Guns of Brixton is one of my favorite Clash songs also. I listened to that today. I like. I'll have to try to download their version.

Ok, I have to say this yet again, I cant believe there arent more The Clash fans here. I mean, I've heard and seen U2, particularly Bono, go on and on and on and on about The Clash. Bono always talks about how the first concert he ever went to was the Clash. I've heard Bono say that The Clash are the only band that he would never have wanted to play after (because you're going to have a heck of a time following that act!)

U2 fans, YOU MUST GO BUY LONDON CALLING OR THE CLASH - THE SINGLES IF YOU DONT HAVE THEM!!!!!! YOU CANNOT CONSIDER YOURSELF A TRUE MUSIC FAN IF YOU DONT LIKE THE CLASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guns Of Brixton is excellent...

How did all the Clash-heads here get into the Clash? For me it was odd...I got into them about two years ago, when I was first getting into all this music. I've heard of them (but not heard them) and thought they were some rubbish three chord shouting stuff. I went out and bougth Garbage's s/t debut one day, and on 'Stupid Girl' they took the loop from 'Train In Vain'. I didn't know what a loop was, but I downloaded the song anyway and was blown away. I got a couple more tracks and ran out to buy London Calling some weeks later, and proceeded to wear it out. Sadly I do not have all their material - I'm missing Give 'Em Enough Rope (I'd better run out and get this one) and I have the US version of their first album compared to the UK one (which is supposedly better), and no, I do not own Sandinista!, but I have the other albums and the live album. Sigh, call myself a fan.

I LOVE the Clash. Love, love, love them!!!

Favorite album is London Calling, closely followed by The Clash.

Favorite songs:

Guns of Brixton
This is Radio Clash
London Calling
Should I Stay Or Should I Go?
Revolution Rock
Bankrobber
White Riot
The Magnificent Seven
Clampdown
Police and Thieves (excellent cover)

I need to stop cos I'll keep listing all damn day!

Oh yeah, and I have this big thing for Paul...







Oh man....so sexy.

Also, the Mescaleros are wonderful. Huge bummer about Joe...it certainly made me have a blue Christmas...

but there's got to be MORE clash fans here...

let's see, i started listening to the clash probably about two years ago, because i'd read about them. they kept popping up in articles and interviews with my other favourite bands at the time...i was in a used record shop waiting for these old people to move away from the local rock section so i could look for a cd from my favourite local band, and i was standing in the rock section near bands that start withthe letter C, and decided that i needed to hear the clash since i'd heard of them so many times...it's one of those stores where you can listen before you buy the cd, and i never got around to checking the local rock section cos i didn't have enough money for two cds, and i had to get the clash album--u.k version of the self-titled

my 12th grade math teacher was a huge clash fan, and he lent me a tape of big audio dynamite's first album...and my grandma got me a copy of "global a go-go" for christmas that year

i've got give em enough rope, sandinista, combat rock, and the u.s. version of the self titled album on vinyl...which kind of sucks because at school when i don't have my record player, i don't get to hear a lot of really great clash stuff

I bought my first Clash album (The Singles) after watching that VH1 Punk Rock documentary thing. I liked it a lot and read a lot about how good London Calling was, so I bought that. At first I didnt really like London Calling, I was expecting more punky stuff like their first album time period songs, but a few months later I listened to it again and realized I worshipped the whole album. Then I bought their first album (UK Version) last year. Those are the only 3 Clash cds I own.

Ivan meets GI Joe

Well I've always been a fan of The Clash, but didn't start getting into them seriously until college...

London Calling is on my top 5 list of favorite albums ever. Another bonus of having VH1 Classics (well, I only get to see it at home) is seeing Clash videos, the best of course being Rock the Casbah, one of the funniest videos ever!

Bummer. They also have one for London Calling, and it's just them performing the song at night in the rain, and VH1 Classics also show live videos too. Good stuff!
