    I love the Clash but never listened to much Ramones. I have however been hired to play a set of Ramones covers for a punk rock Halloween show in October. So I'll let you know what I think in a few weeks after I learn the set. :p One thing I've decided already, though - I'm playing my Hello Kitty Strat at this show.

    Its a big Ya from me. Was a big fan of punk in my teens ['77 onwards] The Ramones were a big influence on a lot of UK punk bands - like early Undertones etc - 3 minute power punk

    I saw The Ramones, Debbie Harry and Tom Tom Club all play the same show in ~1990. I mainly went to see Debbie Harry but came away a HUGE Ramones fan.

    As @IronSchef pointed out earlier, this tune probably best represents them:

    I have a ticket stub informing me that I saw them back in the early 80s but I'm afraid I can conjur up no shred of memory of the show...:(...I wonder why...:whistling::oops:

    If you were me, then I have your answer...;)

    On a similar note, I have receipts for a couple Electro-Harmonix pedals I bought back then and not only do I have no idea what happened to them, I don't even remember ever using them either...:confused:

    I know I heard that in decades past...but as this thread is discussing, open ears and minds.

    Frankly, that's old-school garage band rock.

    Simple, loud, clear, direct, no intellectual pretense, but not stupid either...in the 60's this was what we called garage band music.

    I guess when bands cut their hair and wore torn clothes, safety pins, etc. they became "punk".

    If I recall, the Police had to sort of fake looking like punks so as to sell their very musically sophisticated carefully crafted music.

    https://www.udiscovermusic.com/news/stewart-copeland-police-interview/

    "
    Having emerged on the scene during the height of punk in the UK, Copeland says the band’s experience with the scene was a double-edged sword.

    “Punk had opened people’s minds to the idea that you don’t have to sound like ELO, ABBA or any of the huge commercial successful acts of the day,” he says. adding that The Police were “reviled as fakes in the punk world for capitalising on our ‘superior musicality’ thanks to our three to four extra years of musical experience. All the other punk bands didn’t even know how to get to the gig.”"

    I'm more of a Joe Strummer fan myself.

    Now that's artistic commitment!
    Plus a testament to artistic concept.

    When it comes to Yoko, I don't got any hate against her. I'll have to confess to myself that I just don't understand her art, some people seem to do so but I'm not one of those.

    No man understands a deep book until he has seen and lived at least part of its contents.” -Ezra Pound

    I guess it's something along those lines maybe, maybe I appreciate and understand art that reflect something within myself, something that I have been through.

    Oh, hell yeah! I almost got booted out of school in '78 for wearing a New York Dolls t shirt. Punk was IT for me!

    She was associated with the avante-garde art scene way before she even met John.
