Recommended discography of The Ramones

With a twenty-year career, I will say that these are the albums that I have liked the most by Ramones (in no order of relevance):

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

Anyway, there are fourteen other Ramones records to wind it up. This selection aims to indicate his approaches to punk from various stages: from the beginning, then the beginning of the eighties, later the hardcore of the end of that decade and finally the best produced in the nineties.
