Better late than never: “Janie Jones,” from the debut LP The Clash (1977). (Also on the U.S. version, released in 1979.)
For a coupla a young punks I know on the Twitter machine. And they know who they are.
Listen, I know I say this a lot, but this time I really mean it. This song is the definition of punk rock. Not the political side of punk, just the sound. It’s as pure a punk rock song as ever there was.
And here’s a live version, recorded in France in 1977:
If you don’t dig this, you just don’t get it.
But you do dig it, don’t you. Of course you do.
So … Turn. It. Up.
