In conclusion, I still like them.
'Have the Rolling Stones killed'
The Ramones are the most conceptually perfect rock & roll band that ever existed. I think I would have liked them even if every one of their songs was rubbish, which is far from the case. I probably listened to them more than any other band when I was a teenager so I have no sense of perspective, but if there was one band I would have liked to have been in, it would have been that one in the CBGBs years leading up to their first record.
No, they're shit.
Also shit: The Beach Boys.
I don't like The Clash.
That influenced lots of people. Come to think of it there's a number of bands like that, though bands like The Ramones and The Sex Pistols are prime examples.
aren't that great.
aren't so great.
I'm a retard. I ^This'd my own comment too. I am a fiend
Rock n Roll High School
What's yr point?
rock rock rockaway beach...
time has come today, hey...
dude, how can you not like the ramones. what do you do in your spare time? feeding cigarettes stubs to your hamster?
Road To Ruin FTW.
their first album is one of the greatest of all time
to the point that they started to not bother disguising the fact.
Evidence: Psycho Family is a slightly rewritten Psycho Therapy.
The Law of Diminishing Returns hits the Ramones hard.
Still, without the Ramones, we would probably not have had Screeching Weasel or the Vindictives. Not in the same way.
So what if they repeated themselves after that?
And repetitive. And dull.
The first album /is/ a classic though.
they are no use to anyone
Ramones & Sex Pistols = good
you are wrong.
