If you think of the Ramones as loud and stupid, you're only half right. By their 2,263rd and final concert in 1996, these punk forefathers had outsmarted and outlasted most of their detractors. And better yet, ever since they rocketed out of Queens in 1974, the Ramones have inspired countless kids worldwide to pick up guitars and rock. Bringing a bubblegum sensibility to the fast-and-hard, their primal sound is considered a blueprint for all things resembling snotty, catchy, ear-bleeding punk rock. This slightly poppier follow-up to the Ramones' astounding debut is pretty much more of the same... and that's a good thing. Includes the original 15 songs, plus 16 tracks recorded live at L.A.'s Roxy in '76.
