In the background of Chipmunk's current single "Diamond Rings" (see video below) is what sounds like a ska cover of surf classic "Pipeline" (as also covered by the likes of Anthrax & Hanoi Rocks among others)
Sounds like it ought to be by the Skatalites & try as I might I can't find it.
Now given that some ska bands of the period I think it belongs had a tendency to record covers of well known songs under different titles to the originals (Illya Kuryakin ( a rocksteady version of Theme From A Summer Place) by Ike Bennett & The Crystalites being a particular case ), I'm wondering if if was released under another title.

Well done! I've been wracking my old rude boy brain all weekend over that.
The reggae folk are shockers for taking well known tracks and giving them different song titles and even no credit sometimes. They also do it the other way round. I bought what I thought was a reggae version of a famous film theme but it was some really stock dancehall track that bore no resemblance. Can't remember what was tho'
