Why is Ska in the same category as Punk? Sure 3rd wave bands can be easily put into punk cause 3rd wave is nearly all ska-core bands, but real ska fans will agree that ska has existed without punk since the beginning. It's unique and just not connected enough to punk that they need to share a category.

because this division was probably made when 3rd wave ska was big or something & people actually cared about ska.

also 'cuz second wave ska was happening in the UK around the same time as punk & some punks were into ska & reggae.
you can probably blame the clash, who - jacks of all trades, masters of none - incorporated elements of ska in their own tunes.

The 2 Tone movement as well, The Specials, Madness and Bad Manners were a fusion of Ska and Punk.

2-Tone DID fuse punk with ska but there was also a very heavy jamaican influence.

Namely Ska, which comes from Jamaica.

What I mean by that is it had a large Jamaican ska influence as well as punk. And of course the large amount of original Jamaican ska that was more jazz and rocksteady than anything.

Whoa, buddy, this is a punk forum, not a Ska forum. You're in the wrong neighborhood.

I love punk, I consider myself a punk, I was just bringing up something I thought was odd.

They were more closely associated back when this forum was made. Who could have guessed that ska would someday essentially cease to be a thing. (Well, everyone.)
