The Clash

The Clash were an English punk rock band that formed in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk. Along with punk, their music incorporated elements of reggae, ska, dub, funk, rap, dance, and rockabilly. For most of their recording career, the Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar, vocals), Paul Simonon (bass guitar, vocals) and Nicky "Topper" Headon (drums, percussion). Headon left the group in 1982, and internal friction led to Jones's departure the following year. The group continued with new members, but finally disbanded in early 1986. more »

We're going through a tight wind

Police and thieves in the streets, oh yeah
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street, oh yeah
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition

From genesis to revelation
The next generation will be, hear me
From genesis to revelation
The next generation will be, hear me
And all the crowd comes in, day by day
No one stops it in any way
All the peacemaker, turn war officer
Hear what I say, he-e-ey

Police and thieves in the streets, oh yeah
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street, oh yeah
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition

From genesis to revelation
The next generation will be, hear me
Throw it up, throw it up, throw it up, throw it up, throw it up
Oh yeah
Throw it up, throw it up, throw it up, throw it up, throw it up
Oh yeah

And all the crowd come in, day by day
No one stop it in anyway
All the peacemaker, turn war officer
Hear what I say, he-e-ey

Police, police, police and thieves, oh yeah
Police, police, police and thieves, oh yeah
From genesis-is-is-is-is-is-is-is-is-is, oh yeah
Police, police, police, police and thieves, oh yeah

And I'm scaring, I'm fighting the nation, oh yeah
Shooting, shooting their guns and, guns and ammunition, oh yeah
Oh yeah, police, police, police and thieves, oh yeah
I'm scaring, oh yeah
I'm scaring the nation, police, police, police, police, oh yeah

Here come, here come, here come
The station is bombed, oh yeah
Get out, get out, get out you people
If you don't want to get blown up, oh yeah
The police, the police and the thieves, oh yeah
You got an extra grand
But you got trapped in the middle of police, police, police
Police, police, police, police
Police, police, police, police
Police, police, police, police
Police, police, police, police
