The Clash is the debut studio album by English punk rock band the Clash. It was released on 8 April 1977 through CBS Records. Written and recorded over three weeks in February of 1977 for a paltry £4,000, it would go one to reach on the UK charts, and has been included on many retrospective rankings as one of the greatest punk albums of all time. Initial copies of the US version also came with a bonus 7-inch single which featured "Groovy Times" and "Gates of the West". It was another moderately successful album for the Clash in the United States, even though the sales were likely diluted by the longstanding popularity of the UK version on the import market. The Clash peaked at number 126 on the Billboard charts, setting the stage for the commercial breakthrough of London Calling later that year.

The Clash - Groovy Times Şarkı Sözü. The high street shops are boarded up An' the terrace it is fenced in See-through shields are walled across The way that you came in But there's no need to get excited. As the lorries bring the bacon in 'cos the housewives are all singing Groovy times are here again.
The Clash followed in April and can be considered the quintessential British punk album, down to the ragged (but highly suitable) production by their sound man Mickey Foote, photocopied/typed artwork, and subject matter. Recorded in a matter of days and fuelled by speed, the presence of a few bum notes did nothing to dilute its power. The Clash were just streets ahead of the support acts. For their set there was lots of pogoing and the spitting was relentless. Poor Joe Strummer was covered in spit. They looked great; just like their pictures on the cover of the first album.
