Ramones Kiss Ass

Well, it’s pretty obvious that I’m a Ramones Maniac. And this post is dedicated to the “greatest band” in the world. You can argue with me all day but that thing will stay. Any band Motorhead wrote a song for deserves this title.

On SPIN magazine’s February 2002 issue. The magazine featured “The 50 Greatest Bands”. Of course, the Beatles got the top spot, but surprisingly, the Number 2 spot went to Ramones (they’re still the greatest in my book). Here’s the complete write up of the Ramones:

No. 2 Ramones

“Punk exists because of the false assumption that the Ramones can be imitated. “1-2-3-4!” Three chords. “Second verse, same as the first.” Technically speaking, it’s simple. Legend has it that in every city where the Ramones played in support of their 1976 debut, a handful of punk kids started up bands, thinking that they could do it, too. But the Ramones’ loud-fast style masked a pop genius. Slow their tempos, and you’ve got Beach Boys melodies. Replace lyrics about sniffin’ glue and eating refried beans, and you’ve got the Ronettes. Give everyone matching leather jackets, and you’ve got the punk rock Beatles. Just four lads from Queens who birthed thousands of bands, then blew each one away. Like sharks, they didn’t evolve – they didn’t need to.” – Marc Spitz
By the way, the Ramones' complete discography is posted over at Punch Drunk, a great post from a great blog! Check it out!
