Strictly Rude is the fourth full-length album from Boston ska punk act Big D and the Kids Table. The album peaked at 42 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart.[6]

Title track[edit]

The album's title track "Strictly Rude" is largely derived from Althea & Donna's Uptown Top Ranking which topped the UK charts in February 1978. While most of the song's lyrics have been rewritten to bear little semblance to the Althea & Donna version, the song's chorus sees the original line "Strictly Roots"[1] changed to the track and album's title, "Strictly Rude".

Noise Complaint[edit]

Possibly the album's biggest hit, it rose to popularity based on its popular DIY music video that is rising in popularity on YouTube and other video sharing websites.
