Sandinista! is the fourth studio album by The Clash. It was released in 1980 as a triple album containing 36 tracks, with 6 songs on each side.
The title comes from the Nicaraguan left-wing guerrilla organization, the Sandinistas.
The album catalogue number, FSLN1 refers to the acronym for Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, a democratic socialist political party in Nicaragua named after Augusto César Sandino who led the Nicaraguan resistance against the United States occupation of Nicaragua in the 1930s.
Joe Strummer who claimed to be a Sandinista in 1980 started to distancing himself from the Sandinistas in Nicaragua circa 1984 because he did not like what they had become.
