I believe Def Leppard's Pyromania is the best album ever.

So yeah, London Calling is awesome because it's about a genuine expression of anger and not rage because you're so repressed that your idiot fans can't get the hint from makeup and black leather straps.
Wow, you really are a dick with a superiority complex and possibly a bad case of hemorrhoids. I'm not going to point out your shitty grammar or spelling because that would just be rude, no I'm going to point out some glaring errors you've made during your, quite clearly, "in depth" observations of metal culture.

First error: Bondage Gear and Corpsepaint is a signature of Black Metal, not Death, and was first introduced to separate the movement from other types of metal out at the time.

Second Error: 'London Calling' is a genuine expression of anger yet no metal is? Is that your argument? Do I really need to go any more in depth than that? No.

Maybe you'll soon be the one bursting out of the closet in a shower of semen and gay porn when you finally realise you've repressed your real feelings, Mister Homophobic shithead.

Not to worry, Styled Executioner: after reading some of D-Mon's other comments, it's pretty clear that you probably shouldn't take him very seriously.

It gives me chance to vent my rage in a family friendly, safe, hygienic way anyway. So it's all good.

Heh you'd be right there Prot. However I don't want the little mouth-pooper to feel bad so I wrote a Death/Black metal song for him.

OOOOORRRKKK!!
GORKA BLORKA ORRGRAH ORRH!!
DRAGONS!!
ORRGGHH!! NORK GLOOOOAAAPPPLLGGLAAHH!
DUNGEONS!!
GOPOAAALLPPLLL!!!
SATAN!!
BLAGGLEELOOORRHH!!

Now add some blast beats and some high speed licks and pretend it means something, BLAMMO! Instant black metal and with that magic, you can feel relevant.

My old Art teacher let me put London Calling into the CD Player of his art room, and he was worried that it would have swearing. He mostly listens to Classical music on the ABC Classical Radio channel. You could forgive him for not being that aware of Punk.

But I put it on, and he compared it to the Beatles. I believe he missed the point, since the opening track states "phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust".

I sat at a desk, and listened to this album for the very first time. It was very different from the "The Clash: The Singles" CD I was given for my birthday one year that made me a fan of their music.

But what I noticed about it was, it wasn't really angry music in a yelling way. One of my favorite albums was the Sex Pistols's "Never Mind the Bollocks", and knowing what the other side of Punk was, I was able to see how The Clash used Punk in their own way, distanced from Anarchy, but still political.

You know, there are some times in your life, that when you hear so much about an album being good, and you finally listen to it with your own ears, that you remember forever. I guess it was the experience of putting it in a CD player before my iPod that really gives you the feel of an album that you rarely get these days, since iPods and stuff like that have made music portable, yet there are sometimes when an album was not meant to have headphones for speakers. It needs to be played to the open air.

Funnily enough, this girl I know came in for an article she needed for research, and she heard the music, identified it, and told me she had it on vinyl. And they say there's no hope for the future, even with kids like us around who listen to good stuff from a past era.

macro death:"Mr. Clown, you are so wrong. The best album ever recorded is Judas Priest's Painkiller, no other."

Totally dude, I made an account just so I can give you props. I stopped hanging out with a kid one time because he said The Clash was better than Judas Priest. The entire world is really just a dream that Rob Halford is having that we happen to be characters in.

War eh? Well heres all the proof you need that Judas Priest is better than The Clash. Rob Halford, the lead singer of Priest, had a painting commissioned of himself atop a mountain of monsters killing them with an ax, in the spirit of Frank Frazetta's Conan works, which he then put on mouse pads and posters and sells on his web site. I think thats check mate, war over.

Except for the fact that your link leads nowhere.

I'm on the "best album ever" bandwagon.

I agree, I had listened to this album quite a bit before I really started liking it. I always thought it was just so damn over-rated, and not very punk at all. I really love how it is so diverse as opposed to say the Ramones, or Stiff little Fingers.

Best Album Ever? Far from it, the best album ever is London Calling by The Clash, you nitwits. I read it on Wikipedia.
