    UB40 are an English reggae and pop band, formed in December 1978 in Birmingham, England. The band has had more than 50 singles in the UK Singles Chart, and has also achieved considerable international success.

    UB40 is one of the bands that introduced me to reggae music. The vocals is impressive. I use to include Red Red Wine and Fools Rush In on my mixtapes. I even had my hair dreds when I was in college.

    My dad actually introduced me to UB40. He had their records and I remember being obsessed with 'Red red wine' which was his favorite tune from the group.

    Hi everyone. I used to like UB40 but at the height of their career band sold records, but an increasingly bitter feud has set brother against brother in a legal dispute that has reached the high court.

    It is a shame how success can turn someone you used to know very well (a close friend if you will) from an ally to your biggest enemy. This has and will always be the number one achilles heel for most bands/groups.

    I remember the UB40 song, that was a big hit when they first started out- "Red Red Wine" and they played it on MTV all the time I believe(no YouTube back then). I like "Kingston Town" as well and was listening to it lately-but I don't remember it as well, when it first came out.
