1. Rock the Casbah
me and my dad sing this album together in the car rock n roll
The Clash roll up the sleeves and launch their muscular, militant funk in order to please the revolted crowd with a universal dance, instead of a bloodshed.
Uneven, bipolar collection from a band not knowing if they should continue pushing boundaries or return to their roots, and starting to break apart as a result. Rock the Casbah and Should I Stay, their most obvious attempts at Top 40 airplay, are what they are now most remembered for -- unfortunately. But overlooked are a few experimental gems, including Straight to Hell, Ghetto Defendant, Sean Flynn. Worth a listen.
