Try to think what it would sound like if Skynyrd and Rancid mated and had a Rasta baby. Something like that. Reggae, rock, ska, punk and more all rolled into one unique and recognizable sound.

Lyrics

Rudeboy Riot

Written By: SunDown

Well I remember when the city went silent
The day the rudeboys got a little bit violent
Rude boy
It was a rudeboy riot

Ten years gone by
You were finally flyin'
Whoa so high
But I got to say it was a hell of a time
You had to leave us
Now we got to know why

You were so rude (so rude!)
What happened to you?
What happened to you?
You were so rude (so rude!)
But its no use (so rude!)

So rude
You were so rude
Hangin' in the back of that dark smoky room
Pin stripe suit tattoos and black and white shoes
Man you made us want to be just like you
Home town throw down
Every year you come around
Sold out stroll out
Never really had a doubt
Now we make it to that show
Somewhere in that front row
But all we got to know now
Is where did you go?

You were so rude (so rude!)
What happened to you?
What happened to you?
You were so rude (so rude!)
But its no use (so rude!)

(You! where did you go?) (Repeat background)

Well since you left us
Weve come to the conclusion
That a rudeboy revolution
Is just the right solution
So we can move on
We got to be movin' on
From Cali down to Boston
Whatever the city youre lost in
The seed that still remains
Its gettin' better every day
You used to say we got to fight
The only way is to unite
And stick together
If we ever
Want to make it in this life

Well I remember when the city it went silent
The day the rudeboys got a little bit violent
Rude boy
It was a rudeboy riot

You were so rude (so rude!)
What happened to you?
What happened to you?
You were so rude (so rude!)
But its no use (so rude!)

You were so rude (so rude!)
What happened to you?
What happened to you?
You were so rude (so rude!)
But its no use
