Ep. 50 - Let's rock 'n' roll with the Ramones

Ep. 50 - Let's rock 'n' roll with the Ramones

The Ramones' hugely important self-titled debut album was recorded 40 years ago this month.

Mixing stripped-down, loud, fast rock 'n' roll with catchy pop melodies and sometimes a twisted sense of humor, the Ramones launched a punk rock revolution and inspired countless bands. Much of today's rock can be traced back to the template the Ramones created.

On this Dad Rock episode, hosts Patrick Foster and Jim Lenahan are joined by Doug Hoepker to discuss the Ramones' career. Hoepker produces Little Records, a "podcast tribute to old-school college rock." His show's mixes cover alternative music from the late '70s through the early '90s.
