Today In Music, March 18

On this day in music, 1977, The Clash released their debut single, "White Riot". While it peaked at the #38 position on the UK singles chart, it set in motion a juggernaut that would forever shape rock music. Granted, certain respect must be paid to the Sex Pistols, but they were the clown princes of punk to The Clash's driven manifesto of disciplined, militant subversion.

To this day, some 34 years later, there has yet to come a band that can touch them.

Odd that four complete opposites could unite under the same banner, delivering a sound so unique unto itself, arriving fully formed and set to detonate like an atom bomb.
