Published on July 09, 2011 with No Comments

Complete Control is a song by The Clash, released as a 7″ single and featured on the U.S. release of their debut album.The song is often cited as one of punk’s greatest singles, and is a fiery polemic on record companies, managers and the state of punk music itself, the motivation for the song being the band’s label (CBS Records) releasing “Remote Control” without bothering to ask them, something that infuriated the group. The song also features perhaps the earliest usage of the phrase “guitar hero” in rock music, as sung by Joe Strummer to Mick Jones.
