  1. Give 'Em Enough Rope is the second studio album by the English punk rock band the Clash. It was released on 10 November through CBS Records. It was their first album released in the United States, preceding the U.S. version of the self-titled album/5(38).

  3. The teaming was quite controversial within the punk community, and the sound of Give 'Em Enough Rope is considerably cleaner, yet the more direct sound hardly tamed the Clash. While the record doesn't burn with the same intense, amateurish energy of The Clash, it does have a big, forceful sound that is nearly as powerful.

  5. Sort of the ugly middle-child between the phenomenal The Clash and London Calling, 's Give 'Em Enough Rope still has a few great songs most notably "Tommy Gun" and "Safe European Home". Still worth a listen but go with the aforementioned albums first.
  6. "Tommy Gun" was London punk rock band The Clash's seventh single, and the first single taken from their second album Give 'Em Enough Rope' Joe Strummer said that he got the idea for the song when he was thinking about terrorists, and how they probably enjoy reading about their killings as much as movie stars like seeing their films reviewed.
  7. Now admittedly the field of punk bands' second albums, let alone good second albums is pretty limited, but even so "Give 'em Enough Rope" is a strong contender for the title of punk rock's best "difficult second" album with its excellent singles "Tommy Gun" and "English Civil War" as well as the superb "Safe European Homes" and the sublime /5().
