In 1985, Herbert Vianna (Os Paralamas do Sucesso) recommended that EMI sign Plebe Rude, and he produced their first album, a seven-track project called O Concreto já Rachou. The album was lauded by critics, being appointed the best of Brazilian rock, and sold 250,000 copies. With the illustrious presence of Fernanda Abreu and George Israel (Kid Abelha) among the crowd, the album was released at two shows at the Noites Cariocas (Rio) in February 1986. In the next year, the band moved to Rio. In the I Festival Alternativa Nativa, at the Canecão, the band released their second album, Nunca Fomos Tão Brasileiros, which was also produced by Herbert Vianna and featured a string quartet in the song "A Ida." "Censura" was vetoed by censorship.
In November 1988, Plebe Rude came to light. With lighter lyrics, the album focused on the band's instrumental aspect, incorporating elements of baião, repente, and samba. The result was a weaker-selling, but still considerable, album, which sold 40,000 copies.
After a crisis and subsequent break, Seabra and Muller resurrected Plebe Rude in 1993, recording the LP Mais Raiva do que Medo through Natasha. Continuing to do a series of shows, the group reached a dead end in 1994 when Seabra returned to the U.S.A.. ~ Alvaro Neder, Rovi
