Cool with me. I'll definitely spin some Clash today. In fact, I just did, thanks to this thread. I put on my copy of Give 'Em Enough Rope for the first time in forever.

Tommmmmmmyyyy Gunnnnnnn. I forgot about this song. RIP Joe.

I agree 100% with these sentiments, but as I am a supporter (not athletic) of all things Clash, I will attempt to listen to some of his music today even though I'm in tiny-town, Utah and only have an iPod with me.

i was on another board and they were shit-talking bands who've written joe strummer tribute songs, particularly using it as an opportunity to shit on the street dogs. me, personally, i don't see anything wrong with it.

so we've got...

stiff little fingers-strummerville
gaslight anthem-i'da called you woody, joe
street dogs-the general's boombox
street dogs-declaration

hmm, i could have sworn i came up with at least 6 earlier...

ah yes, that was mentioned on that other board as the only tolerable one, actually. that album is really growing on me. i keep hearing songs off it in record stores or on college radio stations and get psyched about it.


there's a line in rancid's "fall back down" about listening to the music of the great joe strummer...

I still prefer the 2 albums before it by quite a bit, but it did have a number of really good songs.

A couple of my friends are apparently friends with someone named "Jamie Jones", and every time her name comes up on the "People you may know" list on Facebook, I do a quadruple take.
