Ramones [Import]

Rhino 74306.2

Released on June 19, 2001


The Ramones' April 1976 debut, recorded for little more than $6,000, long ago passed into legend. Its exalted status as the inspiration for thousands of punk bands worldwide, though, hasn't overshadowed its monolithic roar, the knowing hilarity of its lyrics ("Judy Is a Punk" crams the SLA, the Ice Capades, and a salute to Herman's Hermits into a 90-second frame), and the impulse to blast it for everyone within earshot: Hey, listen to this. Embracing and rewriting rock & roll history at once, Ramones speeded up heavy music, adding a pop patina to songs inspired by horror movies and glue sniffing, and claiming a great Chris Montez tune ("Let's Dance") from the supposedly fallow period that had fallen between Elvis and the Beatles. Absurdist, yeah (how could anything with Joey's super-affected Liverpool-via-Queens accent be otherwise?) and also smart: "Havana Affair" is the greatest song about the cold war this side of Dylan. This remastered edition complements the original LP with a slew of demos, including a Spectoresque "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend," and the single version of "Blitzkrieg Bop," that, equally prophetically, puts Joey's vocal through a mixing trick that makes him sound like he's on the mic at a football game. --Rickey Wright

Now who in hell has never heard this grand daddy? If you never heard of this, Then were did you come from, Afghanistan? And if you never heard this record,Get off your butt and make that purchase. If you don't get it right now,than you ain't really a punk. Cuz the Ramones invented real punk back in 76'Gabba,Gabba,hey.Ramones rule.The bonus tracks are cool as well.

Hey dumbass its the Ramones without them there'd be no punk rock so buy the CD. The only real bad thing about the CD is that they didn't include the whole demo but just a few songs from it
