The Ramones in The Guardian

There is a pretty good article in The Guardian about the re-issue of the first Ramones album.

Also, a link in that article goes to this even better article:

"They were the smartest dumb band you ever heard."

That's Handsome Dick Manitoba of The Dictators. There is also commentary by Paul Cook (Sex Pistols), the lead singer of Penetration, Suicide, and the Buzzcocks.

The Dickies - Manny Moe & Jack

Nothing says "anti-commercial" like SoCal punk.

Or maybe not. Here is the incredibly catchy song "Manny Moe & Jack" by The Dickies. Manny Moe and Jack? You know, the Pep Boys.

It's the best commercial tune since, oh, Mars Bars by The Undertones.
