I was a around 14 when I started to listening to The Clash and liked most of their popular songs. (i.e. Should I Stay) but didn’t dig in deep as I should have back then.
I was an angry at the universe type of dude back then and I really needed something more aggressive to match my inner teenage angst so I didn’t explore and appreciate their music until much later.
Punk, pop, rock, reggae, country, disco influences the Clash had it all, and made it look fun and insanely cool. They had best of all worlds without putting them in a single class. These guys are pioneers on all fronts with influences on today’s music. These guys are fucking classic cool with music and energy to back their shit up.
One of my all time favorite songs from The Clash | London Calling
