I am taking the time to crawl through this thread from the OP right now.
I don't see how we've covered as much as we have in this thread and The Clash hasn't gotten a post.
I got to meet Joe Strummer a few years before he passed away. He acted like an old friend and reminded me of a friend I had years ago that lived in an anarcho-syndicalist house way out in the canyons of Orange County. Very cerebral and freindly, with a hint of something threatening that you couldn't quite put your finger on. Nothing creepy, just...a 'don't eff with the nice guy' kinda thing.
never loved a shovel, break your back to earn your pay, and don't forget to grovel

don't be afraid, it's not too late, to save yourself

A number of recent international and domestic events have spurred an influx of crowd sourced and student organized gonzo journalism videos, that I would love to post in a thread titled "Punk". Though I'm sure that would easily cross the line from a music discussion, to politics.
Toeing that line, though it's an HBO documentary, can't wait to see
