People who didn't put "http://" into their homepage addresses in their profile should do so, as the links don't work without it.

I could of course tell you to search for it, but I'll be nice: http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Palladium/1028/lyr_combat_rock.html. Lack of education :P

Now come on... That Clash? They've got two good songs (Should I stay or should I go is not one of them)... How should I've known? :P

No, Should I stay or should I go sucks. As does this album on the whol and the song with the 'public service announcement'. But all their previous albums were great and they were one of the most influential bands ever, so you should know :P

At that time, I was listening to Clannad and Dead Can Dance, not The Clash :P.

Hardly true. Dead Can Dance is from the early 80s, The Clash's masterpieces are from the late 70s. Combat Rock is from that time, yes, but I never claimed you should have known it in the time it was first released :P

At the time it was released I was still playing with dolls.


Did I just say that? :o

Hehe, I love those classic punk lyrics. Here's another one with (almost) the same title:

A Public Dis-Service Announcement From Shell

Considering they began to turn into a reggae band at that time, I don't agree. :worried:

Hmm... they have about 5-10 Reggae titles on the whole, half of them are from the 70s. Claiming they 'turned into a Reggae band' is a bit off...

Well, you might know their songs better than me, but the last time I listened to The Clash on some party, I was rather surprised how many of their songs actually are in reggae style (of course not Bob Marley-like reaggae, but concerning the rythm). In contrast to that, I don't remember such a song off their mid-seventies albums.
If you had to describe their development as a style of music, what would you choose? They started with punk, but how'd you call their style from late Seventies on?

Reggae title from their first studio album (The Clash): Police and Thieves (great song btw :D).

It's nearly impossible to categorize The Clash's later developement (starting with London Calling). It is just that they didn't follow any of the 'established' styles, but mixed them in ways which had never been done before. That is why I called them 'one of the most influential bands' - some people even say they redefined Rock music completely, but I wouldn't go as far as that.
So to get back to the question: I don't know a word for the music they made mainly from 1979 on because it spans several dozens of different styles!

Okay, do you think we can agree on "rock", being the most general definition of hand-made music there is? ;)

There is one lame Gospel song by them which doesn't quite fit 'Rock', but.... yes ;)
