A style of Jamaican Reggae. First there was Ska, which evolved into Reggae which has several styles: Rock Steady, Rub-A-Dub, Dancehall etc.
The term "Rub-a-Dub" comes from a dance style where the man and woman rub up very close together and grind their hips to the beat.
Most of the music of Bob Marley and the Wailers is in a Rub-A-Dub style.
