Celebrating The Clash

A pair of work colleagues and I were enjoying beers the other night when discussion briefly turned to The Clash and how 2010 is the 30th anniversary of London Calling.

We then talked about favorite songs and realized that we all had our distinct, preferred Clash songs. I thought the selections were varied but excellent and wanted to list them here. Note that we did not intentionally all pick songs from London Calling. It just turned out that way, although it shows the depth of the album.

The songs:

Lost in the Supermarket

Jimmy Jazz

Rudie Can't Fail


  1. One of the best double albums of all time. Love "Guns of Brixton" and "Train in Vain", but "Clampdown" is my favourite track on London Calling.

  2. Good picks, Travis.
