here’s a set of tunes that the Jamaican Rude Boys would have been blasting out of their sound systems on the lawns and street corners, consisting of some huge tunes and some lesser known ones.

The Rude Boy moniker has its roots firmly set in the downtown districts of Kingston, Jamaica. there was an undercurrent theme to these songs that spoke of the struggles of the youth, of their confrontation, arrests and run-ins with the establishment. Some of these songs praised the Rude Boys for their stance and style while other songs were more in contempt with the Rude Boy’s attitudes, comings, goings and violent behaviour. Not only the more obvious Rude Boy tunes like ‘Gunmen Coming to Town’, ‘Dreader than Dread’, ‘Moon Hop’ but also some of the tunes that made the sound systems rock well into the night.
