Does It Clash?

Aha! It's not much to look at, but I finally found a version of this video that is embeddable. So crank the volume and commence to Rockin' that Friday, my pretties!

Rock The Casbah, The Clash

This is one of my most favorite-y of favorites from Back In The Day. I'd love to work it in to my tale but it's two years too late. Oh well. I'm off to bury myself in the swamp that will continue sucking up every spare ounce/inch/amp/watt/joule of my mental energy for the next 16 days, 13 hours, and 27 minutes, give or take....

  1. According to Wikipedia: "One theory is that the song was inspired by the banning of rock music in Iran under Ayatollah Khomeini.[2] The song gives a fabulist account of the ban being defied by the population, who proceed to "rock the casbah". The King orders jet fighters to bomb any people in violation of the ban. The pilots ignore the orders, and instead play rock music on their cockpit radios."
