The Clash, 'Hitsville U.K.' ('Millions,' 2004)
"We had 'Hitsville U.K.' at the end of 28 Days Later, actually, and there's a couple of times when I've been ashamed I've let the industry manipulate my taste. We got talked out of using it because they promised to release the CD as an album if we used this other song by Blue States. I always regretted that. So I put 'Hitsville U.K.' in Millions in a key section where the kids have got money and influence at school and feel like heroes. Right around then, Joe Strummer had died, and I felt very grief-stricken about it. Britain has always been so much better at music than film. What we're good at is, kids get together and make a band. British music is defiantly idiosyncratic. It's not fashionable. And it really is unafraid. That song represents that for me."
