I don't think The Clash and Stiff Little Fingers were thinking they were doing "non Reggae" covers of these songs, I mean they didn't rearrange them into some other style, they were trying to play these songs as they are to the best of their abilities with the instrumentation they had, it may not be "good" Reggae, or correctly played according to usual standards, but it is still some sort of Reggae in my opinion.

”Redemption Song” on the other hand isn’t Reggae to begin with (at least not in the common version).

It is really hard to think of songs that originated as a Reggae arrangment but was later covered in a different style.

seems the other current 'FAO Moderator' thread has gone off-topic into punky reggae party (or was that grumpy reggae party :D )

so i'll try keep the punky reggae party ropes-in to the appropriate thread, with a D.O.A. live cover of the Wailing Souls / Ranking Trevor song "War'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36e3dNhjHmA&frags=pl%2Cwn

of interest, the D.O.A. lead singer, who went by the stage name 'Joey Sh*t Head' (given name Joe Keithley) is now a notable name in Canadian politics. He hasn't won elected office but has generated major respect and support ... further info available via wiki
