UB40

  • How you know UB40: undoubtedly for their cover of Neil Diamond’s “Red Red Wine”
  • What you might not have known (besides the fact that it’s a Neil Diamond song): the name UB40 is a reference to a British unemployment benefit form, and Ali Campbell is the original lead singer
  • How they settled on that name: it just came to them when they met each other—while standing in the unemployment line
  • How they became known in Great Britain (and left unemployment behind): their strongly leftist politics, multiracial makeup, and close association with The Pretenders
  • Songs they’ve added a reggae beat to (other than “Red Red Wine”): The Temptations’ “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” Al Green’s “Here I Am (Come and Take Me),” and Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love”—their biggest hit to date
  • Their latest album with a political message: 2005’s Who You Fighting For?, which was nominated for the Best Reggae Album in 2006
  • Their latest album of transformative dancehall covers: 2013’s Getting Over the Storm, which set its rhythmic sights on country artists such as George Jones, Willie Nelson, and Randy Travis
