About The Clash

The Sex Pistols may have been the first British punk rock band, but the Clash were the definitive British punk rockers. The Clash were fiery and idealistic, charged with righteousness and a leftist political ideology. From the outset, the band was musically adventurous, expanding its hard rock & roll with reggae, dub, and rockabilly. Furthermore, they were blessed with two exceptional songwriters in Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, each with a distinctive voice and style. They won a passionately devoted following on both sides of the Atlantic. Though the Clash never became the superstars they always threatened to become, they restored passion and protest to rock & roll. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
