Clash Week, Pt. 1: The Money Feels Good



The Guns Of Brixton was the only song written by Paul Simonon (who's now in The Good, The Bad And The Queen) ever to be released on an album of The Clash. There must be a gazillion cover versions of this one and the bassline has crossed over into mainstream pop via the sample used by Norman Cook's Beats International (before he became Fatboy Slim).

Interestingly enough, the song was released way before the Brixton Riot of 1981.
