Strummin The Best Part of John from Cincinnati One Year Out

Hey, remember John from Cincinnati, that wispy, maddening enigma of a series that was on HBO last summer? A year later, and I still can't quite figure what the show was about, but I don't mind it, and I think that's mostly because of the song under the opening credits - "Johnny Appleseed" by Joe Strummer (1952-2002) and The Mescaleros (once of The Clash, "London Calling," and one of my all-time favorites, "Rock the Casbah" ... Shareef don't like it...)

So here's the best of John from Cincinnati, that opening song, in Joe Strummer's original video ... and, hey, just for good measure, I'd put on Rock the Casbah, too ... the immortal soul of punk ... but embedding has been disabled (he thinks it's not kosher...)
