Enter to Win the Clash’s ‘Sound System’ Box Set

a Rafflecopter giveaway

The Clash may not be the “only band that matters,” as fans and critics are fond of saying, but in the pantheon of mega-important rock ‘n’ roll outfits, these London guitar slingers are way, way up there. No respectable record collection is complete without their five classic studio albums, all of which Sony Legacy has bundled into the new ‘Sound System’ box set, due out Sept. 10. The mammoth collection also includes three discs of b-sides, demos and rarities, as well as a DVD of unseen footage, and alongside our pals at Ultimate Classic Rock and Loudwire, we’re giving away a copy. Enter via the widget above.

Comprising virtually everything the Clash recorded, ‘Sound System’ traces the band’s journey from scrappy punk agitators to world-conquering genre slayers. Led by iconic frontman Joe Strummer and guitarist Mick Jones, the foursome played everything from rockabilly and dub reggae to disco and hip-hop, and highlights of this must-own package include their incendiary 1977 self-titled debut, 1979′s virtually flawless ‘London Calling’ and 1982′s ‘Combat Rock,’ the commercial breakthrough that produced the hits ‘Rock the Casbah’ and ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go.’

Of course, ‘Sandinista!’ (1980) and ‘Give ‘Em Enough Rope’ (1978) ain’t bad either, and as if that — plus all of the demos, live cuts, b-sides, alternate takes and videos — weren’t enough, ‘Sound System’ includes badges, stickers, fanzines and dog tags, all packaged in a box that looks like a ghetto blaster. If you’re a Clash fan, you need this. ‘Nuff said.

The contest runs through 11:59PM EST on Sept. 9 — click here for the official rules.
