why do you people wear that fucking t shirt that Joe Strummer used, that one of “Brigade Rosse” and the “Rote Armee Fraktion”. I think it’s an inopportune and stupid thing, also about Joe, but he weared it at least in a context in which those movements were still in a valid situation. (even if he was a bit amiss with it, really…)
Going around in 2014 with that t-shirt it’s kind ridiculous… And think about having the logos of terroristic organizations of extreme left-wing politics, it seems wearing ignorance, like if I walk down the street waving nazist symbols.
I am sorry, but this is what I think about ….
I do agree, I think it’s just a bit inappropriate to wear that stuff these days. I mean, you might as well come up with a new thing to print on your shirt, perhaps something that you are familiar with. Just because Joe wore it doesn’t mean it’s automatically cool, especially after almost 40 years.
Tommy Ramone, the last original member from influential band, has died aged 62.
The band, founded in New York in 1974, had a major influence on punk rock. Tommy Ramone was the last surviving member of its original lineup. He had reportedly been undergoing treatment for cancer.
my heart is breaking
Punk really is dead, as of today. Rest in peace Tommy! Rock the heavens!
I guess The band is finally back together.. Just not on earth.
Honestly I thought I was about to have a heart attack when I heard Tommy Ramone is dead. The Ramones used to be such a big fucking deal to me when I was 12 and 13 until The Clash sort of took their place.
So thanks, Tommy. See you around buddy.

The Clash at the Asbury Park Amusement Casino, 1982
favorite songs of all time. ever. (35/?)
clampdown by the clash.
Let fury have the hour, anger can be power
Do you know that you can use it?
The song’s lyrics, written by Joe Strummer, refers to the failures of capitalist society. The wearing of the “blue and brown” refers to the color of the uniforms that are mostly worn by workers. This idea goes along with lyrics that refer to “young believers” who are brought and bought into the capital system by those “working for the clampdown” who will “teach with twisted speech.”
