This Friday (June 28th), British punk rock icons The Clash will be honored with a Silver Clef Award in London for their contributions to UK music. Organized by music charity Nordiff-Robbins, the annual Silver Clef Awards honor artists from across the music industry, while raising funds for their music therapy programs. David Munns, the chairman of Nordiff-Robbins, on honoring The Clash:
“The Clash’s music has just as much influence today as it did when they first came onto the music scene in 1976. It is no wonder London Calling has been described as one of the most influential rock albums of all time.” He then continued on to say: “Having been enormously influential in the UK music scene for over 35 years, I can think of no band more deserving of this award than The Clash.”

The Clash released their last album Cut the Crap in 1985 on Epic Records and disbanded in the following year. This was way before many of our readers/followers/editors were even born. Joe Strummer died in 2002.
