Song of the Day: The Clash – “London Calling”



Captain Quirk recalls: The Clash released the album London Calling on this day in 1979, which would go on to be regarded by many as one of the greatest albums of all time. And as good as the album is, the title track remains by far the most powerful after all these years. It’s still very much fresh today, both thematically and how it sounds. It’s one of those songs that whenever you hear someone mention it, you feel the need to immediately go listen to it. I’ve never gotten sick of this song and I don’t think I ever will, and I don’t think it will ever stop being vital as it’ll just keep finding new meaning among new generations.
