The Clash were the band who made Punk real, they were the last great British Rock'n'Roll band, they were the coolest, the most political, the most eclectic and most thrilling of the Punk bands. Blasting away from the parochial concerns of the London Punk scene of the late 1970s, the Clash explored and expanded musical boundaries like no act before, or since. For seven years they set the agenda for future generations of Rock bands.
In 1981 the Clash played in front of a screaming, adoring full house at Shea Stadium as their fifth album (Combat Rock) stood in the Top 5 of the American charts. A little over a year later they were no more. Seven years living, touring and recording together without a break took it's toll on the individuals involved and the band dissolved.
