The pounding arena rock of "Should I Stay or Should I Go" makes the Clash sound like an arena rock band, and much of the album boasts a muscular, heavy sound courtesy of producer Glyn Johns. But things aren't quite that simple.

Combat Rock found The Clash at the top of their game, arriving on the heels of a series of albums that were getting progressively better, yet still, heavily relied on a single to carry them through. If a bit unorthodox, Combat Rock was without a doubt the most wholly cohesive album to date, combining a series of genres that should not have flowed together, yet in the hands of The Clash, managed to do so flawlessly, even effortlessly
Combat Rock is the fifth studio album by The Clash, released in 1982. It was the last album to feature the classic line-up before Mick Jones was sacked and Topper Headon was kicked out for his heroin addiction. The cover photo was shot by Pennie Smith on a deserted railway line outside Bangkok while the band was on their "Far East" tour in 1982.
But the message of Combat Rock - the Clash’s fifth album and a snarling, enraged, yet still musically ambitious collection of twelve tight tracks on a single disc - is pop hits and press accolades be damned. This record is a declaration of real-life emergency, a provocative, demanding document of classic punk anger, reflective questioning and nerve-wracking frustration.

Joe unleashes the album straight your way with clearly the very best track an album like this could have started out with.

Now, everything in this track isn’t perfect
