19 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

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."

Austerity & Clarity

Stripped down, balls to the wall & mega influential. It's the greatest punk album ever by the greatest punk band ever. Real punk ethos, not a manufactured boy-band rip-off. Cut your teeth here.
