An almost impossible task...
I love all their songs.
Except a couple of instrumental tracks on "Sandinista!"

1) "Gates Of The West"
2) "City Of The Dead"
3) "Clash City Rockers"
4) "Armagiddeon Times"
5) "Tommy Gun"
6) "We Are The Clash"
7) "I'm So Bored With The USA"
8) "Stay Free"
9) "Janie Jones"
10) "Washington Bullets"

And the list goes on...and on...and on...

I love The Clash. ALL of their albums. I think they had it ALL.
