iTunes Review

The Ramones made their deepest mark to date with Rocket to Russia, their third album (and second of 1977). Not only was the album a huge fan favorite, it managed several minor hits on the Billboard singles chart with "Sheena is a Punk Rocker," "Rockaway Beach" and a remake of the '50s classic "Do You Wanna Dance." The sound was their cleanest yet, but tracks like "Cretin Hop," "Teenage Lobotomy," and "We're a Happy Family" were hardly less aggressive or hilariously cutting. Again packing 14 songs into barely more than 30 minutes, the band was at a height of concision and imagination. This expanded edition contains five bonus tracks, including the lost song "Slug" and early and demo versions of "I Don't Care," "Needles and Pins," and "It's a Long Way Back."

Customer Reviews


Punk isn't's waiting.

One of the top 4 Early Punk albums.

This did it for me. This showed me The Ramones were the greatest Punk band ever. Its more clean than previous albums but never lets go on energy and attack. It contains "Teenage Lobotomy", "Were a happy family", and "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" the three greatest Ramones songs Ever, and always suprises you with every song. There is even a ballad which is great("Here today gone Tomorrw"). This "Ramones", "Never mind the bollocks" and "The Clash" are the greatest 70's Punk albums ever. This is The Ramones at the highest Peak they would ever get to, and is required to anyone interested in Punk. New York Punk at its best.

Another Punk Classic

This is another ramones classic which is underrated. You really can't go wrong with any of the first four ramones albums.

The Ramones were the first punk rock band. Other bands, such as the Stooges and the New York Dolls, came before them and set the stage and aesthetic for punk, and bands that immediately followed, such as the Sex Pistols, made the latent violence of the music more explicit, but the Ramones crystallized the musical ideals of the genre. By cutting rock & roll down to its bare essentials -- four chords; a simple, catchy melody; and irresistibly inane lyrics -- and speeding up the tempo considerably,...
