* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: ''London Calling''
* EpicRiff: The famous "London Calling" bassline.
* FaceOfTheBand: Strummer, and to a lesser extent Jones. Except if you're a groupie, then you'd want to go after Simonon. Topper is... less fortunate, despite having an excellent reputation on his drumming abilities.
* FanonDiscontinuity: ''Cut the Crap''. Except for "This is England".
* MisaimedFandom: "Rock the Casbah" was popular among US Armed Forces operating in Iraq (both wars), much to the horror of the band.
* MisattributedSong: The boys have commonly been mistaken for recording "Tainted Love," which was actually recorded by Music/SoftCell.
** And another hit song "Should I Stay Or Should I Go?" was used by the Army to drive Panamanian dictator Manuel Noreiga out of the Vatican embassy he was hiding in during the 1989 invasion of Panama.
