The Specials is the debut album by British ska revival band The Specials. Released on 19 October 1979 on Jerry Dammers' 2 Tone label, the album is seen by some as the defining moment in the UK ska scene. Produced by Elvis Costello, the album captures the disaffection and anger felt by the youth of the UK's "concrete jungle"-a phrase borrowed from Bob Marley's 1972 album Catch a Fire but equally apposite used here to describe the grim, violent inner cities of 1970s Britain.

Rudy A message to you, Rudy A message to you. Stop your messing around (ah-ah-ah) Better think of your future (ah-ah-ah) Time you straighten right out (ah-ah-ah) Creating problems in town (ah-ah-ah). Rudy A message to you, Rudy A message to you, Rudy Oh, it's a message to you, Rudy Yeah, it's a message to you, Rudy.
