Ramones - Road To Ruin LP

8th Records

The Ramones ignited the punk-rock movement with their eponymous 1976 debut, revitalizing rock and roll at one of its lowest ebbs with attitude, energy and a loud, fast new sound. By cutting music down to its bare essentials – four chords; a simple, catchy melody; a sped up tempo and irresistibly inane lyrics, the Ramones blazed the trail for thousands of bands that followed, influencing everyone from The Clash and The Sex Pistols to Green Day and The Offspring. The final Ramones LP of the '70s and fourth overall, Road To Ruin was their first to feature a three-minute-plus song, "I Wanted Everything." The album also contains "I Wanna Be Sedated," perhaps the best-known Ramones track ever and their signature cover of "Needles & Pins."
