We've written at length about our love for seminal punk band The Clash, but to reiterate: if they weren't the greatest rock and roll band in history, they're in the top five. Burning relatively briefly, but utterly gloriously, they show up other British punk bands of the period, like The Sex Pistols, as the charlatans they were. Frontman Joe Strummer was one of the greats too, going on to a terrific solo career, as well as consistently interesting film work with the likes of Jim Jarmusch, Alex Cox and Aki Kaurismaki.
