2 Tone (music genre)2 Tone – This title is shorter and redirects here anyway, with the disambiguation page Two-tone sufficiently linked in a hatnote. --MASHAUNIX 17:35, 7 February 2016 (UTC) --Relisted. Natg 19 (talk) 08:11, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

2 Tone (music genre)Two-tone (music genre) – Lower-case "tone" per WP:NCCAPS, MOS:CAPS (do not capitalize genres); spell out "two" per MOS:NUM; hyphenate compound adjectives per MOS:HYPHEN. Doing a quick search that weeds out the proper name 2 Tone Records and Wikipedia itself [1], you find this written all sorts of ways, including "two-tone", "Two-Tone", "Two-tone", "twotone", "Twotone", "TwoTone", "2 tone", "2 Tone", "2-tone", "2-Tone", "2tone", and "2Tone". WP doesn't apply capital letters, numeral substitutions, or any other specialized stylization – even for registered trademarks, which this is not – unless the vast majority of sources do it consistently. Definitely not the case here. The hyphenation will be consistent with other similar titles such as eight-ball, three-cushion billiards, two-up two-down, three-strikes law, twelve-step program, etc., etc., etc.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  01:29, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Support "two-tone suits" In ictu oculi (talk) 10:12, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Neutral - I'm iffy on this one, as it's directly named after 2 Tone Records... Paintspot Infez (talk) 15:49, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Support While the record label was named 2 Tone, the genre seems to primarily go by "two tone". See Here, a documentary titled "Two Tone Britain", Here is a music album that uses "Two Tone" to clearly refer to the genre. You can see other albums on that page such as "Best of 2 Tone" which clearly refer to the record label. It appears that in the greater world, the two spellings have diverged such that "Two Tone Ska" or "Two Tone" refers to the musical genre, while "2 Tone" refers to Jerry Dammer's label. --Jayron32 16:21, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
    • And we don't capitalize music genres here; just a reminder.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  01:28, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Support per nom. Don't confuse the genre with the label. Dicklyon (talk) 05:04, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Support. Jayron's findings show that the genre can be spelled out. Binksternet (talk) 05:23, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
