Classic Punk Single of The Day: The Clash, "(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais"

On This Date in 1978: The Clash released its fifth single, “(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais.”  This song contains my very favorite Clash lyrics, ever: “Turning Rebellion Into Money.” If that isn’t a concise  manifesto for Punk Rock – and Rock & Roll in general – I don’t know what is.
