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.

One of the best bands ever. Joe Strummer is a hero and The Clash never put out a bad album in my eyes, at least not counting Cut The Crap. Their first three are all near perfection at least, and Sandinista! and Combat Rock are great in their own right. The Clash deserve every bit of praise they've ever received.
