In addition to punk, their music featured elements of reggae, ska, dub, funk, rap, and rockabilly. The Clash were one of the very notable of the emerging groups in britain punk rock scene, their second record, “Give ‘Em Enough Rope” (1978) reaching number 2 on the united kingdom charts. The Clash’s politicised lyrics, musical experiment, and rebellious approach had a far reaching influence on rock, alternative rock specifically.

His musical expertise contained his membership of The 101ers, Latino Rockabilly War, The Mescaleros and The Pogues, as well as his own solo music career. Strummer’s work as a musician enabled him to explore other interests, which included performing, creating film scores for television and films, songwriting, radio broadcasting, as well as a place as a radio host. Strummer is among the iconic figures of the British punk movement. Strummer and The Clash were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in January 2003.

1I spoke to Paul Simon about this and he said, 'Hey man, before Graceland I was dead in the water. Nobody was checking my stuff.' So he's a realist. He had some barren years after stuff like One-Trick Pony, and out of the hat he pulled Graceland. So life is interesting: anything can happen. But you've got to be tough enough to take a spell in the wilderness, instead of hoping to be in the spotlight the whole fucking time. People get sick of you.
2To me our music is like Jamaican stuff - if they can't hear it, they're not supposed to hear it. It's not for them if they can't understand it.
3I found that I was just hopeless at school. It was just a total bore. First I passed in art and English, and then just art. Then I passed out.
1He was a vegetarian.
2Son of John Graham Mellor MBE (awarded in 1952 for his services to military).
3He was mostly Scottish, part Armenian.
4Former manager of "The Pogues".
5When he changed his name to Joe Strummer when young, he would no longer answer to his previous nickname, "Woody" Mellor, so everyone knew him as "Joe."
6Mick Jones and Paul Simonon first saw Strummer playing at a show and Strummer, having mistook these scruffy strangers interest, was convinced they were about to jump him. They were actually looking for a musical collaborator and the three went onto to form The Clash.
7The Clash were voted the 30th Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artists by Rolling Stone.
8Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of the Clash) on 10 March 2003.
9At the time of his death, he was working on a third album with the Mescaleros and was collaborated with Bono of U2 and Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics on a song in honor of former South African Pres. Nelson Mandela. Song Titled '46664', Mandela's number in prison, the song was performed with Bono singing Joe's last lyrics, on Saturday November 29th 2003 at Green Point Stadium, Cape Town, South Africa.
10Formed Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros
11He has been regarded as one of the most talented songwriters of his generation.
12Strummer is the son of a British diplomat.
13Former lead singer/guitarist of The Clash.
14Along with his bandmates, Joe Strummer was in and out of jail for having committed minor "bad boy" acts such as vandalism throughout 1977. But soon after, Strummer and The Clash became social activists and headed a Rock Against Racism concert. The 1978 song "White Man" addresses the issue.
