Bad Manners - Inner London Violence Lyrics

Rude Boy went in handsome hats
Policeman knocking with a rat-a-tat-a-tat
Them bored around the streets at night
They're not looking but they find a fight

I say inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence

Policemen coming there's no relief
Even your best friend is a thief
Soon locked up in your council flat
Machine gun go a rat-a-tat-a-tat

I say inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence

Hey hey hey

Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence

Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence
Inner London violence

  9. LA silversurfers

    I’ve always thought the Manners had the best brass section out of all the 2Tone bands😎

  10. Waqas Nawaz

    I would have never liked this track in my teens. But now, in my 30's I think it's absolute dynamite! <3

  11. Aww Mann

  13. holcroft1969

    I remember back in 1980 something, Me and my dear departed brother went to a wedding reception in a local community centre and he went up to the DJ and said 'Ere mate, you got any bad manners' and the DJ turned to him and said 'Yeah, I pick my nose and Fart in public, is that bad enough for you' great days and great memories indeed.

  14. Lee Neale

    More relevant now than ever. 2019

  15. France Clémence Fradet

    I pogoed to Bad Manners in London when I was 11. On the bus upstairs talking to boys and eating Space Dust or chips soaked in vinegar (and you'd suck the paper afterwards). The bus conductor would come and give you a paper ticket from his little metal machine, and you pulled on a cord to be let off the bus, and the platform at the back was open and you ran and jumped on even as the bus was moving off. The good old days when London was still working class and fun. Summer was 99 flake and Notting Hill carnival and Rude Boys and open air swimming pools with no petting allowed.

  21. José da Cunha Filho

    Great music and so much fun. There aren't bands like that any more. I am so glad I was there in the 80's to live it.

    Bernie Basset

    They're still going...

    And tbh, ska bands are very samey, any more would be pointless, music evolves for a reason.

    INNER LONDON VIOLENCE,met buster down the pub in stamford hill,alright geeza,hackney fella,mate now its real time INNA LONDON VIOLENCE


    Ahhh the good old days, when we appropriated the shit outta each others culture! Stereotypical jokes where banter! And racism was just a word! Microscopically thin!the young made their own culture and there was peace and understanding! Now mind what the media said about us all back then! And now what they're saying! It's them! (Media)all along! The juicy bastads!

  31. James Mcevoy

    El tunei😎

  68. Kostis asteras8

    Δεν ξέρω αν είναι φασίστες , αλλά το κομμάτι τα σπάει! Πολύ καλό! 

    Kostis asteras8

    @new reast φίλε, είπα ότι δεν ξέρω αν είναι φασίστες. Γενικά με τους σκινάδες η φάση είναι περίεργη από την άποψη ότι φασιστίζουν. Δεν τους έχω ψάξει ως συγκρότημα και εάν και τί ιδεολογία έχουν. Ό,τι διάβασα είναι από εδώ σχετικά με το κομμάτι αυτό και τους ναζί

    tasos kou

    +Kostis asteras8 λολ και εγω απο αυτο το αρθρο ηρθα εδω ..σιγα τι χαρντκοριλα που χορευαν οι σιστες! :P

  69. Glen Boyle

    the best of british steel ska man.

  70. Sol Jah

    If you're not at least tapping your foot to this superb song then get out now. Cheers for posting Scum

    Pedro Monforte

    You gotta know how to dance like Winston

    marco mint

    If you don't feel like getting up in the office and starting to dance aggressively to your colleagues when you hear this there's got to be something wrong with you.

    Oleh SZTUL

    Agreed brother, this song is just awesome and this is coming from a Metalhead.

    Jamez Pantz

    @Oleh SZTUL heaviest of the heavy, but ska is just awesome

  73. GoodeDogg


  74. Stephen Bennett

    Brilliant band

  75. doc breaknik

    great band. wish they all got back together... NOTE TO ALL SKA FANS WHO HAVE SEEN BAD MANNERS PLAY LIVE IN THE LAST 10 -15 YEARS: Watching Buster 'toss it off' with 2 skin heads behind him (with guitars that aren't even stringed) in a pub,, is not watching bad manners live. ..

  76. Victor Pechorin

    I ended up here by listening to this band for more than 10 years.

  77. Nathan Nowell

    how did you end up here, out of interest?

    jake mendon

    Looking 4 a song with the word violence in the lyrics. Actually that mite b the only lyric.

  78. flatleythebard

    In fact, Ska 'n' B is an anagram of "Banks" so even back in the 80's banks were considered huffy chuffy tugboats.

  79. ian thorn

    you dummy ska'n'b was a pun

    Paul Young

    ian thorn

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!

  80. WengerOut


  81. Victor Pechorin

    They never played Ska'n'B, in fact, Ska'n'B is nonexistent, because R'n'B has a different kind of syncopation.

  82. Sophie Raven

    How true!!

  83. alex monty

    rewind to Aug 2011 selecta!
