I won't let them die. None of us should.

I've been having a long, long love affair with NYC's finest ever band (world's finest ever band?)...I delved further into nostalgia this afternoon, reminded me once again how much shit there's out there these days.

I love the Ramones.

I remember seeing someone post about how a very successful band uses the same chords in every song (which is completely untrue BTW) yet loves a band with zero musical talent who took a lot of inspiration from the Bay City Rollers according to their own management.

Funny old world.Nice T-shirt.Wank band.

Round and about
Good lad Mr T.

Ramones were the band to end all bands, the beginning and end of rock and roll. Once you had seen them live that was it for any other band.

And when you have understood the Ramones there is nowhere else to go. They are the PhD of rock music. People who don't like the Ramones are suspect.

Pinhead, you speak a million truths. I was fortunate to see them when I was 15 at Manchester Academy. I was front row. I've seen a fuckload of bands and no-one came close to them.

I don't think there's a debut album that's as raw and unpolished as Ramones - Ramones. It's a masterpiece.

My only regret, Bonzo, is that I only got to see them once.

Crrrrrreeeeeeeeeeettttttttiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnn, Crrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetttttttttttttttttttttttttinnnnnnnnnnn.

There's no stoppin' the cretins from hoppin'
You gotta keep it beatin'
For all the hoppin' cretins

Cretin! Cretin!

I'm gonna go for a whirl with my cretin girl
My feet won't stop
Doin' the Cretin Hop

Cretin! Cretin!

1-2-3-4
Cretins wanna hop some more
4-5-6-7
All good cretins go to heaven

Meh-tier band, never got the hype. Reminds me of 13 year old wearing Ramones t-shirts
If you don't get the hype you probably don't have their first three albums, or anything after, they defined punk in one fell swoop...that first album.
