Dexter actually has very good taste in music. Beastie Boys, the Clash, Dead Kennedys, NWA, etc. Just because his own music is rooted in punk doesn't mean that he should only listen to that kind of music.

Don't forget White Man in Hammersmith Palais....another great Clash song.

I remember one Offspring show I was at they played the B-52's Rock Lobster album during set up. I was a bit surprised at that selection but they did cover "52 Girls" from that album.

There were some Clash songs before Offspring here too, so I guess they played Clash songs before every shows.

i can't believe so many of you don't know any clash songs, or haven't even heard of the clash, period. don't you guys know anything about punk (rock) history?!

(i guess i answered my own question)

I guess they only know of the new, mainstream punk rock. They're dence when it comes to '80s stuff.

They will eventually know them. It's because of The Offspring that I know The Clash and a lot of old punk bands, so maybe (probably) it will be the same with them.

Oh man, I was pumped that they played the Clash before their set cause I had some fun music to dance to while I waited impatiently. You can't not dance to Train in Vain.

Rock the Casba is a good song, so is Should I Stay or Should I Go, which is also by the Clash.

The Clash is the best punk rock band EVER.

If you haven't heard a song, you should start with this songs:

*Rock the Casbah
*London Calling
*White Riot
*Clampdown
*Should I stay or should I go

They have a lot of different songs, reggae,ska,pop,rap, etc.
The Pistols were funny, The Ramones were great, but The Clash stands out because of their lyrics.

For example, CLAMPDOWN

1-2-3-4!
Hey, hey!
Ooh!

Jimmy's outside but you can't take him back for the drama of design
They hit him in the back and see the long arm dropped over the school cuisines
They say now back and hands facing the sidewalk as they slowly click on

What are we gonna do now?
Taking off his turban, they said, is this man a Jew?
'Cos working for the clampdown
They put up a poster saying we earn more than you!
When we're working for the clampdown
We will teach our twisted speech
To the young believers
We will train our blue-eyed men
To be young believers

The judge said five to ten but I say double that again
I'm not working for the clampdown
No man born with a living soul
Can be working for the clampdown
Kick over the wall 'cause government's to fall
How can you refuse it?
Let fury have the hour, anger can be power
D'you know that you can use it?

The voices in your head are calling
Stop wasting your time, there's nothing coming
Only a fool would think someone could save you
The men at the factory are old and cunning
You don't owe nothing, so boy get runnin'
It's the best years of your life they want to steal

You grow up and you calm down and
You're working for the clampdown
You start wearing the blue and brown and
You're working for the clampdown
So you got someone to boss around
It makes you feel big now
You drift until you brutalize
You made your first kill now

In these days of evil presidentes
Working for the clampdown
But lately one or two has fully paid their due
For working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!
Working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong!
Working for the clampdown

Yeah I'm working hard in Harrisburg
Working hard in Petersburg
Working for the clampdown
Working for the clampdown
Ha! Gitalong! Gitalong
Begging to be melted down
Gitalong, gitalong
Work
Work
And I give away no secrets – ha!
Work
More work
Work
Work


If hope Dexter keeps listening to the Clash so he will remember what punk rock is all about.
