    Strummer is a man. Stipe is a tea-bagger.

    No shape way or form is REM in the same league. Paul Simonon bass playing way outperforms any tracks.

    The Clash re-invented themselves EVERY fu*kin' album they made. Yes- you have to listen to them more than once to "get it". Their tracks give something new every time you play them. Uber creative. Deep political lyrics and unique riffs. And they were true to the art. They didn't stick with a sound just because their last album was successful.

    REM- same sound nearly every album. I like REM but no way they hold a candle to the innovative and bold sound you got from The Clash.

    Top 100 all time rock greats.

    Just 2 references. You won't find many (if any) all time lists with REM over The Clash.


    THE ONLY BAND THAT MATTERS!

    River, you ever hear The Professionals? Simonon, Steve Jones and Paul Cook... Not what you'd expect from a Clash/Pistols supergroup but some decent tunes. Who knew Steve Jones could sing?

    I wouldn't call Michael Stipe a teabagger. I'd call him a teabaggee! :yes:

    I haven't heard The Professionals- I'll check them out. I know Simonon sang lead on some Clash and Jones did backups but not lead.
