REVIEWS
Average points: 4.65 (Reviews: 34)
*****
einer meiner persönlichen 1.mai-songs... rockt schön knapp & kurz, haut aber ganz ordentlich rein. 1985 ganz hinten in den britischen charts.
*****
Ist zwar ein Cover, doch egal - denn so haben es nur The Clash hingerotzt! Vom 79er "The Clash" Album (US Version). Ein zorniger Song, der Titel sagt alles...
*****
Prima.
*****
Auch auf der EP «The Cost Of Living», war immerhin #22 in GB. Mir gefällt vor allem der "Männerchor" im Refrain. Beinahe das Maximum an Punkten.
*****
Richtig rockiges Cover von the Clash. Kurz und bündig "gut"
***
Als Cover mies!
****
A decent cover but the original by The Bobby Fuller Four is much much better!
******
Ihr bestes Lied
*
da muss dann doch die 1 her
*****
I fought the law too, Sacred, für deine lächerliche Bewertung.

Meine Clash #10.

Cooler Titel
****
macht spaß
******
Ich habe momentan eine The Clash und Libertines Phase, in der ich diesen Song natürlich ziemlich oft höre. Love it.
****
ganz ordentlich
***
ein bekanntes lied von clash, aber keines ihrer wirklich guten
******
cool

Sarkastisch gut...
*****
Starke Coverversion.
*****
Besser als sein Original. Im The-Clash-Gewand entwickelt "I Fought The Law" all den Druck und Zorn, den dieser - großartige - Song schon immer gebraucht hat. Trotzdem schimmert ständig ein wenig Pop-Affinität mit.

geilo 4+
*****
Gut, aber für mich mit Sicherheit nicht ihr bester....
*****
Die EP "Cost of living" hüt' ich seit Jahren wie nen Goldschatz, auch wenn das Ding durchs häufige Abspielen schon nahezu graviert ist. "I fought the law" ist ein Beispiel, dass eine Coverversion nicht unbedingt schlechter als das Original sein muss...
*****
Ich kannte zunächst die Live-Version von Bryan Adams.
Aber auch The clash covern hier ... gekonnt.
*****
cool rebellious track
*****
rollt/donnert beim Intro gut, danach eine stimmige Mitklatsch/-stampfnummer – 4.5 (aufgerundet auf knappe 5*)...
*****
rotzt
******
Yeah!
****
... naja, ich würde hier nicht ganz so streng sein wie Ottifant ...
*****
gut
*****
Spitze!
*****
Sicher eines der besseren Cover-Versionen! Note 5.
*****
Riktigt bra cover.
****
▒ Geslaagde 'moderne' rockcover van het origineel van "The Crickets" (1959) door de befaamde Britse punkgroep die bestond van 1976 tot 1985: "The Clash", uit 1977 !!! Eveneens 4 sterren ☺!!!
***
Die Nummer gefällt mir nicht so von ihnen.
