Your Friday Clash Song: This Here Music Cause A Sensation …

Well, sure. “Revolution Rock,” from London Calling (1979) … because, you know, the competent, centrist Democrat who just got reelected is, according to conservatives everywhere, an America-hating Marxist Kenyan socialist anti-colonial revolutionary, who’s, of course, none of those things. But it’s an excuse to play a great song from a great LP:
Everybody smash up your seats and rock to this

Brand new beat

This here music mash up the nation

This here music cause a sensation

Tell your ma, tell your pa everything’s gonna be all right

Can’t you feel it? Don’t ignore it

Gonna be all-right …
Because I’m all about the revolution, here’s the original by Danny Ray and the Revolutionaries:

And while we’re at it, here’s a bonus track for our Republican friends who act like they hate America whenever elections don’t go their way:

“I’m So Bored With The U.S.A.,” originally on The Clash (1977) (along with “Train In Vain,” the last track on London Calling).
Up against the wall, motherf– oh, never mind.
