"The Clash were an English rock band formed in London in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk rock. Along with punk rock, the Clash also have played music genres such as post-punk, experimental rock, and new wave and their music often also incorporated elements of reggae, dub, funk, ska and rockabilly. For most of their recording career the Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar, lead vocals), Paul Simonon (bass guitar, vocals) and Nicky Topper Headon (drums, percussion). Headon left the group in 1982, and internal friction led to Jones departure the following year. The group continued with new members, but finally disbanded in early 1986."
