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.

The first single from the Specials' somewhat unfocused second album, "Rat Race" is both a restatement of the group's ska roots and something of a retrenchment. The first Specials single not written or co-written by leader Jerry Dammers, "Rat Race" is a Roddy Radiation-penned attack on the unthinking snobbery of the upper-middle-class university life. Given that students were a huge chunk of the Specials' audience, as shown in the song's cheeky video, there's an admirably "bite the hand that feeds" aspect to the lyrics
