The most important thing is their love of 2nd wave ska, known as 2 tone (record label with the Specials).
Often confused (ignorantly) with chavs. Rudeboy clothing is smart and respectable, and is now crossed with mod clothing.
They aren't gangster, either.
Rudies in Love - The Ordianry Boys
Rudeboys are simply males who feel it is their place in society to beat up small children, attempt to mug people because they forgot their bus fare, and loiter around the local mcdonalds for hours in posses of 5-7 members. They insanely uncomfortable baseball caps, schott jackets, ugly looking mainstream sports brand tracksuits and ALWAYS tight nike trainers, regardless of whether what their actual activities involve playing sports, which is what the clothes they wear are actually designed for. Their hobbies consist of being threatening (they try), talking utter shit and listening to arrogant black men talking about themselves over repetitive beats. FUN FUN FUN!!! they appear to depict fun as causing inconvenience to members of the public. when they're not doing that, theyre threatening members of the public. the rude boy is easily offended by any insult wayward comment, or even look in their general direction. any thing which offends them (often for no apparent reason) prompts a tirade of offensive gestures, threats and attempted 'blapsing' (when the rudeboys croud round someone, and attempt to inflict pain on their unsuspecting victim). Their anger and mannerisms stem from their overpowering desire to act as though they were raised in a cardboard box in 'tha ghetto' by their speed freak mom. Im sure upper class suburban life is ever so hard. This redundant feeling of hostility is amplified by the garbage mini pop junkies and rudeboys alike listen to : RAP MUSIC. Rap music is nothing but arrogant black men praising their pimped up life style:fast cars with 'twennys on em', half naked 'bitches' with huge derieres shaking their tits, big groups of ridiculously dressed men attempting to act intimidating and boyish, and their gigantic piles of feminine esque jewelery which they wear in copious amounts every where visible for all the shallow bitches to swoon at and get hitched the same night. rude boys of the british and non L.A gangster category buy into this turgid crap, because it gives them a false sense of empowerment. they use this false sense of empowerment on any member of the public dumb enough to listen, and if no one listens, they confront someone and make them listen. Basically the rude boy in its current form (a sad asre school dropout with a total lack of credibility) is a piece of shit thats not worth a minute of anyones time, because if you give them your time theyll try and mug you.
Rudes are at epidemic proportions in england and should be culled to keep the population under control.
Rudes can be identified by their almost vertical baseball caps, skin tight clothes, trousers tucked into their socks, masses of jewelry (even males, if you can call them males).
"Go to bed!"
and "Cmon then! Ya wanna fight"
to witch you reply yes because they are 5 years younger than you, then their druggie brother with a knife and a huge "possy" jumps out from the bin they live in.
Rude boys hate anyone who does not conform to this stereotype. Anyone who shows any signs of individuality and doesn’t enjoy listening to 50 Cent, Tupac or even Blazin' Squad (A bunch of teenage pricks with abnormally small heads and a fixation with prostitutes who probably all went to Oxford and whose parents own villas in the south of France).
I could go on...but I wont 'cos this definition could turn into a novel.
So, to summarise. A rude boy is the very epitome of British conformism and cowardice.
They are scum.
INDIVIDUAL: "Sure you did Eugene...we all believe you."
