When this first came out, people said it was irrelevant, or naive: That the issues in the middle east had nothing to do with pop culture, western music or styles, etc… Yet when I see that in Iran today it’s the women who are leading the fight on the front lines of the green revolution, or that the taliban invariably focus their abuse on women who”don’t know their place”, by going to school, wearing make-up, or dressing just a little sexy, I can’t help thinking Joe Strummer nailed it.

Enjoy!
