10 Greatest Songs - #3

The Clash - I Fought the Law

I've liked the Clash since the 70s. My sister (I think) had the London
Calling album and I loved the variety of stuff they did along with the
raw energy of their punk rock sound. It wasn't until a few years ago
that I saw a video of the another cover of this song from the 60s. I had
no idea it was a cover and always assumed it was 100% Clash but it's
not, it's by Sonny Curtis and the Crickets (post Buddy Holly death).
Anyway, The Clash's version is just exploding with aggression and energy
and I love it. You should too!
