The panorama of the city is wrong
In fact the city seems to be gone
Burning rubber burning smoke in my eyes
There's a flat burning junkheap for twenty square miles

    Can't wait to see the Joe Strummer documentary on the big screen next week. Have seen it on the tele, but should be good in surround sound!

    This song never gets old, definitely unique even for the Clash.

    Love this song very much, it is quite apocolytic sounding and very dark. Oh and I agree ith Jonnylion down there...

    caring if people think your punk or not isnt punk. not liking the clash just makes you a tool.

    The Clash were only really "punk" on their first albums, they ditched it and mixed it into stuff far beyond punk.

    Do I have to like the clash if I like modern punk? What if I don't like first wave? I hate the Ramones, I hate the Clash, I hate The Exploited, but I love Rancid, MSI, The Offspirng, Bad Religion, NOFX, Time Again, Clit 45, The Vandals, The Unseen and stuff like that...Does that make me like a punk heretic or something?

    This song sounds so.. apocalyptic. One of the reasons I like it so much.
