This album is legendary. The Clash's '79 album is my personal favourite of theirs. Never has a punk album combined elements of so many different genres so well. The CD opens with the track London Calling and we are blasted away by some raw punk guitar and vocals and a powerful reggae influenced bass line. Other highlights on this album include the more poppy sounding Train in Vain, Lost in the Supermarket and Paul Simonon's Guns Of Brixton. Every song on this album is amazing. This album truly is a masterpiece.
Ramones - Ramones
The Ramones, who are often regarded as the first punk band, released this amazing album way back in 1976. It was their debut album and in my opinion, their best. It opens with the punk rock anthem Blitzkrieg Bop, this song is 2mins and 14secs in length but changed the face of music. …
11 Nov 2008, 18:26 by amodelofcontrolI've held this over from last week, which perhaps would have been a better time for it...but never mind. Songs about politics and all relating to it are an age old idea, but still even after all these years one with legs. And after a quick scan of my collection suggested loads and loads for this, I quickly was able to narrow the selection a little, down to songs about politics and America - which still left me with many options!
Any other suggestions (and I have no doubt there will be many, many more) feel free to add them in the comments.
The oldest song I'll be featuring in the list, one of Sabbath's greatest songs that somehow managed to use the analogy of witchcraft to depict the warmongers of the late 1960s - one of a long line of political songs that came about during the Vietnam war (which could have made a list of it's own, frankly).

Moving a bit further on…
10 Jul 2008, 14:58 by c-rebehnThis summer, I will go to Los Angeles to see my baby Laine, to Singapore to meet Tina and to Bangkok just for the heck of it. Of course, going so far for so long needs a lot of consideration about which songs to feed your MP3 Player with. Here's what I collected for now:
The Ataris - Takeoffs and Landings
If you could go anywhere right now,
Where would you go?
And would you miss me when you get there?
There's no place that I would rather be
Please don't let me go falling from the sky
This "fasten seatbelt" sign just needs to go out
If only you could be, right here by my side
Home wouldn't seem so far from here
Boys Like Girls - Thunder
Today, is a winding road
It's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
Ooo-whoa oh (Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh...)
Your voice...was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder and I said
Your eyes...are the brightest of all the colors
I don't wanna ever love another
You'll always be my thunder
14 Apr 2008, 18:29 by classic_sinfulJust listing all the songs that are sinfuliciously great. Please note that these are in no particular order
Living Colour - Cult of Personality
This song's main riff is awesomeness on its own, and the great solo makes it all just better.
Motörhead - Ace of Spades
Another delicious guitar work along with killer matching vocals.
Sweet - Ballroom Blitz
The drums, the guitar, the (freakin' amazing) vocals, everything in this song makes you want to dance.
And I have to tell ya, I don't really like dancing.
Black Sabbath - Iron Man
This is fucking epic. Anyone that disagrees with me shall burn in hell.
Dick Dale - Misirlou
Many people might remember this from Pump It by the Black Eyed Peas or from the Pulp Fiction Soundtrack, but we all know this song is old as fuck.
And boy, does it rocks our socks.
The Strokes - Reptilia
Some might hate the groaning vocals (which I rather enjoy), but everyone stays with that damn happy riff playing in the head for days after listening to it.

22 Aug 2005, 16:07 by symplekoI drove from my house in the Boston area to Chautauqua, NY over the weekend. It's a straight shot, practically, I-90 for about 500 miles. We left at 4 in the morning so our two-year old could spend as much as possible of the drive asleep.
Pre-loaded into my road trip playlist was Charles Lloyd's Album The Water Is Wide. Excellent stuff for late night contemplation. After that, some Superfly, Shelly Manne, Dexter Gordon, and Nouvelle Vague. By that time all were awake, just in time for Blitzkrieg Bop and California Über Alles to come around. A good drive was had by all.
