    Question The Clash vs. The Ramones

    Whose better? I would have to go with The Clash, on the count of them being more musical and more substance over style than The Ramones. Also, The Clash had Joe Strummer. The Ramones can also get a little mundane to me.

    No contest, but they're all great. The Ramones and the Sex Pistols have about 1/4 the great material of The Clash. The Ramones took longer to come up with the same amount as the Pistols though.

    I'd also add that when it came to style, which is obviously a large part of punk, The Sex Pistols might reign supreme, and more charismatic, which they had to be on the count that they couldn't play their instruments.

    None of the above could really play well.

    True, but I'd argue that The Clash could play 10x better than the Pistols.

    Well...Maybe later, they could. Probably not in 1976.

    Probably not in the very beginning. They were opening for the Pistols then, who were around a few years before them.

    Yeah, if you compare the early versions of the bands, they're both very punk. The Clash evolved, the Pistols broke up in a year.

    When did Slidin' Jake come out. Weeks, months, years after?
