Well Damone Ramone had a great post and left a message on my blog which turned my mind back to the Ramones.
During the seventies when music had gone a bit up its own backside, the energy and drive had gone as the sixties idyll died, the Ramones went back to basics. They returned to the idea of a high energy two and a half minute burst of exuberant Rock.
Rock was rebellion. Elvis and John Lennon were rebel punks. Punk was about rebellion.
The Ramones brought back excitement!
They’ll rock my day today!! I need something to liven me up!!
Gabba Gabba Hey!! So Hey Ho Let’s Go!!!
This’ll blow out the cobwebs!!
