Sadly, Strummer died on December 22, 2002 from a heart defect in his home in England. The death came as a shock to the music world. In the midst of his death, Joe and his band were in the making of a new album, with the title "Streetcore" as the name. The album was still released in October of following year, the way Strummer would have wanted it to. Joe's legacy will always live on as being the political conscience of punk and bringing integrity and purpose to the genre, making him one of the most important figures in music.
