Clampdown" is a single and a song by The Clash from their album London Calling. In 1980 "Clampdown" was released as a single backed with "The Guns of Brixton" in Australia.
The Indigo Girls' cover also appears on the Clash tribute album, 1999's Burning London: The Clash Tribute. The opening line of "Taking off his turban, they say is this man a Jew?" is commonly misunderstood, with some people claiming it was anti-Semitic. It was apparently also briefly known as For F-ks Sake, before the lyrics were added and the title of Clampdown (a shortening of Working for the Clampdown) was settled on. Joe Strummer claims that the "nuclear meltdown at Three Mile Island got me started" on this song.
