Ever wondered what made the leather jacket donning boys of the Ramones famous in the music scene? Take a dive into a mosh pit of stripped rock and punk in this week’s instalment of PYHOF.
Maybe it’s all about the way they own the stage or the way they casually throw in wetsuit-tight motorcycle jackets into their daily wardrobe or maybe the way they stripped rock and roll and added punk influences to the mix that made the Ramones such a hit. Or, it could just be all of those things and more.
The Ramones’ distinct short and sweet style of music made them one of the world’s best-loved punk acts up to now. Joey, Marky, Dee Dee and Johnny added additional rips to countless jeans during the punk heyday at CBGB and other establishments. Aside from the raw approach that the Ramones applied to their music, their simple songs made memorable hits like “I Wanna Be Sedated” and “Blitzkrieg Bop.”
Everything that the Ramones did was just unadulterated punk rock – heads shaking and nodding and arms flailing and legs kicking. And maybe that’s one of the things that makes the name Ramones synonymous to great punk music.
This week’s instalment of PYHOF brings you a mix of everything from punk, blues, rock and roll, and maybe a little bit of everything in between that will hit nothing but the sweet notes. Plug those headphones in and take dive.
