For no real reason other than that we can, this week we’ll be showing you five great songs from various bands covering 2-tone icons The Specials. The band, who formed in 1979, was among the forefront of musicians to push ska music outside of the Caribbean, and their music became a unifying force among racial tensions in the UK in the 1980’s.
Today’s random cover comes from Britpop/indie rock band The Ordinary Boys paying their tribute with “Little Bitch” of of the 1979 self-titled album by The Specials. Check out their cover as well as the original here.
