Are you honestly going to tell me that "Lover's Rock" isn't dull ****? And I don't even know how anyone in the band thought "Guns of Brixton" was worth recording. I guess they just wanted to throw Paul Simonon a bone.

Okay, Guns of Brixton is awesome and one of their best songs. That's definitely not part of the album's filler. It's in the top three songs of the album IMO with the title track and Spanish Bombs.

OMG how the **** why? Those vocals are an insomnia cure, and two songs after "Supermarket", an actual clever social commentary, "Guns of Brixton"'s message is so basic and cringe inducing that it's embarrassing. Oh and forget that it was written by The Clash and it becomes an NRA anthem.

My top three favorite tracks are Guns of Brixton, The Call Up and Police on my Back, which was written by Eddie Grant (Electric Avenue) when he was with the Equals.

Guns of Brixton


The Call Up


The Equals - Police On My Back

If we're going top three Clash songs and not just the three best on London Calling, I'd have London Calling no. 1 and Remote Control and Spanish Bombs rounding out the top three.

I mean yeah, **** yeah. The ratio of perfect pop songs to underwhelming **** is pretty crazy. I just can't make it all the way through "The Guns of Brixton" unless I'm not paying attention when it comes on.
