Combat Rock is the fifth studio album by The Clash and was released on May 14, 1982. Originally conceived as a double album, Combat Rock was edited down to a single together with legendary producer Glyn Johns. The album was recorded in New York and soaked up the atmosphere of the city's vibrant hip-hop and graffiti art scenes, mixing funk, rock, hip-hop and reggae. Combat Rock also featured a cameo from beat poet Allen Ginsberg and paid homage to the Scorsese film Taxi Driver. The record was the last to feature the classic Strummer-Jones-Simonon-Headon line-up. Combat Rock featured the singles "Know Your Rights", "Should I Stay or Should I Go", "Rock the Casbah", and "Straight to Hell".
