Cockney Rejects - The Greatest Cockney Ripoff


On this date in 1980, Cockney Rejects released their fourth single, "The Greatest Cockney Ripoff". It was backed by "Hate Of The City". Both songs were on their second studio album, Greatest Hits Volume 2 (this is what they named their first three albums except the volume number changed with each release. They were not, in fact, greatest hits albums). The single reached the #21 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London Oi! band continues to record and perform.
