The Clash's "London Calling" Used for 2012 Olympic Campaign

The Olympics are using The Clash's "London Calling" for their ad campaign for Summer 2012's games in the United Kingdom's capital. Of course, the song is actually about a nuclear apocalypse and almost a shot at the city's pre-punk snottyness, but context aside, it's a pretty clever move.

Would Joe Strummer have approved?
