The Specials – “Rat Race” mp3

One of the gr8est bands of all time, the creators of Two-Tone, and more than anyone else the band responsible for popularizing ska beyond Jamaica and making it a huge internationally known genre, The Specials! Here is their classic, oh-so-British rant about class and scarves, “Rat Race.” From the More Specials album, an absolute must-have. No ska collection is complete without Specials records. Skank on.

UPDATE: This great track is no longer available here! I’m leaving this post up so you’s can goog it! Woof!

Buster the Ska Doggie

Buster the Ska Doggie was born on July 4th, 2008 when The Uptones released their epic Skankin' Foolz Unite! album. Jesse Michaels drew Buster for the record cover and Buster leaped off of it and started dancing around. Before long Buster had amassed a massive collection of ska records and friends and has been to every single ska show on earth, usually attending at least 100 around the world, all at the same time. Don't ask how he does it. Buster blogs at and you also can find him on FB and Twitter. W00f!
