I've never heard The Clash's cover of that song though I know the old 50s or 60s version of it.
I'm not a fan of theirs but Rock The Casbah, Should I Stay Or Should I Go and London Calling are their most well known songs. Due to the birth of MTV I would give the edge to RTC, I was only like 5 when that song came out but I remember MTV playing the video for it regularly for like two years straight.
