This thread will soon be filled with people who hate The Clash and think they are overrated, but God damn I still really enjoy their music.

There are a lot of bands that are overrated, but the Clash aren't one of them. Anyone who thinks otherwise should be given a strong dose of antipsychotics.

They had already reunited for another BBC show aired last week.
It was on BBC Radio 4's Front Row.

It was a nice little doc/interview with the 3 guys and also Joe in an old interview for the same show before his death - his rantings are funny as fark! Man, I miss that guy.

I worshiped The Clash and The Who when I was a kid. I mean I really worshiped them. They were  important.

Now, 30 years later, I still like The Clash but can't remember why I liked The Who.

Loved The Clash. Saw them in Jamaica in 82 with Joe Jackson, Squeeze, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Buffet Grateful Dead, The Beach Boys, Peter Tosh and dozens of ska and reggae bands at Jamaica World Music Festival. London Calling and Rock the Casbah were huge on MTV. Should I Stay or Should I Go was my liquor-drinking theme song. Even though If I Go There Will Be Trouble, If I Stay There Will Be Double...


I usually stayed

Those guys rocked my then young ass as hard as they pleased!!!

I liked the Clash (up to "Cut the Crap"). They're one of the few bands that could drastically change their sound but remain the same high energy band they'd always been.


As for The Who

Listen to the following albums a few times and you'll remember why.

- The Who Sell Out

- Live at Leeds

- Tommy

- Who's Next

- Quadrophenia

Streetcore is one of my favorite albums. Hell, I enjoy all three of the Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros albums immensely.

I don't think The Clash are overrated, I just couldn't get into them (aside from the hits - like that teacher in the Portlandia sketch).

The Who and The Jam both had very enjoyable guitar riffs, simple and energetic.

Love the Clash. Their music still holds up well today even though many bands copied their style.

On the Joe Strummer documentary film they had a lotta musicians saying they were peeved at him for going a bit off the deep end and firing everyone.  They lamented all the great music that SHOULD have been but never was.

I put on Combat Rock during the breaks at a recent gig....that record is truly brilliant.  A collage of different styles and moods combine to result in something completely and utterly unique.  Too bad the only thing most will ever hear from that gem is Should I Stay or Casbah.

/but man, Mick Jones ain't lookin' so good these days...not that he ever did!
//oh, and don't ever sing London Calling if you're in a cab

Thank you for reminding me of the names of albums I probably listened to about 20,000 times. I'd quite forgotten.

Better than the overrated London Calling:

Love The Clash, saw them five times at the Hollywood Palladium on the Combat Rock tour, the Friday show is easily one of the very best concerts I've ever been to.

Of course, The Clash Joe Strummer made one of the worst albums every by a major band, Cut The Crap, but that's OK, when they had Topper and Mick, they were an incredible band.

Cool. Too bad Joe won't be there.
 
2013-08-19 08:28:55 PM
still mad my mom wouldn't take me to go see them in omaha on the combat rock tour

/was 12

death or glory...it's just another story
