    It took four Queens punks who could barely string together four chords to revitalize American rock & roll. The Ramones torpedoed self-important '70s arena-rock, stripping it down to its foundations. Thanks to their pop smarts, they became the nation's favorite and perhaps most influential punk rock outfit.
    The Ramones' music has always echoed a Phil Spector-esque sense of melodic structure. HEY HO LET'S GO! is a delirious, nonstop rush of barreling drums and guitars topped with bubblegum melodies. The emphasis is on the band's seminal '70s output. "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Rockaway Beach," "Teenage Lobotomy," and "I Wanna Be Sedated" whiz past like no-frills Lear jets. The Ramones' power lies in their simplicity; you won't even find a guitar solo here. The band's post-'70s output is a mixed bag, but the second disc includes a sampling of its brighter moments. To the Ramones credit, they held on to their ideals and never played unplugged, released a concept album, or recorded a song that outstayed its welcome.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (7/23/99, p.69) - "...the great early stuff on the first CD hits so straight, deep, and true, it'd be churlish to judge this well-intentioned collection too harshly..." - Rating: B
    Q (5/02 SE, p.140) - Included in Q's "100 Best Punk Albums".
    Q (11/99, p.154) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...essential to anyone who wants a better, less pointless life, yet can't be bothered buying five Ramones albums..."
    Alternative Press (9/99, p.110) - 4 out of 5 - "...overall this is a set that should please both hardcore fans and wannabe new-school punks."
    Mojo (Publisher) (1/00, p.31) - Included in Mojo Magazine's "Best Boxed Sets" of 1999.
