The Specials Cover Week: The Dead Milkmen – “A Message To You, Rudy”

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. Watch our previous installments by The Ordinary Boys, Reel Big Fish, and Top Soil here, here, and here, respectively.

Today it’s The Dead Milkmen covering “A Message To You, Rudy,” once again off The Special’s self-titled debut. Click here for both versions of the song.
