* IncrediblyLamePun: The ska pun started with one of the early '60s bands, the Skatalites, but it got really ridiculous in the '90s, when it seemed like every other band name or album title was one. A couple of the worst: Flux Skapacitor, Mephiskapheles

* IncrediblyLamePun: The ska pun started with one of GenreBusting: It's not uncommon for bands to have other musical influences besides the early '60s bands, the Skatalites, but it got really ridiculous obvious {{Ska}} and PunkRock ones- for example, HeavyMetal in the '90s, when it seemed like every other band name case of Music/TheMightyMightyBosstones and Music/ReelBigFish, or album title was one. A couple of {{Reggae}} and {{HipHop}} in the worst: Flux Skapacitor, Mephiskaphelescase of Sublime. Music/{{Rancid}} experimented with PopPunk, HardcorePunk, Rockabilly, Reggae, Latin Music and Blues at various times, as well...



* 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 Music/TheMightyMightyBosstones and Music/ReelBigFish, or {{Reggae}} and {{HipHop}} in the case of Sublime.

In 1995, ska punk was finally brought to mainstream attention with the release of Music/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. Music/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 ChokingVictim (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.

However, ska's fifteen minutes of fame in America were soon up. Unlike {{Britpop}}, which was clearly finished off by the third {{Oasis}} album, it's hard to place a definite GenreKiller for ska punk. A lot of bands split up, while others (such as No Doubt, Less Than Jake and the Aquabats) changed their sound a bit. Even so, there were plenty of bands that stuck to their ska guns, such as Reel Big Fish or the Bosstones, who continue to play to audiences who remain as rabid as ever, and every so often bands - such as Chase Long Beach and Streetlight Manifesto - come along who look like they may revive ska for a fourth wave.
