The Clash are easily one of my favorite bands of all time! Their songwriting catalogue is just so incredibly diverse. My favorite Clash album is Sandinista! So much incredible music when you take the time to break it down piece by piece as they wanted people to. Personally I went through it 6 songs at a time (sides of a vinyl) and it changed my perspective completely! I highly recommend giving this a try.

Joe Strummer also goes down as easily one of my favorite lyricists of all time. So much passion in his writing.

Current favorite Clash song: Rebel Waltz. Gives me chills every time.

London Calling is my all-time favorite album, by any band ever. Also, (White Man) in Hammersmith Palais and (In the) Pouring Rain are two of my favorite songs ever.

My dad introduced me to The Clash as 'the Green Day of his generation' a five years ago because he wanted me to learn to appreciate some of the artists who influenced the younger generation of musicians. :D I don't think he realised at that point that I was - and still am - very open to and understanding of all generations and genres of music. I think I surprised him by taking more of a liking towards than him! I probably know more songs by the Clash than he does now.

You know when you figure out a song's lyrics and meaning, and then it becomes so much more awesome? I've experienced this with Safe European Home, awesome song! Sometimes forget how fortunate I am to live where I do.

Does anyone know what the phrase 'wrong 'em boyo' means? I've adopted it as a semi insult, playing on an English term 'wrong'un' but I've got no idea what it actually means.

I was talking to my dad about the Clash, and we were thinking, Strummer didn't have the technically greatest voice out there (though it fit the music fine) but there a few who can top him in terms of raw, tender emotion. Case in point: Train in Vain. Get behind it and you realise it's a kinda sappy song about being cheated by a girl. But his sincerity and the fact that he seems to really mean it, makes it more than that.

Train In Vain was actually sang by Mick Jones :P

 

Joe and him often shared lead vocal parts on songs.

You need to. Like an actual need. Everyone needs to listen to them.

I don't think any one song of theirs could do them justice. Well, maybe this one.

 

 

Listen to the entire London Calling and The Clash (US) albums. Two perfect albums.

Dammit, stupid grammar :lol:

 

Live it was always sung by Jones. I've never heard Strummer sing it live. On the recording they sang it together, by the sounds of it.

Sing/sang/sung is one even I get wrong, I'm not even sure if I was right :lol:

 

The song was definitely written by Jones, anyway :P
