The eponymous debut by The Clash was released in 1977. The songs themes dealt with race, sex, politics and economics. It includes the classic short, sharp shock of White Riot and the band’s sublime cover of Junior Murvin’s Police & Thieves, where the band first showed their reggae influences.

While the Sex Pistols can be credited with first bringing punk to the studio and the stage, the Clash gave it an identity and defined it more than any punk band to date. Both the band and their debut album from 1977 show punk music in its rawest form and its message in an unapologetic fashion just as it should be. The basic and beautiful hardcore punk is displayed in every song and all of them spit in the face of authority with a bold fierceness often lacked by many sociopolitical bands even today.
