Top 11 Songs by the Clash

My favorite Clash song, Train In Vain, is one that self-proclaimed true Clash fans dismiss as a tossed off pop hit. I say too bad, it made me (a 10 year old when it was released) interested in the Clash and it remains my favorite. It made me bounce around the room then, and it makes me bounce around the room now. I am not a punk rock prophet. Some of it, I can take or leave. However, the Clash were more than punk rock. They redefined punk. They made music that was progressive. The Clash showed people that punk was not about style (mohawks, safety pins), it was about substance (musical experimentation and meaningful lyrics).
