Wow, thanks for posting and cheers to whomever uploaded it.

Could be because i absolutely love the original, but outside of I Wanna Be Sedated and Killboy Powerhead this could be my favorite cover by them.

Lovin' it ... Thanks for sharing Matus
Since the tour has started off like this (new song & a cover), I'm sure there will be plenty more surprises from the band.

ohh that's fuckin' awesome! I hope this song is going to be on the next album!

Not diggin' this cover I have to say, but then I'm not fond of the Clash original version. I fuckin' love the Clash, it's just not one of my favourites by them. Since Paul Simonon can't sing, at all.

My favourite cover of theirs is a three way tie between Smash It Up, Sin City, or Holiday in Cambodia. Though I think Sin City might be my favourite actually, it's better than the original which is kind of funny to say of a Punk band covering classic rock, but Jesus it's a great cover.

thank you, productive member of the board.

Cool cover. Close to the original.

Trivia: In the Americana pre-tour Unwrittnen Law played this one opening up for The Offspring.

I know I don't post here much, but I really am a huge fan both of The Offspring and The Clash, and I'm not digging Dexter's singing here, he's a bit outta tune. But still this is pretty awesome :) I'll be turning those videos to mp3 soon, I'll be sure to post links here for you to have, is megaupload cool for everyone?

The Guns Of Brixton The Clash cover by The Offspring is hella good. But how come Tim Armstrong (The Transplants) & Cypress Hill (rapper) copy the sound to "'What's your name.. What's your number"' song? :confused:

I love The Offspring, but I'm not too sure if Dexter's vocals are right for a Clash cover. Honestly, I love the cover, but I think it may just be my obsession with The Offspring. The guitar sounds a hell of a lot like the original, though. It's great.
