The Beat aka The English Beat (in America) stood among the most popular of those bands from the "2 Tone/Punk" period of British popular music.

Along with The Clash they are easily my favorites.

This is Ranking Roger on vocals, Dave Wakeling on guitar and vocals, David Steele and Andy Cox (founding members of Fine Young Cannibals who scored international hits with Good Thing and She Drives Me Crazy) on bass and guitar, Everett Morton on drums and Saxa on sax.

The Beat.

Ranking Full Stop and Big Shot.

I couldn't help myself.

Having spent the appropriate amount of time empathizing with poor Hamid ... (OK that'll do it)

I flew straight to days gone by.

This is Pauline Black, Neol Davies and Compton Amenor on guitars, Desmond Brown on organ, Arthur "Gaps" Hendrickson getting beat up on stage (not really) et. al.

From the 1981 movie Dance Craze

The Selector 

Its gonna work out Hamid, you just gotta trust me on this one.
