The Kelly Clarkson Show host’s powerhouse vocals brought the house down, capturing Mick Jones’ punk spirit from the original song, but simmering down by the end of the chorus when she sings, “Should I stay or should I go now?/ Should I stay or should I go now?/ If I go there will be trouble/ And if I stay it will be double/ So come on and let me know.”
“Should I Stay or Should I Go” was released as a double A-sided single alongside “Straight to Hell” on The Clash’s 1982 album Combat Rock. The song peaked at No. 13 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, but never broke into the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.
