iTunes Review

By the '90s, The Ramones were veterans on the scene. Their live concerts were their bread and butter while new albums were met with lower expectations. The band members had always been huge fans of rock ‘n’ roll, having grown up with the music playing on their AM radios. So when The Ramones decided to record an album of covers there was plenty of material to choose from. They decided to largely focus on songs from the psychedelic era—hence Acid Eaters. It’s an interesting idea, but the concept broke down somewhat when they went in to do it; the songs that made the album were mostly more of a garage/punk sound. So while The Amboy Dukes’ “Journey to the Center of the Mind” was too complex to meld with The Ramones' approach, The Who’s “Substitute,” Jefferson Airplane’s “Somebody to Love,” The Animals’ “When I Was Young," and The Troggs’ “I Can’t Control Myself” ended up coming closest to the band’s own music.

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,...
