YMMV: The Clash
  • Awesome Music: London Calling
  • Epic Riff: The famous "London Calling" bassline.
  • Face of the Band: 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.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Cut the Crap. Except for "This is England".
  • Misaimed Fandom: "Rock the Casbah" was popular among US Armed Forces operating in Iraq (both wars), much to the horror of the band.
    • 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.
  • Tough Act to Follow: The London Calling/Sandanista! double-whammy, or just London Calling.
