Rock the Casbah Lyrics. Now the king told the boogie men You have to let that raga drop The oil down the desert way Has been shaken to the top The Sheik he drove his Cadillac He went a' cruisin' down the ville The Muezzin was a'standing On the radiator grille.

Rock the Casbah, on the other hand, brings us some solid new wave, dance vibes. Know Your Rights and Death Is A Star are songs that impress with strong, fighting words, though Death Is A Star is one of those songs which makes us question ourselves whether we are listening to the Clash or it’s a completely different band – it just sounds too bizarre. Overpowered by Funk sounds very out of place but then again, the album’s aim is the opposite of providing us with a consistent feeling. On the contrary, if you want to get rid of your boredom and have fun, this is the album for you. Overall, inconsistency might be a good thing when it’s done in the right way and with the right proportion of experimentation and variety. Combat Rock is too strange, too wild and too distressing. However, after all, we are talking about the Clash and they can never be anything else than that.
The album itself climbed No. 27, and while The Clash would achieve greater commercial success three years and two records later with Combat Rock - the one that spawned Rock the Casbah and Should I Stay or Should I Go? - - London Calling is the band’s artistic pinnacle. The record dropped stateside in early January 1980, which is why Rolling Stone named it the best album of the '80s, and should the world survive long enough for critics in 2480 to list the finest records of the preceding 500 years, London Calling will be a strong contender for top honors. Originally done by Danny Ray and the Revolutioneers, Revolution Rock isn’t about overthrowing any governments, but rather freeing your feet and letting your inhibitions go. With the help of sidemen the Irish Horns, the Clash get downright giddy. Playing requests now on the bandstand!
