Time To Get Manly 43: The Clash - Combat Rock

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

The Clash - Combat Rock

Should Combat Rock be in every man's record collection? Sure. But only if said man already owns London Calling, Give 'Em Enough Rope and Sandinista! and he finds Combat Rock used for a dollar at a garage sale. It has that "Rob the Cashbox" song and the hit from Pineapple Express! Maybe that's being slightly unfair since there's a lot to like on Combat Rock (this is a little bit of an overstatement). But for it to be your only Clash record would be decidedly unmanly.
