International Clash Day is February 7

Every February, many in the music world celebrate one of the greatest rock bands of the 20th century, the Clash, on a day now known as International Clash Day. Any excuse to play lots of music by the Clash…what’s not to love about that?

The celebration began on Seattle station KEXP in 2013, and it’s grown into an international phenomenon.

The Colorado Sound is no stranger to this celebration. And this year (2023) on Tuesday, Feb., 7, we’re going all out, with special programming all day long celebrating “the only band that matters.” 

This year’s theme is “Know Your Rights,” taking the title from the 1982 Clash song on Combat Rock.

Listen all day for music by the Clash, Joe Strummer, and other band members, as well as special stories and trivia.
