EDITORS’ NOTES

One of the most thrilling albums ever made, the Ramones' debut defined the sound of American punk rock. Fast, loud, and subversively smart, these wise guys from Forest Hills, Queens fearlessly repurposed the cleanest '50s and '60s pop models—from girl groups to Beach Boys—for a disaffected new generation. From the shout-along choruses and needling fuzz guitars of "Blitzkrieg Bop" to the Lesley Gore-sweet "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend," these rip-roarin’ cuts still sound as fresh as if they were recorded today.

Punk Classic

The cover in itself is the defining moment of punk, of rock and roll, of music. Then there's the music,fast and anti-social with Joey's unique voice, Johnny's power chords and the energetic Tommy and Dee Dee. A timeless record!

The Ramones define Punk

Fast, angst ridden, the Ramones embodied Punk Rock, and spoke to a generation of people who didn't want the status quo anymore. They are basically saying, if you feel like you don't fit in, if you feel like your different, don't worry, neither do we,And there's nothing wrong with that! It's was Punk for Punks sake, it didn't have to be deep , it just had the antithesis of everything else.
