Great song
Great music!!
It's funny you thought you knew how to sing 5 hat song
In the movie, Rude Boy, Joe sings, ''I killed my baby and I feel so bad... she's the best little woman that I ever had...''

I fought the law.....and the law won
The only band that matters!
The Dead Kennedy's version kicks a** too@
The other day I was watching 'The Land Before Time' with my neice, thought I recognized one of the songs; apparently I did. xD
Using the Clash in a kids movie. Never been prouder. lmao
Hard rock roots?
Yeah the law did win, they gave me 1 1/2 years to 3 years I just finished my sentence. Still though f**k the law
Love dis song
She is becoming the most best friend I ever had. I don't think anyone will ever replace my bro & sis. It would be interesting to see if she does though. ;)
This song just ROCKS!!!!
Yeah..she will be the best girl/woman I ever had! Without a doubt!
I don't fight anymore..I'm pretty good at talking myself out of the situation. If I'm walking away from you, don't pursue me! I will unleash the tiger!
My favorite Clash song ever one of the greatest remakes ever
Favorite band
If I go to jail some day, this song will be played.
I like Green Days cover better, but this is nice too.
So Clash was writing music for a movie that was in production and one of the members decided to fight the law and the law won, so all the other members kept thinking 'Should I stay or should I go? but they told the director of the movie soon after that London was calling.
The law hasn't won yet.
An awesome song!
Good British punk.
Yeah...ok Pandora...1 or 2 more...you'r e like a bad bartender, that doesn't know when to cut people off ! Lol
When I fought the law I got my a** kicked & was arrested...l m a o No bullshoot!!! I was a stupid kid then... =)
dope
i fought my mom and my... damn

I saw the clash in 1980 or 81 in San Francisco in a Small club off-Broadway

Don't read this because it acaully works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of Ur life, tomarow will be the best day of Ur life. However, if u don't post this u will die in 2 days. Now you've started, so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 mins. When your done, press F6, and Ur lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it acaully works.
Bobby Fuller's is best. This one's not bad, though.
<3
The Airborne Toxic Event made an great cover of this song. Sounded like this but with Mikel Jollet's amazing vocals.
Best. Punk cover. Ever
i. love. this. song. and the dk's version too
...beat yer a**'...hahah a . . . . . l i k e this track...
Martin
La Roque

Omfg I love this song sooooooo much!!! ^.^
Op Ivy's ''Officer,'' then this. I see a pattern.
I love this song! I love the clash! I also love green days cover of it
Awesome song!!! It's my favorite by them!
YEAH...class i c punk...BUT F**K THE SIMILAR SONGS...OK GO? AC/DC? OZZY OSBOURNE? ROLLING STONES? WEEZER? Are any of these 5 bands similar to each other? The Clash? C'mon Pandora!!
Saw Joe Strummer do this with the Pogues at a little club behind Fenway Park in Boston...... f o r g o t the name of the club. This was the Pogues with Shane McGowan..... . . . u n b e l i e v a b l e show!

I don't love everything the Clash did, but when they were on, GODDAMN they were really on! This song is a case in point. Pretty much everything on the first couple albums, in fact.
Punk influencer.. . . Right Jared?
I FOUGHT MY MOM AND MY MOM WON!
(exact same lyrics!)
A great cover by THE ONLY BAND THAT MATTERS! I also think that punk influences is a daft description considering they are a punk progenitor.
the best. hands down, what a sexy song
how can you not like the clash?
The Clash is a synonym for greatness
