Publisher's Summary

What could be more punk rock than a band that never changed, a band that for decades punched out three-minute powerhouses in the style that made them famous? The Ramones repetition and attitude inspired a genre, and Ramones set its tone. Nicholas Rombes examines punk history, with the recording of Ramones at its core, in this inspiring and thoroughly researched justification of his obsession with the album.
Rock on: listen to more of the 33 1/3 series.

Not good at all.

The first 20 minutes is just a definition of the word PUNK!!! Also every critic, author and the occasional fan is quoted as to the meaning of PUNK. This reminds me of a badly done college essay where a student has to write a certain amount of words, needlessly adding crap just to get the amount of words in. Just really poorly done and a waste of money.

Hey Ho!

Nicely researched and told story on the background of the most seminal album of all time.
