I don't get it

I just listened to the whole CD straight through for the first time, and while it was admittedly just one listen, I don't get why The Clash's London Calling is considered such a classic. Or why it's considered punk. Ska, sure, but punk?

I can see how they influenced Green Day, but I still don't see why this album in particular is held in such reverence.


  • I tend to agree with you. I like "Combat Rock" much better - never saw the appeal of London Calling.
