    I've never seen Billy Elliot.
    That whole soundtrack is fantastic.

    Ooh Underworld. But how is this thread about Underworld now? The fury of the internet, that's how, and it takes no fucking prisoners. Thank God.

    Fun fact: "A Town Called Malice" is the #1 Most Played Song of All Time on my Winamp.
    Why did I always remember this scene to London Calling? I could have sworn.

    THE POGUES!!!



    the clash are fucking great
    the pistols had wonderful lyrics. i kind of like johnny rotten, not much the band per se (but I don't like him with PIL so...uhm )

    the ramones are more like party music for me. I don't even own a record, I respect what they did for music history but they don't connect that much with me. But if they play them I can't stay still or not sing. it's a physical impossibility for me. like with r&b or soul music. I'm not exactly a fan of that type of music, but it gets me moving.

    oh and I like the adverts. and x-ray spex.

    The Clash for me.

    London Calling might be my favorite album ever.

    The Clash. Total no-contest.

    Also, I LOVE that scene from Billy Elliot. I have it on DVD, and I used to watch that scene whenever I felt especially depressed. It is so awesome. I used to sprint just because whenever "A Town Called Malice" came on my iPod. I also love the scene where he auditions for the Royal Ballet School and describes what it feels like when he's dancing. Sigh. Love that movie.

    The Clash seem more "musically talented" and, for that very reason ( able to display complexity, among other things ) less "punk" - which would be the Ramones.

    I remember when Iggy Pop started a lot of this "rock as attitude" - probably himself inspired by Jim Morrison and Jagger, as far as his onstage antics.

    I can't seem to get this youtube mechanism to work. Will post these links instead.

    RIGHT! Listen to The Story of the Clash. So much variety.
    The band was so much more musically adventurous than the other three.
    Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, Jagger and Richards, some songwriters just work so well together.
