The Clash frontman Joe Strummer was still upset when he died that his hit ROCK THE CASBAH was the first song played on Allied Forces Radio after the invasion of Kuwait. The peace-loving rocker lived his final years regretting the fact that his anthem was used as a war victory chant. He died in 2002. Former Clash bandmate Mick Jones tells men's magazine Blender, "When he saw it (Rock The Casbah) put on the side of a US bomb... Joe was in tears. "We hated that appropriation. We never meant anything like that."
