Thanks abunch(sorry if this should be somewhere else)

Skinhead moonstomp - Symarip
Liquidator - The pioneers
Rudy, A message to you - Dandy Livingstone

Liquidator - The pioneers

I LOVE THAT SONG

I only have the Harry J Allstars version though. Not even sure if it's the same song, but it's STILL AWESOME
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!

The best 2-tone band after the Specials = The Selecter. 3-Minute Hero is like one of the best songs ever.

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.
