The Clash - Rock the Casbah / Long Time Jerk (1982)

Wikipedia - "'Rock the Casbah' is a song by the English punk rock band The Clash, released in 1982. ...  'Rock the Casbah' was musically written by the band's drummer Topper Headon, based on a piano part that he had been toying with. Finding himself in the studio without his three bandmates, Headon progressively taped the drum, piano and bass parts, recording the bulk of the song's musical instrumentation himself. This origin makes 'Rock the Casbah' different from the majority of Clash songs, which tended to originate with music written by the Strummer-Jones songwriting partnership.  ..."
