Ska punk is a fusion music genre that combines ska and punk rock.[1] It achieved its highest level of commercial success in the United States in the late 1990s.[2] Ska-core (sometimes spelled skacore) is a subgenre of ska punk, blending ska with hardcore punk.[3]

The more punk-influenced style of ska punk often features faster tempos, guitar distortion, onbeat punk rock-style interludes (usually the chorus), and punk-style vocals. The more ska-influenced style features a more developed instrumentation and a cleaner vocal and musical sound. Common instruments include electric guitar, electric bass, drums, brass instruments, reed instruments and keyboards.
