Ranking Roger Biography (Wikipedia)

Roger Charlery (21 February 1963 – 26 March 2019), known professionally as Ranking Roger, was a British musician. He was a vocalist in the 1980s two-tone band the Beat (known in North America as the English Beat) and later General Public. Later he headed up a reformed Beat lineup.

The "Ranking" moniker is short for "top-ranking" or "high-ranking", and is a boast typical of many MCs.
