Calm the f*ck down, it's only the Clash.

"Only", you say? "Only"? Wait til Alex reads that.


Alex is el_burton? I've only recently returned to GTU after a 3 year hiatus, not on first name terms with anyone anymore.

Where the f*ck is myfinalheaven these days??

For fuck's sake. Why is it so hard to grasp? I never liked them. Why should I "have" to like them because you lot do?

Yes, I admit they were very important in music history, but that's entirely different matter. You said so yourself, Bruce.

So basically, it all boils down to you slating me because I'm not a Clash fan. That kinda says it all really.


Nobody has said you have to like them. People are just not to happy about your ignorant dismissal of them. And don't give me any of that in my opinion bollocks.

I mean if I said "In my opinion water is solid" I would be wrong. Dismissing the clash as just another sex pistols is just as wild a statement.

This has nothing to do with whether or not you like them. It has everything to do with you talking out your ass. As usual.

Total bollocks.

For a start, I didn't just "dismiss" them. In fact I acknowledged their importance (on 2 seperate occasions). I said I don't like them. I thought you of all people could see that.

Oh, and your pathetic "water is solid" logic doesn't apply here. Some things are fact. Water is a liquid. Fact. There are 14 windows in my house. Fact. There are 5 dumb people in this thread. Opinion. The Clash were a fantastic band. Opinion.


Neal you are hilarious. Don't make me start quoting your posts. You alreadt look stupid enough.

Neal: don't tell me this sounds like "another sex pistols" The Clash - London Calling


Please dont! It'd make you look silly.

Nah, it doesn't, but I'm talking about the band in general.


Um "the band in general" and their music it's the same thing. There is no difference. Band = Music

No. A heavy metal band can do a nice soft ballad, can't they? Loads of them do.

There is still no difference between the band (The Clash) and it's music. You said the song don't sound like the Sex Pistols because The Clash never sounded like the Sex Pistols

It`s ok Neal. I get the same sort of reaction when i say Morrisey is a shit singer, and he`s a miserable twat who can`t write a decent song to save his own miserable existance.

Sh*t singer I'll give you, but he's probably a better songwriter than most.

How is he a sh*t singer? Can he hit notes? Yes. That would make him an at least decent singer. What Rick means is that he doesn't like Morrissey's voice, which is a completely different thing. He also doesn't like his songs. These are opinions of his, which differ somewhat from what Neal was saying, which is that The Clash are a rigidly defined punk band whose songs all sound like The Sex Pistols.

Which isn't a matter of opinion - he's just plain wrong.
