Band: The Ramones

Postby jupiter on Tue Nov 25, 2003 11:39 am

The tribute album is the only piece of crap with a Ramones stamp on it.

(Rob Zombie does his rendition of Blitzkreig Bop, Bono? Anthony Kedis? Come on!! :x )

I'm going to catch the wrath here, but CRAP. Boring. Ho hum. Fun to play, though.

The Ramones.....okay, I get the point but the majority I've heard is just fast '50's style songs.

There's definitely two schools of barre chord punk - one is Ramones, the other is Pistols. I like the Pistols.

Ramones = CRAP

You seem to say this as if it's a bad thing.

The song "today your love, tomorrow the world" ALONE makes this one a no-brainer, folks.
But I digress. Please continue with the squirrel circuit semantic debate.

Not unlike AC/DC, they have one song but it's a good one. They played it well and had a good run.

Ok, seriously...
I'd like to remind you of this quote in regards to Mr Bungle (whew, that is a difficult name to even write.)

"There's kind of a sunny LA feel but with these bizarre tonalities and abrupt changes. They pull it off live, too. Their encore of "Everybody's Workin' For The Weekend" was spot-on."

The Ramones-- certainly not crap.
Dylan, Dylan, Dylan embrace the rock. Let go of the process.
looking forward to new projects by peter sotos, dr kay redfield jamison, lauren weedman, daido moriyama, loretta lux, jack mcbrayer, kim deal, rory kennedy, alex prager, jen davis, bracha l ettinger, martha plimpton, nina nastasia, matt besser

I like a good, mutually respectful marriage of rock and process.

Now you listen here, Heather, I just recently got into the Rolling Stones, man! How ya like me now? I really love AC/DC. Led Zeppelin amazes me every time I hear them. "Sonic Reducer", awesome song. I like classic rock radio. I'm sure you remember my homage to "Radar Love"?

I like the rock. I like it to be exciting. The Ramones are not that.

I started listening to them when I was 9 and if I make it to 90 I still will. Their first couple albums never get old to me. There are bits and pieces of their later stuff that I enjoy and some that is kinda weak.

BUT THEY ARE THE FUCKING RAMONES AND THEY ARE NOT CRAP.

The Ramones are a band I don't listen to very often. When I do listen to them, there is nothing else that will do the job. After twenty minutes I'm usually Ramoned out for another six months or so.

They're just one of those bands that aren't crap. It would be too sad, this already sad world, if The Ramones were crap. So they just can't be.

Europe, now there's a crap band.
Back off man, I'm a scientist.

Rocket to Russia is my personal fav.

I really love the whole all downstroked, intense barre chord attack.

Not Crap.

In a very real (if often indirect) way, the Ramones made most of the bands discussed on this board possible. And if you can't enjoy those first four albums (and/or the first live album, It's Alive), I really don't trust you ... or at very least I think you don't really understand this whole rock and roll thing.

Not Crap, which should go without saying.

Couldn't have said it better myself. If someone can't see how the Ramones are brutally NOT CRAP, they should have their instruments taken from them and disposed of.

If you think that The Ramones are crap then you do not understand rock & roll and are more likely aligned with the music punk was supposed to supplant, which is what I've suspected of most so called "post-rock" from the beginning--that it's closer to Pink Floyd than punk. What makes The Ramones so great--one of the things--is that they were aware of their "dumbness" without being self-conscious about it, which allowed them to seem "pure" even as they recycled so much pop culture detritus. They are one of the world's few truly ironic bands, as opposed to the evasive sarcasm that passes for irony these days; they were capable of passionately meaning it and seeing its absurdity (whatever it was) simultaneously. They were brilliant, and I love them, and Dee Dee Ramone is the punkest motherfucker who ever lived.

Thank you.

I am 43 years old. I can think of everything I've done and experienced of significance in the last 27 of those 43 years. I can look around myself in a circle, run up and down the stairs and into every room in the building, pointing to anything I find there. I can think of almost everyone I know or have known since I was a teenager -- certainly all my close friends.

I owe all of that to the Ramones.
