Tony from San DiegoOne of rock's most under rated cuts. Try and play what Topper does on drums cleanly and with that slick cut groove.
Jeff from London, United KingdomStrummer once described this song as the best song Paul Weller never wrote.
Ross from Leicester, United KingdomStrummer said he wrote it about Jone's childhood but supposedly it's actually more about his own growing up in suburbia. I've read a lot of Clash/Strummer interviews over the years and stories and explanations tended to change from inerview to interview! I even saw an interview where he claimed to remember chanting "Thatcher!Thatcher! Milk snatcher!" in the school playground (a reference to Margaret Thatcher as education secretary stopping free school milk). Strummer would have been about 20 years old at the time!!
Scott from Boston, MaThis is my favorite Clash song along with "Straight to Hell". Such an awesome song.
Brad from Long Island, Ny"I wasn't born, so much as I fell out". Classic
