Seems like there is an ongoing flow of Ramones and Joey Ramone Tribute albums coming out since Joey’s passing. This album is mostly from European bands and some USA bands. Portions of the proceeds from this record will benefit the Joey Ramone Fund: In Memory Of Jeff Hyman” c/o New York Presterian Hospital Cornell Medical Center. Now onto the CD itself. The third track is a little weird. It’s a muzak track playing “I Wanna Be Sedated.” Actually a lot of these tracks sound like stupid Eurotrash music they play at dance clubs and raves. There are a few bands that actually cover the songs well but the rest of the CD is garbage. If I hear little electronic shit before the song starts, I skip it. I don’t know, I’m sure fans of the Ramones wouldn’t care for this album. Well except Europeans who listen to this type of shit.

Bottom Line: I certainly wouldn’t buy this.
Notable Tracks: The Dirty Scums’ “Ramones Medley,” 5¢ Deposit’s “We Want The Airwaves” Marky Ramone Group’s “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up,” Huntingtons’ “Life’s A Gas”
