  The Clash - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
From their earliest days as a band, The Clash stood apart from their peers with their musicianship, as well as their lyrics; the passionate, left wing political idealism in the lyrics of frontmen Joe Strummer and Mick Jones contrasted with the anarchic nihilism of the Sex Pistols and the basic simplicity of The Ramones.
Headon's contribution to The Clash was by no means limited to his drumming for the band; he composed and performed the music for "Ivan Meets G.I. Joe" and "Rock The Casbah" almost entirely by himself, the latter becoming the band's biggest hit in the U.S. when it reached #8 on the Billboard charts in 1982.
The Clash are generally credited with pioneering the advocacy of radical politics in punk rock, and were known as the "Thinking Man's Yobs" by many for their politically astute take on the world.

 TrouserPress.com :: Clash
That the Clash survived as long as they did — and, in fact, proved commercially viable in both the UK and US — is a clear testament to their rugged integrity and stubborn refusal to buckle despite enormous adversity, much of it self-induced.
The Clash received no small amount of criticism over the years: damned for their integrity (or lack thereof); assailed for absorbing fl musical styles; attacked for injecting politics into their songs; blamed for changing; blamed for not changing; ridiculed for having ideals; accused of abandoning them.
Through it all, the Clash consistently proved equal to the task of confounding everyone that ever followed or dealt with them, offering contradictory and inconsistent statements in classic Bob Dylan obfuscatory oratory and generally failing to act in their own self-interest.

 Clash of the titans   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The interpretation of the outbreak of violence, demonstrations and mayhem in the Muslim world against the now famous 12 cartoons in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, inevitably has to be that it is the fulfillment of Samuel Huntington's prediction of the coming clash of civilizations.
There is absolutely no reason why the reaction should be so violent to images published a faraway country in a newspaper most of the rioters have never seen -- unless there is a political advantage to be had in whipping up wrath against the West.
This is despite the fact that Denmark has stood steadfastly with the United States and is one of the few allies in Iraq that has been there form the beginning, never once threatening to pull back its troops.

 The Clash: London Calling: 25th Anniversary Legacy Edition: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The 25th anniversary reissue of The Clash's London Calling is satisfyingly thick and protected by a thin plastic sleeve.
Even if The Clash were more blatantly inspired by the musical tenets of dub and reggae, "London Calling" unapologetically cops the fury of punk's blind-and-obliterate full-body windmilling, bypassing the cerebral cortex to sink deep into our muscles.
As an instruction manual, the 25th anniversary edition of London Calling offers up bits of helpful, ordinary wisdom (he who fucks nuns will later join the church, no one gets their shit for free-- and "Balls to you, big daddy!" is an infallible exit line), but the album's biggest lesson is still spiritual.

 The Clash: The Essential Clash: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
When The Clash played their famed series of concerts at New York City's oversold Bond's Casino in 1981, midtown was mobbed with the same mouthbreathing dopes that piled in pickups to see the Pistols down south in '78.
What you'll get out of that is purely academic, a familiarity to set you apart from the "poseurs who only know their popular stuff." All that The Clash had to say about dub reggae and revolution was expertly woven together at a later date as "Straight to Hell".
A mostly chronological history, The Essential Clash draws to a close with the three excellent songs from their wandering finale Combat Rock, the album that conquered America.

 The Clash: The Essential Clash - PopMatters Music Review
The Clash is not one of those bands whose every record you should own, especially in the case of its limp final effort, Cut the Crap, recorded after Mick Jones and Topper Headon -- that's half the band, folks -- were unceremoniously sacked.
Had a Volume 2 of that collection ever been issued, perhaps that wouldn't be the case, but as it stands, The Story of does a nice job of covering the group's punk and reggae endeavors, but excludes a few key tracks and doesn't delve far enough into the band's experimental side.
The Clash was an extremely powerful band, but in this muddied new mix there is no top and no bottom, which does a great disservice in particular to Topper Headon's muscular drumming.

The us-against-them, DIY aesthetic that characterized late '70s punk was still there, but there was a huge sense of musical adventurousness present as well, and the album proved immensely satisfying for punk, pop, and rock fans alike, while exposing listeners to sounds they would never even have considered trying.
In a genre regarded by many as being confrontational more than anything else, The Clash were the one band who seemed to be always open to new ideas.

She asks these reps from health-care companies, banks, law firms, manufacturers, and city governments to plaster the stickers to their name tags to identify every political, social, and pop-culture icon that's influenced who they are today.

 Engin I. Erdem: The Clash of Civilizations: Revisited after September 11
The clash of civilizations is inevitable though not necessarily to be violent.
Though Huntington argues here that 'the makings exist for a clash of civilizations between Muslim and non-Muslims and he also argues that reactions to September 11 and the American response were strictly along civilizational lines'(69) he makes fundamental revisions in his earlier standing, which take place in his 'Clash of Civilizations?' article and book.
Samuel P. Huntington's clash of civilizations paradigm unquestionably has menacing implications for Islam-the West relations.(71) As mentioned earlier, Huntington's understanding of Islam basically bases upon orientalist scholarship of Islam, in which Islam-'the other' is being depicted as a threat and even an enemy to the West.
