Apparently London Calling by the Clash is being used to promote the 2012 olympics.
have they heard the song?
listened to the lyrics?

descriptions of the apocalypse don't go well with Volleyball and gymnastics do they?

very weird.

That's just for the opening credits. All olympics programmes will end with either Greetings From Shitsville or Down on London. ;P

I would have thought London Burning's lyrics were better "Lahndan's burning with boredom now" well it will be for me, just don't get sport....sorry
