Ska from the 1960"s is referred to as first wave ska and is well known as Reggae. in the late 1970"s the sounds of the exploding punk scene were thrown into the mix creating a fast, full-throttle sound that excited listeners. This wave is described as the second wave and is called 2-Tone. The newest wave has come out of the early nineties and is still popular. The third wave is often called Ska-Core with several 2-Tone bands returning from retirement to play along side the new guys.
