Holy Fuck! I nearly forgot to do this. Also, Holy Fuck! How about them Mountaineers against the Texas Longhorns in a nail-biting victory. Got to show my hometown pride for a team that could very well go to the National Championship in college football if we remain undefeated the rest of the season. Add in the fact that Geno Smith is the clear frontrunner for this year’s Heisman trophy, and it’s been a long time since it has felt this good to be a Mountaineer! (Side note, I am a student at West Virginia University. And I’ve been at this school way too damn long). Anyways, back to my actual post. If there’s any question about whether or not the Clash are the greatest punk band of all time, there shouldn’t. With more musical talent and lyrical ingenuity than any of their peers (possibly combined), the Clash are everything a punk band should aspire to be. If for no other reason, they weren’t content to just sit around and make punk music. They also did rock, they did hip-hop, they fucking created ska more or less with their love of reggae. They also have what may have been the world’s first “twee”-pop sing with “Hitsville UK.” I had chosen this before the WVU victory, and the song is actually about British payola scandals. But WVU is turning into the Hitsville of Big 12 football so we’ll make it work. LET’S GO MOUNTAINEERS!!!!
