The Ramones

One of the most quintessential punk bands, The Ramones, is getting the full cinematic treatment via one of the most quintessential and metaphorical punk filmmakers, Martin Scorsese.

Still in its infancy, the project, which won’t even start until Scorsese has finished his current gig helming the upcoming film Silence, hasn’t even hired a writer on board yet, but has the full cooperation of the Ramones estate, according to The Wrap. The Ramones estate is planning a big celebration in 2016 to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the band’s 1976 landmark debut album, a record that reshaped the entire musical game, and almost singlehandedly created a new revolution in the sonic genre with its advent of punk. Peaking in the late 1970s, The Ramones released scores of records from 1976 to the mid 1990s, all with high energy and high decibel levels, lean and muscular tunes that are memorable and full of attitude of every stripe. Going through various incarnations since its inception, the band unfortunately was in the limelight earlier this year with the death of the original drummer Tommy Ramone, who had been the last remaining member of the original lineup.

The Ramones Greatest Hits

As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deals for August 2012, The RamonesGreatest Hits is on sale for only $5. If you would like a physical copy of The Ramones Greatest Hits, the CD is available for only $7.60.

Young or old, no matter who you are, you’ve no doubt bopped your noggin to the beat of a Ramones tune at least once in your life. It’s an autonomic reaction to the infectious beat created by a ragtag group of ne’er-do-wells sporting matching black hair, who sprung up out of Forest Hills, Queens, NYC in 1974 as a reaction to the lame pop music of the times. They had no particular message, no impressive musical ability – just the doo-wop velvet voice of Joey Ramone and four simple chords that literally anyone can play all sped up in 4/4 time by a simple backbeat and hard driving bass. Greatest Hits is an essential album for everyone’s collection and includes such popular songs as “Blitzkrieg Bop,” “Rockaway Beach,” and “Rock ‘N’ Roll High School.” If you don’t already own at least one of the 14 studio albums The Ramones recorded over the 21 years when they were an active touring band, then you must buy Greatest Hits right now. (Today actually marks the 16th anniversary of the band’s final performance together.)

Browse all 1,000 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as several albums on sale this week for only $2.99 each.
