NIGHT MUSIC: The Clash, “Guns on the Roof”

After success, our boys are conflicted. Issues erupt, involving drugs and guns. They’ve been in court and are obliged to tell the truth, the whole truth.

The band’s second album seethes with rock arguments for their acting out and recognizing (but not apologizing) that maybe they’ve crossed the line. Embarrassed by misdemeanors? I suspect yes, even though this song makes no apologies.

“I like to be in Europe man, say goodbye to everyone.” That’s dark.
