The Clash is one of my favorite bands, but I don't like when people make such a big deal when famous musicians die. Everybody dies. Sometimes it seems like people care more about Joe Strummer or Dimebag Darrel or Jimi Hendrix than people they actually know. Sure, it's too bad he won't be making any more music, but people deify (that's a word, right?) musicians too much.

maybe because the people they know are assholes and Strummer wrote the music of their lives?

I won´t start to cry when some musician whose music I enjoy dies, though it would´ve been really great if I saw Joe Strummer and the mescaleros or maybe a reunited The Clash once in my life.

It always upset me that he died on my 13th birthday. Back when I was really into the Clash.
My style is impetuous.
My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.
I want your heart.
I want to eat your children.

Rizzo cannot tolerate any hero next to him

I already renounced my faith in Rizzo as a forum hero for saying he didn't like the Minutemen. He and I are on bad terms now.

And HAPPY BIRFDAY ILIKETHESKA!!!

I think this song is about him:

Quote by The Gaslight Anthem - I'da Called You Woody, Joe

I was crawling around in my head in the haze of a trance.
Rico said, "I'ma turn you onto a sound, cool out your head.
This is the sound from Camden town."

And then I heard it like a shot through my skull to my brain,
I felt my fingertips tingle and it started to rain,
When the walls of my bedroom were tremblin' around me,
This ramshackle voice over attack of a bluesbeat,
Tellin' me he's only looking for fun.
This was the sound of the very last gang in town.

As heard by my wild young heart, like directions on a cold dark night,
Sayin' "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doin' all right."
And I heard it in his chain gang soul.
It wasn't just the same sad song.
Saying "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doing all right."
And I'm doing all right, are you doin' all right?

And I carried these songs like a comfort wherever I'd go.
They were there when my summers was high, and there when she left me alone.
Saying "the soul is hard to find."

And I never got to tell him so I just wrote it down,
I wrapped a couple chords around it and I let it come out,
When the walls of my bedroom trembled around me,
To this ramshackle voice over attack of a bluesbeat,
And a girl, on the excitement gang.
That was the sound of the very last gang in town.

[Chorus]

That was the sound...
I hear the sound...
Do you hear the sound....
I hear the sound...
Of the very last gang in town...


Can anyone confirm/deny?
I'm the type of nigga that's built to last
If you fuck with me, I'll put my foot in your ass
See, I don't give a fuck cause I keep bailin
Yo, what the fuck are they yellin?!

Cool, I got one right

Collin, if you're so smart, what song is he quoting in the "let it out" part?
I'm the type of nigga that's built to last

No idea. It's been a while since I've listened to a Clash album straight through.

Lol, I was totally spacing out working on wrapping up college applications while listening to the US release of The Clash, and I just noticed that I'm 3 songs into the UK version now.

So what's a good Clash album to start with?

I like the Clash, but Joe Strummer sucks more sh*t than that nun on 'Church of Fudge'. Also, their fans suck sh*t too.


Fixed.
