White Riot Lyrics - The Clash

Review The Song (1)



White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

Black people gotta lot a problems
But they don't mind throwing a brick
White people go to school
Where they teach you how to be thick

An' everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
An' nobody wants
To go to jail!

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

sponsored links
All the power's in the hands
Of people rich enough to buy it
While we walk the street
Too chicken to even try it

Everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
Nobody wants
To go to jail!

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

Are you taking over
or are you taking orders?
Are you going backwards
Or are you going forwards?

White Riot They don't write songs like this anymore | Reviewer: randy thomson | 2/24/09

This song has stood the test of time. The first punk song I ever heard besides Love's"7 and & Is" it still sounds fresh, more than thirty years later. The Clash were, for a few years there, "The only band that mattered." There's so much energy in the song, singing simple, but effective lyrics, and Mick Jones was just beginning to show what he could pull off on guitar. They shouldn't have let their egos get in the way and tear themselves apart. They were needed long after we had to play their old stuff to hear something that meant anything.
