Covers: I Fought the Law

The original version of “I Fought the Law” was recorded by the Crickets in 1959.  The most famous version was the 1965 one by the Bobby Fuller Four.

The Clash blasted through it in 1978 with a great guitar solo.  It was their first single released in the US.

Green Day covered it in 2004.
