This (dulled) Knife of Sheffield Useless Steel

This is England

This knife of Sheffield steel

This is England

This is how we feel

… snip …

In “This is England” you hear the music of failed revolution. The song captures the grief and sadness of living amid the ruins of that defeat, of community torn asunder, of dreams turning into nightmares, of hope mocked and finally destroyed.

In a verse that Strummer mangles even more than usual-he’s got quintessentially bad English teeth that led one writer to compare his mouth to a bottle opener-this leaps out of the song: “I got my motorcycle jacket but I’m walking all the time.”

Dig that.
