London Calling, Rudie Can't Fail, Brand I'm Not Down, and Wrong Em' Boyo.

If I had to pick just one though, it'd be London Calling. It was the song that got me into punk.

London Calling, Guns of Brixton and Jimmy Jazz or Lost in the Supermarket.

It's really an impossible pick though - the album is godly. And I'll never understand why Should I Stay or Should I Go garners so much attention when just about every song on London Calling is superior.

Not one person will agree with my choice and musically it is nothing special: Hateful. Lyrically brilliant and musically simple yet effective.

Wow Jackhammer has differing tastes then others related to music. Write this moment in history down...Hateful is a great song in my top 5 from the album.

What were your other two choices?

Hateful, Death Or Glory, and The Card Cheat for me. Even though I'm not a big fan of the album, those tracks are really something.
