London Calling is the third studio album by the English punk rock band The Clash. It was released in 1979 (1980 in the U.S).

The album represented a significant change in The Clash's musical style, which now featured major elements of ska, funk, pop, soul, jazz, rockabilly and reggae far more prominently than in their previous two albums.[1]
