The Clash Live: Revolution Rock (DVD)

This collection of rare live Clash performances was produced by Don Letts. The film features an array of live performances from the band from the late 70s and early 80s. Bonus features include interviews with the band on NBC's 'Live at Five' and 'The Tomorrow Show With Tom Snyder' from 1981. Starting in early March, PBS will be broadcasting excerpts from the DVD.

Some bands are defined by their time period while others transcend it. And while it's true The Clash will always be associated with the British punk scene of the 1970s, their sound has proven to be way ahead of its time and still manages to sound cutting-edge no matter what generation digs on it. This collection of performances from across their entire career will remind fans why The Clash are one of the most important, and perhaps best sounding, bands in rock history. Included here is footage from studio recordings; famed London venues; and a massive, stage-rocking extravaganza held at Shea
