Missed it by THAT much…

Joe Strummer of the CLASH only sort of wrote Rock The Casbah.  Drummer Topper Headon came up with it, but his lyrics were so pornographic that Stummer had to rewrite them so the tune could get radio airplay.  Ironically it became their biggest hit after Headon was kicked out of the band because of his drug problem.
