The Specials (also known as The Special AKA) is an English "2 Tone" ska revival band formed in 1977 in Coventry, England. Their music combines a danceable ska beat with punk's energy, underpinned by an informed political and social stance.

The group was formed by songwriter/keyboardist Jerry Dammers, with Terry Hall (vocals), Lynval Golding (guitar, vocals) and a rhythm section featuring Horace Panter (bass) and John Bradbury (drums; born 16 February 1953, died 28 December 2015).
