4. AMEN!
Edited on Fri Dec-17-10 11:02 PM by drmeow
I think that Clampdown is one of my favorite songs every and I may never forgive my brother from dragging me out of the US Festival '83 while they were playing it! Admittedly we had been there for more than 12 hours, enjoyed/sat through at least 7 other bands and he wasn't a fan but still! Of course, given that I was dancing my ass off right in front of a 2 story high stack of speakers, he may have saved my hearing :) (I will also never forget the verbal abuse we endured from the metal fans waiting in line for the next day's concerts as we were leaving.)

One of the saddest things - I was hanging out at a club with this guy I knew who was right wing. I pointed out that the Clash, whom he LOVED, was a socialist band - listen their lyrics - and he basically said he knew that but just ignored the words and enjoyed the music.

Edit to add:

Big Audio Dynamite often did a nice job, too.
