Can I be the first to troll and say I DID IT?

I'm vehemently against the death penalty, except for the asshole who did this.

slow news day?

I think the swastika is way worse than the moustache, especially since Joe was vehemently anti-right wing. I can't believe nobody has mentioned that.

That's just the wrong-em boyo.

Thanks 11:15 you took the words right outta my mouth...or off of my keyboard...why the fuck is this important and newsworthy???

It's an eyesore anyway.

This is news?

it looks better now

Agree 100% with 10:34!!

It looks like some 17 year old dressing like Strummer before he's about to get expelled from scholl and start a downward spiral in life. Hey, we all went to HS with some loser like that!

Strummer aka legend aka icon aka rock hero...RIP

^ Yes, I typed quick and misspelled 'school'. Joke's on me. wahh wahhhhhh

Totally agree it's a terrible mural anyhow. All of the portrait ones are. The subject always looks like they've had a stroke.

dear joe strummer,

i hope the afterlife is as boring as your music was.

love,

ian stuart

it doesn't look like Joe Strummer,
it looks like a punk offspring of a smurf and an oompa loompa

dear ian stuart,

Your attempt to conquer the world with your band Skrewdriver failed. How boring is rotting in hell?

sincerely,
most rational human beings

are you sure that is not shawn penn, the dude that used to bone madonna?

It's a sad state when MIA's Paper Planes is not recognized as a complete rip-off of The Clash.

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2012 1:03 PM

Did a Puerto Rican paint that or something?

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2012 1:15 PM

He was around last November:

Huh. I heard Chico died a few years ago actually. I suppose my info was wrong. Glad to know he's still doing his thing! He is a great fixture to the east village.

I miss the East Village when it was seedy.

I miss the East Village when it had Joe Strummer in it

I miss the east village when bundles were 50 bucks each.

Racist guy, go find a skinhead message board somewhere, okay!

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2012 3:56 PM

Which one is racist guy?

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2012 4:04 PM

why is the mustache so far to the right (strummer's left)? it's like hanging off his face

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2012 5:18 PM

Look at the close up - don't think it's a moustache
possibly a failed cover up of whatever's written next to the swastika. Just some average shitty vandalism either by a neo-Nazi or a loser who thinks Nazi symbols are cool & shocking because the Pistols wore them once :-( . Agree with 10:34 massive fan & the video with it being made & all the candels is touching and all that but that mural looked crap since it's original version.

There was a time when the clash was relevant...unlike the garbage music today...verve pipe..and allike...no angst no anything...good luck gen X'rs...yer gona need it without a moral compass..maybe you can squat downtown nyc again and have police spray you in face with mace..then cry like a baby and call out for mommy..Joe wouldnt have done that....he was a man.
