Product Description

Amazon.ca

It was inevitable that a glut of Ramones tribute albums would follow the passing of Joey and Dee Dee Ramone. The 17-song-strong We're a Happy Family thankfully escapes the dubious tribute-album ghetto. It's no surprise that Ramones descendents like Green Day, Rancid, and the Offspring stick close to the tired and true, while headbanger James Hetfield makes "53rd & 3rd" sound like a Metallica song. But the standouts on the disc are the efforts where artists go off the rails. Pete Yorn turns in a yearning version of "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend," while Tom Waits goes the ghoulish route on "The Return of Jackie and Judy." Kiss get the best-in-show nod for their anthemic "Do You Remember Rock & Roll Radio," which is odd given that the Ramones were formed ostensibly as a reaction against arena rockers like Kiss. Don't miss the final hidden track, a scary gem by the Chili Peppers' John Frusciante. --Jaan Uhelszki

Some artists stay true to the original punk sound, while others rework the tracks to fit their style. Some of the reworked tracks are The Red Hot Chili Peppers Latin-themed, �Havana Affair�, Rob Zombie�s guitar heavy, electronic infused �Blitzkrieg Bop�, U2�s soft-pop version of �Beat on the Brat�, and Marilyn Manson�s scary �The KKK Took My Baby Away�. You�d swear that Manson wrote. The Pretenders turn �Something to Believe In� into a ballad, and there are no words to describe what Tom Waits did to �Return of Jackie and Judy�.
Metallica�s cover of �53rd & 3rd� sounds more like the original. It�s clear that the bay-area thrashers were influenced by The Ramones. The contributing punk bands The Offspring, Rancid, and Green Day stayed true to the Ramones� raw sound, but added their unique twist to it. Instead of consuming it and making it their own, Kiss decided to keep �Do You remember Rock n Roll Radio� the same. Perhaps the most surprising tracks were the two contributed by Eddie Vedder and Zeke. Who would have thought that one of the leaders of grunge would have so much �punk� in him? �I believe in Miracles� is heavy and Eddie delivers like he was one of The Ramones. Equally impressive is Vedder�s version of �Daytime Dilemma (Dangers of Love)�.
Bottom Line:
Only three punk bands on a tribute to The Ramones? Come on! That aside, the tribute CD isn�t bad, but it isn�t The Ramones, and it certainly isn�t punk rock.

I had high expectations for this one. I am a big Ramones fan (they DID invent punk, after all), and I figured, with artists like Rob Zombie, how could I go wrong?
I was dissapointed, to say the least. The RHCP cover of "Havana Affair" is great. Eddie Vedder's "I Believe In Miracles" cover is great. Green Day and the Offspring are good, and U2 is okay. But other than that, it's really not worth having, and just plain flat out boring. (But the aforementioned songs justify my three-star rating.) I like White/Rob Zombie, but he just butchered "Blitzkrieg Bop", and his cover bites. Metallica... it would've been a good cover if it were done 20 years ago, but now it's just lame. The rest didn't even begin to capture my interest.
I recommend just burning it. Luckily, that's what a friend did for me, and I didn't pay a cent. After all, there ARE still a few good songs on here. But overall, I think this was rushed, and definitely not up to par with what it should've been.
Now click "Not Helpful"...that's it...gooooood boy.

I think Rob Zombie was in charge of this album. Keep in mind that this "tribute" is clearly a commercial venture. Obviously there are tons of actual punk bands that would love to cover the Ramones, but only major label acts are found here. Also, most punk rockers would probably find the overly patriotic cover appalling.
1. Havana Affair - Red Hot Chili Peppers = Excellent job by the Peppers.
2. Blitzkrieg Bop - Rob Zombie = This song is terrible. It's discrace and I skip over it every time. Rob Zombie is trash without White Zombie and this cover is horrible.
3. I Believe In Miracles - Eddie Vedder & Zeke = Pretty dern good.
4. 53rd & 3rd - Metallica = I friggin hate Metallica these days, but this track is actually pretty good.
5. Beat On The Brat - U2 = Awesome, sounds alot like the original.

6. Do You Remember Rock 'N' Roll Radio - Kiss = Excellent!

7. The KKK Took My Baby Away - Marilyn Manson = This is another discrace. He took the lyrics and turned it into a whiney goth song. Keep in mind that I actually like Manson.

8. I Just Wanna Have Something To Do - Garbage = Great cover!

9. Outsider - Green Day = Another Great cover.
10. Something To Believe In - The Pretenders = Pretty bad.

11. Sheena Is A Punk Rocker - Rancid = Awesome.
12. I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend - Pete Yorn = Pretty good, but what is this guy doin' on here?

13. I Wanna Be Sedated - The Offspring = A nice cover.
The rest seems pretty lame and I usually just skip over it.
There should be another tribute to the ramones by good bands that isn't for commercial reasons.

After reading alot of the reviews i've come to the conclusion that alot of people are close minded. Many people are complaining that there are no punk acts (well Rancid and Green Day are on here). Of course there aren't! This is a major label tribute album. Rob zombie produced this with Johnny Ramone and Marky Ramone so he had their blessing. I also have read that oh Joey and Dee Dee are spinning in their graves and hate bands like U2. I guess you didn't know that the LAST SONG Joey was listening to as he passed away was U2's In A Little While and said they were one of his favorite bands. Joey had a open mind as do alot of punk bands. The Ramones impact was just felt by the underground punk scene but worldwide. They were on MTV, they played huge radio station festivals, they played Lollapalooza, they were on a major label since album #1. The Ramones are known and loved by many. Pearl Jam has been covering their songs live for a while, the Chili Peppers were covering Havana Affair for a while, U2 played I Remember You at almost every show after Joey passed away. They actually paid more respect to Joey then he got from the punk community.
As for the tribute album...yes it's not that great but of course it wouldn't sound as amazing as the original stuff. The Clash's Burning London tribute failed as well to capture the true sound of the Clash and this album did as well. It seems like bands tried to hard to make a proper tribute when it's ironic because the bands they are paying tribute too breezed through the originals and didn't care about taking their time. Simple, quick, easy and powerful.
There are a few standout tracks on here. I love Kiss' cover, the RHCP and John Frusciante covers (i'm a huge RHCP btw.). I love Rancid but their cover just doesn't do it for me.
