The problem i find with old punk bands in the lack of technical talent and most of the clash's music is very time and area specific
As in the huge lack of employment in the u.k. in the 80's and riff's are based on basic chords and i cant stand the regge they do
The ramones also use a few basic chords and have mostly short simple songs But music is all about prefrence what you like is what you like and thats it
