Recommended albums by The Ramones

The Ramones have released twenty albums over their entire twenty-year career. Below you can find a personal selection of my favorite albums from this band, which is entirely personal and has no specific order of relevance.

  • Ramones (1976)
  • Road to Ruin (1978)
  • Pleasant Dreams (1981)
  • Too Tough to Die (1984)
  • Mondo Bizarro (1992)
  • ¡Adiós Amigos! (1995)

With this short album selection I am trying to be indicative of some of the shifts in The Ramones’ music style through the years. At their beginnings, their sound was quite simple and raw, and then when the eighties came they try to experiment with a more complex and pop-oriented approach to their music. The last part of their eighties output sounds reminiscent of hardcore punk and their nineties albums certainly sound quite loud and polished in terms of production.
