"Clash City Rockers" as written by Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon....
And I wanna move the town to the clash city rockers
Need a little jump of electrical shockers
Better leave the town if you only wanna knock us
Nothing stands the pressure of the clash city rockers

See the rate at they come down the escalator
Listen to the tube train accelerator
Then you realize that you got to have a purpose
This place is gonna knock you out sooner or later

So don't complain about your useless employment
Jack it in forever tonight
So shut your mouth and pretend you enjoy it
Think of all the money you've got

And I wanna liquefy everybody gone dry
Plug into the aerials, poke up in the sky
Burn down the suburbs through the half-closed eyes
You won't succeed unless you try

So don't complain about your useless employment
Jack it in forever tonight
So shut your mouth and pretend you enjoy it
Think of all the money you've got

You owe me a move say the bells of St. Groove
Come on and show me say the bells of Old Bowie
When I am fitter say the bells of Gary Glitter
No one but you and I say the bells of Prince Far-I
No one but you and I say the bells of Prince Far-I

Rock, rock clash city rockers
Rock, rock clash city rockers
Rock, rock clash city rockers
Rock, rock clash city rockers
Rock, rock clash city rockers

    General CommentThis is a Clash cover song..i think it's about how the clash is comming to town and some jerks don't like the music and don't want them to play punk rock in their town, so he's telling them to 'shut your mouth and pretend you enjoy it'. good song.

    General CommentThis song is so rad. I know it's a cover and all, but the guitar riffs matched with Chris' voice are so awesome.

    General CommentUm, im sorry, i didnt realize any of the (quote on quote) "popular" people, even cared about Saves The Day...just because their on mtv doesnt mean everyones going to start liking them. I have asked like 100 people from 2 different states and no one knows who they are. And if they do know who they are they just think their the freaks who sing at your funeral (not one of their best songs) and freakish...i guess you have to listen to their old stuff to appreciate the new stuff anyway cause wherever they seem to go musicalty sounds good to me...."Through Being Cool" is, however, thier best cd in my opinion.

    General Commenti would have to agree with StarLoveHeartXoxO, except for the part when he/she says that through being cool is their best cd. that title would have to go to can't slow down. mainly because of "jodie" and "houses and billboards" and the rest of the album. man...that cd rules. i'm gonna go and listen to it right now.

    p.s. i like this song
