The Ramones fourth album is another classic album. Tommy was replaced by Marky on the drums on this album, but Tommy was still around as the group's producer. The group's sound "matured" somewhat on this album, but still stayed true to their punk roots. Just about all the songs here are classics, with "I Wanna Be Sedated" being a classic among classics. The Ramones took the pop formula and crushed it with Johnny's down strokes and the sneering nasal charm of Joey's impassioned vocals. Honestly, if you don't like this band, I don't even...
