BRING IT
I am so looking forward to the revolution, if only for this.
Indeed. I'll have the sweet release of death, and you'll have thousands of drab bands.
Your blood will finally make Starship sound good.

(Man, shit's gotten dark.)
Hey you two...get a room! :twitch:
Like that room in Videodrome?
Inder:
Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)

I think Hitsville was a regret thing with the Clash and an acknowledgement they may have been wrong. It really is a great lyric, like ABBA with a conscience.
OK here's a thought imagine if Blondie had released Hitsville U.K.(USA) as a single. Sure fire number 1. The Clash = not a pop group.

I'm more worried that ABBA didn't have a conscience. I thought they seemed really nice people.

The Mikey Dread one is fantastic but nothing else stands out with me from that project. I've actually never heard a tribute album that I even moderately liked and that goes for any artist, not just the Clash. That said, I wasn't in any way disgusted with Chuck Prophet's take on LC.

I really like the Afghan Whigs version of "Lost in the Supermarket" on the Burning London CD. I like how it uses the drums from Train in Vain.

Its not terrible, the backing track and vocals are pretty good but its the lead vocal lets it down for me, just a bit flat and uninspiring. Ultimately it just reinforces what a powerful and underappreciated lead vocalist Mick was in his own right which is the way with a lot of tribute tracks for me.

I saw these guys twice when they were opening for the Living End and was pleasantly surprised that this is part of their set. A nice cover, complete with lap-steel:

I kinda like the Crooked Beat cover
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Very nice.

Speaking of lap steel, always loved the lap steel on this:
