5.0 out of 5 stars You can't call yourself a punk until you've heard Ramones!!!, 27 May 2002
This review is from: Hey Ho Let's Go - Anthology (Audio CD)
I used to be a fan of modern, trendy pop-'punk', blink 182 et al (although dude ranch is a good album).
Then i heard Ramones.
As well as being the first true punk band, they are arguably the best, and this unbelievably value-for-money album shows this in the best possible way.
This one double-cd anthology, although only including songs from one band, catalogues the entire history of punk rock (the songs on this album range from early 70s to late 90s).
Without the ramones, there would be no green day, offspring, blink 182, new found glory, sum 41, nofx, rancid (i'm only allowed 1000 words but i could go on forever!!!
I don't want to use cliches but this is 'punk' with true 'rock n'roll' spirit and it certainly hasn't 'sold out'.
Just look through the booklet on the inside to see the Ramones phenomenal discography and some great punk rock nostalgic photos featuring the ramones with the sex pistols, the clash, iggy pop etc.
If you like any punk band at all, you will certainly like this cd as this is the big daddy of 'em all.
Buy this.
