Re: "The Clash closed out the rock era"
How many bands--much less punk bands (not generally renowned for their musical virtuosity)--have shown either the desire or the acumen to pull off anything more than the same three chord changes, assuming they even know any chords?
Doesn't that, by definition, make them decidedly non-punk?
