The Clash
Album
UK Release Date: 8 April 1977

This album was the first major punk record to be released in the UK. It was later released in the US on July 23rd 1979.

Iconic artwork, alongside themes of Britain’s disaffected youth, unemployment, drugs, rioting and oppressive policing acted as a blueprint for the burgeoning punk genre.

The album's cover version of Junior Murvin's Police & Thieves established an early connection between punk and militant reggae music.
