"As a joke,when people would squish up their faces and ask me"what do the Ramones sound like,"I would answer"well,they're kinda like the satanic Beach Boys."Yes a joke,but it got the point across to everyone that they're really not like anyone,but it seems that everyone wants to sound like THEM.How craphole bands like Blink 182 and Good Charlotte can sell millions of albums and live in mansions and the Ramones ate dogfood is just further testament to the vast ignorance of the record buying public and the futility of believing in a just and loving god.From the beginning of their career to the end of it,The Ramones were the seminal punk rock group.If you haven't heard The Ramones,you have never,repeat,never heard true punk rock.This is about as close as any newbie will ever be to seeing them live,and that's a shame.The songs are fast,the audience is loud,and the setlist is phenomenal.There's no other band in the world that could plow through that many songs in 65 minutes without an encore.To be honest,The Ramones never once needed an encore to please their fans.This is in my opinion the greatest and truest live album ever recorded,a real treat for the fans,and one of the rare occasions it wasn't just a marketing ploy to further gouge the public at large for a greater profit margin.This is honesty people.Raw and angry sounding,this was the locomotive coming at you full force for the absolute love of their fans.A true gem of an album,Loco Live oughta please even the most jaded and arrogant among you."
