International Clash Day: Seattle Honors London Band with Holiday

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has honored rock legends the Clash by declaring Sunday, February 7th “International Clash Day” in the city, joining King County, Washington and Bridgewater, UK in that recognition.  The Clash is a member of the Rock and Roll hall of fame and have been a humongous pop and punk influence here in the United States.  Here’s what the mayor’s statement said:

“Legendary UK band the Clash formed in 1976, establishing their unique sound combining punk with reggae, dub, funk and ska, behind socially conscious lyrics,” Murray wrote in his official proclamation. “The band played the Kingdome in 1982, outshining headliners the Who and inspiring a young audience member, Jeff Ament, to grow up and become the bassist for Pearl Jam.” One February morning in 2013, KEXP DJ John Richards arbitrarily declared it ‘International Clash Day’ for no other reason than the fact that he could,” the statement continues.

The fun tradition has existed ever since 2013 and doesn’t plan on slowing down.  Radio station KEXP is celebrating on Friday, February 5th, with 12 hours of Clash music. We’ve dug up an old video clip of The Clash appearing on a show that was hosted by Tom Snyder at the time.  Please someone tell us the name of this show!

Happy International Clash Day!
