I don't love them but I like them.  I have their big box set "Clash on Broadway" which has a bunch of nice demos, B-sides, alt. lyrics, etc.  I don't think they're the end-all and be-all of punk but they're a good band and Joe Strummer was immensely talented.

Huge fan, easily in my top 5 music list.

Love to get B-Sides and bootlegs like the awesome instrumental version of "Overpowered by Funk". I think I got a DVD full of bootleg mp3s. And check out "Straight to Hell" from SNL on your favorite facetube.

Strummer was a really weird person,  just listen to his ramblings during concerts. Yet, I like the atmosphere in the band.

I like the way they incorporated musical styles into their repertoire. I know a Berlin ~1980 hardcore band that has done a version of Armagideon Time which sounds really weird as they adapted only parts of it. But because of that it sounds unique, it is basically an import of a foreign style where the original itself was the import of a foreign style.
