The Clash

The Clash was a British rock group that existed from 1976 to 1986. One of the most successful and iconic bands from the first wave of punk rock in the 1970s, they incorporated punk, reggae, rockabilly, and eventually many other music styles into their repertoire. They were legendary for their uncommonly intense stage performances. From their earliest days as a band, The Clash stood apart from their peers with their musicianship, as well as their lyrics. The band's 1979 album London Calling is considered by critics one of the greatest albums in the history of rock music; Rolling Stone declared it the best album of the 1980s. Their hit songs include "London Calling", "Rock the Casbah", and "Should I Stay or Should I Go".

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

Bruce Springsteen toured with the E Street Band, in addition to recording and performing as a solo artist and with other musicians. Springsteen is most widely known for a unique brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. He has earned numerous awards, including thirteen Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with a very large, devoted, and long-lasting fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. Hit singles are simply too numerous to list here; there were seven hits released from the “Born to Run” album alone.

Springsteen is only in this competition because of a SEVERE technicality. The "E Street Band" was barely a backup band to a one-man show.


The Clash should actually take this easily. ;-D

Gotta go with the Clash. Springsteen was never my bag, really. Not that the Clash was, but, yeah.
