The year was 1980. The first rock festival was held in Russia, Ronald Reagan became the 40th President of the United States of America, Mt. Saint Helens erupted in Washington State…and The Clash released “Bankrobber.We certainly could debate the relative importance of these events to each other, to the time period, to history, etc. but it’s going to take a lot of convincing for me not to rank the band and this song #1. To this day this is still one of my all time favs. Enjoy!
