Bring back the days of 2-tone! The Specials were one of the biggest (if not the biggest) bands of the second wave of ska, and were often considered The Rolling Stones of ska, due to their incorporation of straight up rock and roll.
Definitely a must for any fan of the genre, although even people who dislike ska have been known to enjoy The Specials. Check it out!
