Can't really explain my love for this song.
Love it . The. Clash you heard
The clash is definitely in my top three favorite bands. Could very well be my favorite.
Gbeal659 - Well put! You are spot on with that & so few realize it but the music is almost too good....whic h is why I think most cats miss what The Clash are really saying.
This is the real sh*%!!!! This is what I call "punk rock & roll" at it's finest, part of its peak in fact.
A great sick band
arkhammer7
Lets rock this cats balls! The Rat!!

I lived in London when this came out. Drank pints at the Odeon listening to Flock of Seagulls and now I'm old. Larry
How can the shareef not like this?
I swear i can hear a phone going off in the song
When did this song come out?,1982?
I was pre-teenage and realized we were about see a world of s**t

Wish I lived when music like this was around
ROCK THE CASBAH
If this song were released today, the Islamo-Terro r crowd would have an absolute caniption fit. "By order of the Profit, they ban that boogie sound" You need to look at these lyrics. The Clash were actually highly intelligent and opinionated. The song is about Iran jailing people for listening to the "wrong" music.
Popular during the Gulf War....
Copy this and you will have a good day tomorrow, if not, expect to see a dead girl in your room in 53 mins. Either way, some one will say, I love you or I'm sorry.
It's real! Promise

stayoutofmym a i l b o x
wow, theres a good poem in there somewhere... o r at least a bad hallmark graduation card ;)
stayoutofmym a i l b o x
yes, but at least the 90's and 00's are over, and music is getting better. some of us look back and see our youth and wish for it back, others look back and see what they never had. youth today should look forward to what you can make.
Need more music like this this today

one of the most bizarre things i ever did while in the AF was during my second tour in Riyadh saudi arabia in 83. i was playing rock the casbah on my boombox on the ramp where we had our AWACs and one of the other guards also had the tape, we syniced up and started playing it, and the other guy started playing air guitar on his m16, i clapped along, and some of the maintenance crews started dancing to it. good memory. :)
What an odd little song.

I think this is my favorite Clash song. Combat Rock, man the memories. God bless these dudes for the inspiration. ��
Yep...sure sounds like a ringtone.Thi s song is back before ringtones/ce l l p h o n e s smaller than a mules leg/etc...
Does anyone else the hear the little ringtone in the background while this song is playing or am I mad?

I absolutely love this song. And the band. One of my most played in my music collection!! ! !
This song was so cool back then..and still is!

Been loving this song since the good ole MTV days.
In the context of the song a casbah refers to a neighborhood in north africa.
