The Clash Tear Up 'Garageland' in 1977

January 5, 2016

"This is rock & roll," Clash guitarist Joe Strummer informed a curious Munich crowd. By the end of the show that night – October 4th, 1977 – he had led the band through most of their unstoppable debut album (released earlier that...


Flashback: The Clash Storm Tokyo in 1982

May 26, 2015

In hindsight, The Clash probably shouldn't have agreed to tour Asia and Australia in early 1982. Beyond the fact that it came midway through the tense Combat Rock sessions, promoters put together an insane schedule of 25 shows in a little over...


Ian Rubbish Interviews the Clash

October 16, 2013

It's said you should never meet your heroes, but Ian Rubbish has never abided by conventional wisdom. Fred Armisen's veteran punk character, introduced earlier this year on Saturday Night Live, sits down with Mick Jones and Paul Simonon in The Clash:...


The Clash Take New York in 1981

March 14, 2013

The Clash, 'White Man in Hammersmith' Live

August 19, 2013

The Clash's new 13-disc box set Sound System includes remastered versions of the group's five studio albums as well as tons of remixes, demos, outtakes and alternate versions of classic songs. The coolest part, however, may be the videos. The group has...


Flashback: The Clash Say Goodbye

November 1, 2012

The Clash came to a rather sad ending in May 1983. The group had every reason to be on the top of the world by this point: their previous LP, Combat Rock, was an enormous hit and their singles "Rock the Casbah" and "Should I Stay or Should I Go" were...
