London Calling is the third album from The Clash.

The iconic cover photograph of bass player Paul Simonon smashing his guitar to pieces was taken by photographer Pennie Smith at the New York Palladium in 1979. Simonon was reportedly unhappy with the band's performance, and wrecked his guitar during the final song White Riot. He later gave the watch he wore that night to Smith as a present, broken as he swung around his guitar, the hands stuck at ten-to-ten.
