What do you guys think?

I think they were the greatest band to the face of this earth.

They played so many different styles of music ranging from rockabily to dub to rap etc , it was amazing. It's one of those bands that changed my life. and yes, there is more to the Clash than London Calling :wink: .

I really like the Clash.
I just got into them fairly recently.. but I'm happy that I did.

My favorite song is probably 1-2 Crush On You.

You should check out the first album, UK or US version is fine. Focused on the 1970's UK scene, great album, came right from the streets. It came from somewhere, it's not any of that phoney made up junk you might hear today, it's the real story of how it was back then in the streets of London and such.

and Sandinista!, that album is just a thrill, nice double disc album. They play just about everything on that album.

Yeah, they were the greatest punk band of all time.

Not specifically because of their music, but because they actally took the punk idea and DID something with it.

I like their different styles....it's all different and funky...

Like...you can go from songs on Combat Rock and then to songs on London Calling and be like "wtf? is this the same band?"

I think so, anyways...that's why I like them.... :D

I got a DVD of them for Christmas live at Wembley Stadium

I read the back where it said the songs they did, and ont he back when I read "God Save The Queen", I thought they did the Sex Pistols song :P

I'm an American who doesn't know an anthem from London, gimme a break :happy:

I really admire the Clash, and I agree with Terry about them being one of the best bands on earth! cause they fuckin are. Not just that they mixed all those styles, but the fact that they came right off the street and did something they really burned for.

the clash are one of the best bands ever.

as many of you said, the thing i like so much about them is that they mixed so many different styles of music, and one album never sounded like the last one.

I pretty much agree with what everyone else said. Sandinista! and LC are my favorites.

I have to admit that I still haven't listened to Cut the Crap, maybe someday I will, but I just can't get myself to do it.

Terry you insane cow, I wondered when you would start a topic like this! :lol:

The Clash is my favorites, the best band ever and they will always, no doubt be the fucking greatest punk band ever to exist on this planet.
The dumbest thing they could ever do was to kick Mick out of the band; I won’t deny the fact that Cut The Crap kinda sucked, it was pretty much like one desperate attempt by Joe and Paul keeping The Clash going. “We are the Clash” made me just sad, they weren’t The Clash anymore.
Read Last Gang In Town by Marcus Gray if you want to find out more about them, that book was awesome. Anyway, all time favorite album must be US version the clash or sadinista!
They never stopped believing in their thing, they just kept going and made it happen. They sang about stuff that truly mattered.
That’s something at least I admire in a time when the only thing people whine about these days seems unimportant and fake.

And Joe, rest in peace, you were truly one of a kind, his work with the Mescalerous was superb so if you get the chance, buy one of the records, especially Streetcore.

I have The Essential Clash album, it's just a cheap best-of i got at Tesco, hbut it has all their best songs. My favourite would be either: London's Burning, Rudy Can't Fail, Clash City Rockers, Bankrobber or Career Opportunities. Or This Is England.
