25 Pieces Of Wisdom From Jam Lyrics

Not only were The Jam a musical force of nature, but young Messrs Weller and Foxton had a way with a lyric too, never being afraid to make bold personal and political statements.

It's probably no exaggeration to say that The Jam's lyrics influenced a generation, so we've identified 25 pieces of wisdom from the band's songs.

So, with the new, comprehensive vinyl box set The Studio Recordings being released on November 25th, you can put their records on and accurately claim that you're 'learning': click on the pictures below to start your education.

The Jam - The Studio Recordings, an 8-piece box set, featuring all six studio records remastered on vinyl, plus two extra discs of non-album singles and B-sides, together with a hardback book with new liner notes is released November 25th and available to preorder now
