True innovators of the punk era, the Specials began the British ska revival craze, combining the highly danceable ska and rocksteady beat with punk's energy and attitude, and taking on a more focused and informed political and social stance than their predecessors and peers.

Their agenda of racial harmony and social inclusion was pursued through their music, and came to be described as the Two Tone movement. Identified also by their distinctive look, the band wore mod-style 1960s period "rude boy" outfits (pork pie hats, tonic andmohairsuits, and loafers) that were adopted by fans and musical followers alike.

The band enjoyed seven consecutive U.K. Top 10 singles between 1979 and 1981.

More Specials was released in October 1980. The album hit the Top Five in the U.K., where singles "Rat Race," "Stereotype" and "Do Nothing" hit the Top Ten. "Rat Race" hit No. 89 on Billboard Music Chart's (U.S.) Club Play Singles chart, while the album hit No. 98 on Billboard's Top 200 albums chart.
