Are comments necessary?


I've heard different opinions within the coding community regarding comments. One side of the argument is that comments aren't necessary—clean code is. However, there are many strong cases for adding comments, such as: stating what the code is doing for others who may not be familiar with it, easily find specific sections of code to revise or add additional code to, etc.

In your opinion, are comments in coding necessary?
I find comments to be very helpful down the road. That aren't truly needed, but having some tips when editing something 5 years later is nice.
