Music Groups - Clash, The

One of the great iconic bands of all time, The Clash was arguably the most notable, and certainly the most financially successful, of the groups which comprised the first generation of British punk rock. Formed in 1976 by vocalist Joe Strummer and guitarist Mick Jones, The Clash recorded five hugely influential albums (and a sixth that should perhaps have never been made) and gained a fiercely loyal following on both sides of the Atlantic before burning out in the mid-'80s.

1 I was a huge Clash fanatic in the early 80s and got into them just around the time they boned, so let me refresh everyone's memory here. After "Combat Rock" was released, which was an improvement over the pretentious "Sandinista", drummer Topper Headon was dismissed from the band due to a heroin problem. That was the minor boning point. He was replaced with his predecessor Terry Chimes, who played on most songs from their eponymous first album, so there was some continuity. Then it happened. After their 1982-83 tour opening for The Who and their appearance at that year's "Us Festival", lead guitarist and sometime lead vocalist Mick Jones (Should I Stay or Should I Go; Train In Vain) was also dismissed from the band, leaving only Joe Strummer and Paul Simonon (Chimes had also quit again after the tour but before the Us Festival). They proceeded to replace these two founding members with three replacements and released a vapid album called "Cut The Crap" in 1985 with "The Clash" having become little more than a label. Then they called it quits. Never boned? Kicking out Mick Jones and doing an album without him were major league bones. They'll never reunite now as Joe Strummer died in 2002, but at least they made amends on a personal level. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 20, 2012, 5:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Another band similar to the Beatles in that they weren't together for a long time, but in short amount they were together they put out some groundbreaking music. London Calling is one of the best overall albums of all time and the music, regardless of your political persuasion, just rocks. Towards the end, Jones and Strummer were no longer on the same page on what direction they wanted to take the band and you could see the cracks starting to show on Combat Rock, a good album, but one with glaring weaknesses. I think they broke up before they could bone, but for the few years they were together, they really were music revolutionaries. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 3, 2011, 6:08 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Shouldn't this be listed under the letter C? Did I enter it incorrectly? Don't the administrators here make sure that submissions beginning with the word "The" are located according to the first letter of the second word, or is that the job of the person who submits the subject? Very confusing, and I hope this mistake is fixed. As for the band, they never really boned, though it is true that the last album ought not to have seen the light of day. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 1:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
