For those of you who have never heard of the Ramones then you would probably never have heard any of these songs on the radio as the band never really had any 'hits', though you would be hard pressed to find a band that had more influence over as many future artists/bands as the Ramones. The Ramones are truly the grandfathers of punk rock as they had hits in the mid 70s before the Sex Pistols even started recording. They continued for almost 30 years, until the untimely deaths of a couple of the Ramone brothers, to represent the kind of music that was popular in the underground. There are 20 tracks on the album were recorded between 1976 and 1995 including their most famous song, "I Want To Be Sedated". Again for those of you who are not too familiar with the Ramones don't be scared off by the label of punk rock as their music rocked hard, but still managed to have plenty of melody.
