I love sampling… when it’s done right, and here it is done so, so, so right. Rush is a perfect combination of all of Mick Jones’ influences, and then some. It’s the only place I know of where you can find The Sugarhill Gang, The Who, Deep Purple and Peter Sellers in the same span of 4:50. I love so much of the all of the¬†Clash’s post-Clash work, but this song is always a highlight for me.
