Produced by longtime Clash collaborator Don Letts, The Clash Live: Revolution Rock seamlessly weaves together 22 definitive live concert and studio performances from 1977 to 1983 capturing the groundbreaking British band who established and expanded the power of punk-rock in the 1970s, 1980s and beyond.

The Clash Live: Revolution Rock follows the live transformation of the band, incorporating footage from all phases of the Clash's meteoric career, beginning with live-in-the-studio clips from 1979, crescendoing with triumphant concerts from clubland (London's The Music Machine, 1978) and theatres (the Lyceum, 1978, 1980), and climaxing with an transcendent blow-out, opening for The Who at New York's Shea Stadium in 1982.

The film also contains two television interviews dating from June 1981, when the Clash were in New York City playing an historic three-week, 17-show run at Bond's International Casino on Times Square. The first interview is with Tom Snyder on The Tomorrow Show, his long-running late-night NBC network staple, the second with local New York news anchor Sue Simmons on WNBC's Live At 5 broadcast.

Formed in London during the first wave of punk-rock in 1976, the Clash, known at the time as "The Only Band That Matters," became the most progressive and visionary rock band of its era, releasing five albums in six years, each a brave step into uncharted territory. Joe Strummer (guitar, vocals), Mick Jones (guitar, vocals), Paul Simonon (bass) and, at various times, drummers Nicky "Topper" Headon, Terry Chimes, and Pete Howard embraced the energy and confrontational attitude of punk. Refusing the limitations of any musical genre, the Clash incorporated elements of reggae, funk, dub, rap, hard rock and roots rockabilly into a continually evolving and challenging sound. Taking its name from the headlines of the day, the Clash wrote songs addressing the issues of class and race confronting the UK in the 1970s.

The Clash was induced into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in January 2003, a month after the untimely passing of the group's frontman, Joe Strummer, age 50, in December 2002.

The Clash Live: Revolution Rock is the perfect way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Clash, the once-and-future "Only Band That Matters."
