What Does TWO-TONE Mean?

TWO-TONE (or 2-TONE) is a genre of British pop music, which emerged in the late 1970s, in Coventry, England.

Inspired by the first wave of Jamaican SKA, TWO-TONE was mainly limited to the UK. However, it is credited with inspiring the the third wave of SKA, which developed in the US in the 1980s and 1990s.

TWO-TONE was the name of a (now defunct) record label founded in 1979, by Jerry Dammers, of the band "The Specials." The name TWO-TONE was inspired by the racial mix of many of the bands and it came to be seen by many as representative of a multi-racial Britain.
