2007 : 15 "Buckethead" by Carbon/Silicon


The Clash is the greatest band ever. One of the reasons is because when they broke up, they stayed broken up. There are some bands have retired so many times, even Sugar Ray Leonard thinks they have done it too much.

That being said, "Buckethead" really makes me think that Mick Jones still has that Clash fire inside of him. I do not want to write something stupid like "Carbon/Silicon is the Clash for cyberpunks," but I do love the science-fiction narrative of this song. The cost of carbon, Second Life, class conflict—all in a scary world. I think there is a great movie somewhere in this song.
