Nice text piece LJ. Here's your answer- "In 1982 the British London-based punk rock group The Clash released the single "Rock the Casbah" about Iran's outlawing of rock music" "The Casbah (French) or as transliterated from Arabic Qasbah (from qasbah, قصبة, 'citadel') is specifically the citadel of Algiers and the traditional quarter clustered round it. More generally, kasbah denotes the walled citadel of many North African cities and towns." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casbah
