The Clash were to Sex Pistols what the Dead Kennedy's were to the Ramones. What starts out a comic book parody of music (Ramones), along with legitimate pissed off working class attitude (thank you Reaganomics and Thatcher for the Pistols, DK's, GOF & Minor Threat) the mid-seventies was the birth of Punk. Some bands could play, some write but most were one-off's that never grew out of their original three chord musical abilities.
The Clash were different. The first album (two if you count the American version of 'the Clash') was pure punk in attitude, minimalism, chutzpah. Over-produced 'Give Em Enough Rope' was basically part two. Then...up against the wall financially...in a last gasp to make a living doing this music thing they love, the Clash come up with 'London Calling' and basically change the way the world looked at punk. Their love of Jamaican music and the ska movement in England set them free to make one of the greatest musical statements of the 20th century. They could have stopped there (and many wish they would have) and assured themselves of pure genius immortality but continued on for five more platters before finally disbanding.
Make no doubt it. At the turn of the 80's the Clash were truly the only band that mattered. Long live Joe Strummer!

They have some good songs, but I don't really see the big deal.

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.

"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.

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.
