2016 Remastered Version. The Ramones' self-titled debut is a justifiably adored album - not just one of the best albums to come out of the initial New York punk explosion of the mid-'70s, but one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time. Ramones is one of those rare records where there is not a single weak or out-of-place song. Despite the lack of commercial success in its era, the importance of the album for the development of punk music was incredible, influencing many of the most well-known names that followed from The Damned, The Clash, Black Flag, Misfits, and later, Green Day.


"they had songs that just stuck in your head, just like a hammer they banged right into your brain." Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day)


"When that album came out, all the English groups tripled speed overnight. Two-minute-long songs, very fast." "Everybody went up three gears the day they got that first Ramones album. Punk rock—that rama-lama super fast stuff—is totally down to the Ramones. Bands were just playing in an MC5 groove until then." Tony James (Generation X)
