Rock the Casbah: The Best of the 1980′s in 2012

What is this? This is the first in a series of 12 cross-over posts from my other blog, Prof deBock Dance Party commemorating  the top songs of the 1980’s.

Count? 2 of 12!

Song: Rock the Casbah
Artist: The Clash
Year: 1981
Comment:
I don’t understand this song exactly, but I think it is an interesting counterpoint to Celebration by Kool and the Gang (yesterday’s video.)  Kool and the Gang typify the funk roots; The Clash typify its punk roots.
