Skate punk (sometimes called skate core or skate rock) is a sub genre of punk rock, originally a derivative of the West Coast hardcore punk scene, that is named after its popularity among skateboarders and association with skateboarding culture. Skate punk most commonly describes the sound of melodic hardcore bands from the 1990s with an aggressive sound, and similar sounding modern bands. Skate videos have traditionally featured this aggressive style of punk rock to parallel the feel of skateboarding. This played a big part in the coining of the term "skate punk". However, some bands who are commonly referred to as skate punk do not embrace the label because they do not necessarily associate with skateboarding despite what the label would imply. Skate punk has gained popularity all around the world, including the Nardcore punk scene out of Oxnard, California.
