Description

Music video by The Clash performing Rock The Casbah. (C) 1982 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT (UK) Limited

"Rock the Casbah" is a song by the English punk rock band The Clash. It was released as the third single from their fifth album, Combat Rock. Along with the track "Mustapha Dance", "Rock the Casbah" reached number eight on the dance chart. It is the band's highest charting single worldwide. 

The song gives a fabulist account of a ban on rock music by the Sharif or King being defied by the population, who proceed to "rock the casbah". The King orders jet fighters to bomb any people in violation of the ban. The pilots ignore the orders, and instead play rock music on their cockpit radios.
