We Are The Clash Lyrics


Punk rockers, hip-hoppers
Brit poppers, show stoppers
Beboppers, hair droppers
Are you ready to sing?

Right wing, left wing
I want something
To see me through (???)
Bout what do you think

We ain't gonna be treated like trash
We got one thing
We Are The Clash
What?
We are the Clash
It's like a patch
You can strike that match

With my guitar now
(???) last dance
I see them where they (???)
How they usually stay

Beating on a drum
Did they tell them 'take it in'
Got the (???)
Where the fat boy blew

We ain't gonna be treated like trash
We got one thing
We are the Clash
That's right
We are the Clash
It's like a patch
You can strike that match

Home fires burnin'
In motorcycle city
The rockin' gods will choose
If I'm worthy to live
The first (???) engine
(???) forty-six
And there's no more (???)
To imitate respect

We ain't gonna be treated like trash
We got one thing
We are the Clash
Don't take no shit
We are the Clash
Do ya hear me?
It's like a patch
You can strike that match

We Are The Clash
  • This song was written in the aftermath of the sacking of founding member Mick Jones from The Clash, who threatened to form a new band with fellow fired Clash member Topper Headon and use The Clash name. Singer Joe Strummer was infuriated, and wrote "We Are The Clash" as an angry response to make it clear to fans who the "real" Clash were. In the end, Mick's threat was empty, and he instead formed the entirely new band: Big Audio Dynamite.
  • "We Are The Clash" is the sign of a general anti-Mick Jones attitude in the Clash camp after his firing. As well as playing the song live in the post-Jones lineup, singer Joe Strummer would change the lyrics to previous songs to attack Jones. For example, "Complete Control" saw the "You're my guitar hero!" lyric changed to "F--k off guitar hero!").
  • The Clash played this song regularly throughout 1984, presumably to make the point known to their fans that this was still the true Clash despite the firing of half of their core members in 1982-3. Part of the reason the band toured so extensively in 1984 before recording the Cut the Crap record was to gel the new lineup (new drummer plus TWO new guitarists to replace Mick Jones), and to demonstrate their commitment to their fans.
