Move over Pete Townshend | Reviewer: Jun Nicolas
The Clash were the real torch bearers clutching the torch previously held by Pete Tpwnshend and The Who. As Pete once said, its time to pass the flame on and the Clash are the only band he can think of that time that could carry on for them.
The only band that Matters | Reviewer: Anonymous
As the clash themselves stated they are the only band that matters. they do not conform to any one genre of music and therfore are ill-classified as a punk rock band. They were a magical band that split only because they all had their own awesome style and thoughts on where the band should be heading (that and topper headon loved him some drugs), as evidenced in strummers latter work with the mescaleros and jones' Big audio Dynamite.
the clash | Reviewer: mario
the clash is my favorite band, and in the explanation of the band, where is super black market clash? a great album that should not be forgotten!!.. best song complete control and white man in hammsersmith palais
Correction | Reviewer: Stagger Lee
The Clash split up because Mick Jones fucked them over, not the label. Mick wanted to change to a more pop-rap style when Strummer wanted to stick to punk rock and all the styles in Sandinista. If they would have stuck to the punk (It sounded awesome) they would have stuck together, instead Mick Jones decided to leave and start Big Audio Dynamite...
P.S. The entire album Sandinista is mind-blowing to the true Clash fan.
Great Band | Reviewer: Chris Chaos
This band is a fucking legend. Sucks the label they were on fucked em over. The Clash would have lasted longer if the label didnt treat them like crap.
Hmm i think theres only about 150 songs on here. well there are about 150 more the clash made but never ever got realeased. (not joe strummer solo or any other solo, just THE CLASH) And there are so many more versions. I dont want to give away the ultra rare never released album, but lets just say it was SUPPOSED to be combat rock but they were going to get sued if they didnt change the name and took their great songs off of there. Anyway. The Clash is a great band. Other then the other reviews you should check out more then just Combat Rock and London Calling, those are their mainstream albums. Albums: The Clash, Sandinista!, and Give 'em Enough Rope are great. Some great songs you should check out are The Guns of Brixton, Stay Free, All the Young Punks (New boots and Contracts), London Calling, Know your Rights, Ghetto Defendant, First night back in London, and many many others. The Clash is by far, one of my personal favorite Punk bands. Also, this is the music that helped create hip-hop and all that stuff. So check them out sometime! R.I.P. Joe Strummer 1952-2002!
