So AarnKrry admitted in the ask the person below you thread that he thinks The Clash suck. In this thread, we must go about changing his mind. I will start:

The part in Armagideon Time where Kosmo Vinyl tells the band to wrap the song up (due to his fixation with short, radio friendly singles or something) and Joe yells back "OKAY, OKAY, DON'T PUSH US WHEN WE'RE... HOT!!!" is just unreal. A band that really gets and believes in the music they're making, even though it was a cover song! The fact that they left it in the mix is just incredible.

Who's next?

Wrong, just wrong. So start posting the reasons to change his mind!

Reasons to like The Clash...

Pressure Drop (its a Toots and the Maytals cover and honestly I prefer it to the original)
The Card Cheat
Tommy Gun
Safe European Home
I'm So Bored With The USA
White Man in Hammersmith Palace
Hateful
Spanish Bombs
Guns of Brixton

Listen to those songs and then tell me you don't like the Clash.
Also, its amazing how many bands wouldn't be here without the Clash. Operation Ivy, Against Me!, a whole slew of reggae-punk bands...
I mean, The Clash are the band that brought like, a social conscience to punk rock.
I mean...its the fucking Clash.

Yeah, great idea. But reasons why you like those songs would also be welcome if you feel like it.

This is a long list cos I really, really, really love The Clash:
Janie Jones
I'm So Bored With The USA
London's Burning
Career Opportunities
Police & Thieves
Complete Control (I defy you not to sing along with the end refrain of TOTAL C-O-N CONTROL!)
City Of The Dead
Safe European Home
Tommy Gun
(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais
The Prisoner (I love the story of Joe and Topper getting arrested after a gig in Scotland. When they were taken to the cells, they found that they were all full of kids from the show and they spent all night singing the chorus from this song.)
I Fought The Law
Gates Of The West
London Calling
Brand New Cadillac
Jimmy Jazz (Uh, he was here... but er... he WENT OUT!)
Rudie Can't Fail
Spanish Bombs
The Right Profile
Clampdown
The Guns Of Brixton
Wrong 'Em Boyo
Death Or Glory
Revolution Rock
Armagideon Time
Bankrobber (CBS refused to release this at first becuase they said it sounded like Bowie played backwards. Luckily, they saw the light.)
The Leader
Somebody Got Murdered
Police On My Back
The Call Up
Know Your Rights
Should I Stay Or Should I Go?
Rock The Casbah
Straight To Hell
Pressure Drop
This Is England

Pick a spread of these songs, say ten or twelve and if you still don't like the Clash then... well... I dunno... Don't give up on them, they will make sense.

BUT THEY'RE SO BLAND!

I 5*'d every thing on London Calling, because I listened to it and it was good to listen to but I didn't really care about hearing it again. Funnily enough, it's the only album I've bought so far this year, besides Cancer Bats and AM!

I like them, it was hyperbole. I just don't see why it's so universally perfect to everybody.

I'm listening now. I remember liking Rudie, Koka Kola and Guns of Brixton.

But after that they went reggae.

No energy?

This video refutes that.


As does this one.

Ah, that's live. I'm talking about their albums.

I'll tell you what, I'll buy all of their albums. And I'll listen to them for 2 weeks. If I don't like them by then, you can all disown me, et cetera.

Deal?

That seems fair. Maybe get the Essential Clash since that covers most of their albums, or the Singles CD. They're a good introduction.

I can understand why people don't like The Clash.

I went into my first listen of London Calling with so many misconceptions of what it would sound like. Up to that point I had only heard "Should I Stay or Should I go?" and I expected all of their songs to sound like that. I was kind of put off by all of the slow jazzy reggae and never really gave the album a real chance.

A couple years later I kind of forced myself to listen to/like The Clash and I was successful. They're not my favorite band by any stretch of the imagination but they certainly don't suck. Give London Calling a few more plays.

I just can't understand it. I know that's wrong of me, but it just doesn't compute. They were just the perfect fucking band for a while. Their music is a cornerstone of my taste in music, they're so vital to me.

No, I'm not trying to be a dick either, but please don't write them off forever. In time I'm sure you'll get it. One day you'll look in the mirror and you'll be like "Fuck me! I'm a Clash fan! When did that happen?!" Consider this thread to be an Intervention. You are doing something wrong with your life and we're just saying "Hey, there's another way for you." But you can't be pushed into this, you have to want to do it.
