When the Clash collapsed, we were tired. There had been a lot of intense activity in five years. Secondly, I felt we'd run out of idea gasoline. And thirdly, I wanted to shut up and let someone else have a go at it.

Band member Wolfgang Flür: 'No! Someone else told me that they thought the way we speak in German, 'Fahren,' which means driving, sounds like the English word, 'fun.' 'Fahren fahren fahren,' 'fun fun fun.' That is wrong. But it works. Driving is fun. We had no speed limit on the autobahn, we could race through the highways, through the Alps, so yes, fahren fahren fahren, fun fun fun. But it wasn't anything to do with the Beach Boys! We used to drive a lot, we used to listen to the sound of driving, the wind, passing cars and lorries, the rain, every moment the sounds around you are changing, and the idea was to rebuild those sounds on the synth'. Ralf Hütter has said that The Beach Boys were an influence on the band. These quotes are about the classic hit song 'Autobahn' which is sung entirely in German. The phonetics of 'fahren' sounds a lot like 'fun' and this has caused a mix-up with listeners, including me. I wasn't even 10 years old yet when this song hit the charts.

I look at all of the different periods of time where I’ve written lyrics, and they all have their own references and different phases. This one came out pretty clear: I'm a father now, I have to consider a lot more than I used to, and I think I've realised we’re not all as free as we were before. In every way. I mean, as the political arena started heating up in America before the elections, it became clear that there was so much more threatening all of our lives than I'd considered before. I'm looking at a candidate that has blatant disregard for the future environmentally, when it comes to women’s rights, diplomatically...I have three daughters that are going to survive me for decades – how are they going to get on unless there’s some positive and progressive change?- Dave Grohl on the lyrical content of the 'Concrete and Gold' album

“He’s unleashed the ugly side of America. People feel like they have got a free pass to be, if not violent, at least antagonistic towards people of a different colour or a different race. I think we all thought we’d got past that a long time ago.” as told to an NME interviewer about Donald Trump

After the Clash played the famous 1983 US festival the band suffered internal turmoil resulting in major lineup changes made mostly by their manager Bernie Rhodes. In 1984-86 this 'second generation' Clash toured and recorded the final Clash studio album 'Cut The Crap, released in 1985. Strummer went to Spain to chill. In the meantime the "This Is England" single was released. Joe said, "CBS had paid an advance for it so they had to put it out. I just went, 'Well fuck this', and fucked off to the mountains of Spain to sit sobbing under a palm tree, while Bernie had to deliver a record." In early 1986 the Clash disbanded. Joe Strummer has disavowed the 'second generation' Clash, saying 'It was a total fuck-up'.

The 1996 tour was a major success for the band but excessive moshing at some of their shows caused some problems. At a show in Ireland a girl was crushed and later died from moshing despite warnings from the band. At a later gig singer/guitarist Billy Corgan said to the audience: I just want to say one thing to you, you young, college lughead-types. I've been watchin' people like you sluggin' around other people for seven years. And you know what? It's the same shit. I wish you'd understand that in an environment like this, and in a setting like this, it's fairly inappropriate and unfair to the rest of the people around you. I, and we, publicly take a stand against moshing!

We were in Vancouver and someone threw a bra on stage and I just had to pick it up and say "who owns this?"? A girl waved at me and I said "good lord! How are those even up?"? It was a beautiful girl and her mother was sitting right behind her. It's Platinum Blonde! We are never going to change!
