Speaking of reggae/ska, i love this tune but i can't remember the name, will you help me folks ?

Well that's exactly what i meant (sometimes it's a bit difficult for me to express exactly what i wanna say in English). They took the 80's bad taste to its limits. The "gabber" scene is (was?) quite huge, and not all of them are (was?) skinheads BTW. They have (had?) in common hardcore techno.
Yes a kind of skinhead uchronia. The same happened with 80s skins, like if they continued to evolve to the contemporary sinister Gabber skins (not sure you heard of them before, you find them in the north of France, Belgium, and Netherlands), who replaced Oi by techno.
Never been a big fan of Johnny i must say, even if he's a kind of institution here. He's not the only French singer (well in his case half French half Belgian) who made a lot of covers in the 60s/70s... Claude François was another one, and the first to sing My way, that he co-wrote.
That's part of what i understood thanks to this thread, while some of you - a minority ?- were into music, others were into gangs - street fighting men -, football, or just fashion. And maybe a mix of all of that for the others...
