The Specials Rude Boy Men's T-shirt, White

$ 21.95

White t-shirt for adults features The Specials 'Rude Boy' design printed in black with a British mod fashion-influenced checkerboard pattern. Ultra soft premium 100% cotton. A perfect tribute to the Ska movement popular in the seventies UK punk rock and skinhead subculture. As part of 2-Tone Records, bands like The Specials, Madness, and Selecter dominated the music charts and turntables in England in the eighties. Led by frontmen Neville Staple, who later formed Fun Boy Three, and Paul Williams, the mix of white boy punk and rude boy ska had its roots in Jamaican street culture. Rude boy, a slang term used to describe fans of the rocksteady and reggae music genre, was adopted by nineties urban and street culture, and today's gangsta and dubstep music.
