(post-) punk gems, v. 47 — The Clash’s “White Riot”

So much remains so raw, so inexplicable, in the wake of the grand jury’s decision regarding Darren Wilson. Music may provide a balm eventually, but not yet, not now. While I certainly understand why Mick Jones eventually found this track tiresome as a closing number, I also understand the sense of urgency,¬†anger, and rage¬†that led Joe Strummer to pen this tune in the first place.

Keep safe this weekend, my fellow Americans.
