The Clash - "I Fought the Law"

It’s been covered numerous times, but The Clash’s version of “I Fought the Law” is by far the best, knocking out the original. In fact, we’re pretty sure most people think The Clash’s version was the original, but it was actually first recorded by the Bobby Fuller Four. Joe Strummer and Mick Jones from The Clash had been recording some overdubs at the Automatt studio in San Francisco for their second album, and one of the many jukeboxes there had this song on it, which inspired them to cover it.
