(Radio.com) Following a Facebook petition that garnered over 2,000 signatures, city officials in Granada, Spain have been swayed to name a plaza after former Clash frontman Joe Strummer.

The campaign was started by a neighborhood association and gained some support from a few political parties.

"It was a popular movement," Granada City Council member Daniel Galan told the BBC. "It is very well known the connection between Joe and the city and people still remember him. There were some people who were friends with him and came here and [now] live here." more on this story
