The GREAT Clash SURVIVOR Poll of 2019: RESULTS

Post by Flex »

Thought it might be a good idea to have a thread where results can be posted for those curious how the madness went down. I'll update with a new post after every round closes.

It was the weakest track out of a bunch of good ones.


Also, it’s not that great.

Admittedly that poll probably had the most consistent list of good songs out of all the polls but RG is better than City Of The Dead plus RG is great.

Rocker's Galore is both worse than just about every b side that came before it, and better than just about every b side that came after.

RG is the one that’s just Mikey Dread talking over Bankrobber right?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Still grieving over Dictator, hardly the worst song on the side.

It isn’t and it isn’t.
Good god, I'm agreeing with you again. City of the Dead is great, a proper song. Whilst I like Mikey's toasting on Living In Fame, Rockers Galore always seemed like a lazy toss off.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board
