YES!!! GDM for the final win. I'll be riding it to the end.

Post-election analysis will show Heston's Clapton-like comments against GDM was crucial to securing its win.
Heston was spewing vitriolic racism?
Hyperbole regarding Heston's claim that GDM isn't even a song, and how Clapton's comment sparked a backlash. Sincere apologies, however, if my joke was considered in poor taste.
I got what you meant. ;)

Can't believe this "song" beat out Coma Girl.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

The Strummer votes have all been about shaking beliefs, it seems. The PTSD cases by the time it's done will dwarf that of the Battle of Verdun.

My favorite Rambo is Weird Al's depiction.

I bet it will be Yalla anyway. This board is SOOOOO predictable now. I'm disenchanted.

I can see why you don't like it, but I consider it a great triumph
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

There's a part of me that's kind of shocked that Heston likes the Clash at all.

I don’t think it’ll be Yalla, because I also love that one. It’ll be Island Hopping because I think that one’s just ok but everyone else seems to consider it crucial.

I'd be good with Yalla or Trash City, too. With the exception of “Island Hopping,” what's left is all pretty dang good.

The reason they are my favourite band of all time is undoubtedly because of Mick's melodic touch and arrangement skills, something I felt was lacking in Joe's post-Clash career.

Which I largely agree with. Where this gets confounded is that you look for way too much good in CtC.

It had more melody than most things that came after it by Joe. Who that was down to, I don't know.
