A complete set of examples would probably fill a page on their own. This trope was practically a trademark of the genre. In short: most Ska Punk songs have bouncy, upbeat music and superficially sound extremely happy, but if you actually pay attention to the lyrics they are some of the most cynical, sarcastic, snide and/or self-deprecating songs ever written.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Anywhere from a 4 to a 7, depending on how much HardcorePunk / HeavyMetal vs. Music/{{Ska}} / {{Reggae}} influence a given band has. Many bands also go up and down the scale depending on the song, or even within a song.

By the late 1980s, the most successful American ska scene was developing in California, where short-lived but hugely influential groups like Operation Ivy combined hardcore and ska influences to create their own brand of ska-core. A west coast alternative to Moon Ska appeared in the form of the Asian Man Records label, formed by Skankin' Pickle saxophonist Mike Park. After the huge success of {{Grunge}} and PunkRock in the early to mid-nineties, ska was well placed to enter the mainstream. Early successes to come out of the California scene included reggae fusion masters {{Sublime}}, Op Ivy offshoots {{Rancid}}, whose album ''... And Out Come the Wolves'' was the first American ska record to be certified Gold and some punk bands, like Music/{{NOFX}} and TheOffspring, who also recorded some ska-influenced songs.

* NeoClassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: It's not uncommon for bands to have other musical influences besides the obvious Ska and Punk- for example, HeavyMetal in the case of the MightyMightyBosstones 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...

* OneHitWonder: Reel Big Fish and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones have only really had one charting hit each: "Sell Out" and "The Impression That I Get," respectively. However, both bands have major cult followings.
