A Conversation for Reggae

Song name

Hi there all,

I recently saw the French film "La Haine". The beginning scene is a riot, with some reggae playing over it. It was billed as Bob Marley, but a friend of mine says that it's probably Ziggy. Anyway, the song goes something like:

" Stealin' and a-lootin' tonight "

Something like that. That's all I know about it, I'm afraid.

Anyway, can anyone tell me the song name, or who it's by, or what album it's on, or all three, so I can go out and buy it?

Original is Bob's. Name is Burning and Looting. I've also heard a few remakes.
