The Singles (1991 The Clash album)

The Singles is a compilation album by The Clash. It includes all their singles, in their single versions, except for 1977's Capital Radio (which, whilst not eligible for chart entry is still considered a single) as well as 1985's "This Is England" due to the Cut the Crap album being disowned by the band at that time.
