Default The Specials

where the Specials fans at?
My favorites gotta be Concrete Jungle, Gangsters, Too Much too young, ghost town, and more. I liked the s/t more than the More Specials album, although both were quite different and good. Opinions?

Ghost town was one of the first records I ever got when I was 4 or 5 years old

Ghost town is one of the coolest songs ever. I like the specials alot. Very very good band. They do a mean cover of Bob Dylans "maggies Farm" too.

The Specials are an awesome band. I love stuff off their self-titled cd like "A Message to You Rudy", "Concrete Jungle", and "Stupid Marriage."

The Specials are so cool... Got to know their song "A Message To You, Rudy" through a soundtrack and loved it.

My second favourite two tone band behind the Selecter. They had a great sound and some good tunes although I do like the cover songs better than their original songs.
