Was Clash's 'Combat Rock' the best album of 1982?



I found this video of The Clash performing Straight To Hell from the US Festival back in the early '80s. Were we ever that young?

The Clash didn't impress me much until I heard this song the first time. Only then did I revisit their older material and see the genius. 

2012 marks the 30th anniversary of their album Combat Rock, which featured hits like Should I Stay Or Should I Go and Rock the Casbah. My question to you: Was Combat Rock one of the year's top albums ... or one of its most over-rated?
