The Clash 'Combat Rock' LP
The final album by the Clash's original Strummer / Jones incarnation originally released in 1982. It includes two massive hits: Should I Stay or Should I Go? has the biggest, stupidest, most perfect riff this side of Louie Louie, and Rock the Casbah pulls the band's politics, fine-honed sarcasm, and saw-toothed guitar sound into the service of a dance-floor beat. Strummers lyrics have also deepened on this record - Allen Ginsberg turns up on Ghetto Defendant and its clear on some of the other tracks (Car Jamming, Straight To Hell) that he was an influence on Strummers songwriting.
