La période rock progressif s'achevait mais nous ne le savions pas encore même si les envolées de Genesis et Yes devenaient plus pataudes.. Le choc de la déferlante punk fut grand et en dehors des éphémères Sex Pistol , c'est vraiment The Clash qui s'imposa même avec une technique disons rustique.. London calling comme leur meilleure oeuvre sans hésiter.

The band were great, all be it the singers can't sing but that's down to their style. What they had before they finished was 3 good albums for that time, but since they finished 7 of their 14 albums on here have been released which for me makes them some what overrated as well as they get too much credit, when they were just a cool band.

A brilliant punk band. Often experimented with Reggae leanings, too.

"The only band that matters". They are the example of how simple music can grow by fusing it with other genres. All of their albums are great (because "Cut the Crap" doesn't exist) or have mostly quality songs. Many people underrate them, but they are a top 20 artist worth.

These guys are my favorite classic band and probably my favorite band of all time. They incorporate so many styles in their music.

Amazing band. Intelligent, diverse and experimental, with great songwriting, lots of emotion, and a willingness to take risks. The Clash might be my all-time favorite punk band.

A fine band - music was great but just as important was the attitude/politics.

The combination of Reggea and Punk is genius.
