I love this album and I never thought of it, that band was clearing its deck of unused songs etc but it makes sense.


Very cool clip of The Ramones with Robby Krieger, I have a feeling the lizard king would have approved of this cover version of one of the first songs he wrote.

The Ramones released Acid Eaters in 1994, featuring covers of 12 of the boys' favorite 60s surf and garage rock songs. The Ramones had always had a knack for cool cover songs - one had appeared on almost every studio album up to this point - and since cover albums were all the rage at this time, it made sense for them to jump on the bandwagon.

It's also been theorized that around this time Joey was beginning his struggle with the lymphoma that would eventually take his life, so perhaps an all-covers record was seen as a way to lighten his work load (i.e. he wouldn't have to worry about writing new songs). Whatever the reason, Acid Eaters is a fairly solid collection that features such old favorites as the Who's "Substitute" (which features Pete Townshend himself on backing vox), Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody To Love" (ex porn queen and would-be dance music diva Traci Lords, who was also signed to Radioactive Records at this time, appears on this track), Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" and Jan & Dean's "Surf City."

C.J. Ramone sings lead on three of the twelve tracks, including the piledriving cover of "Journey to the Center of the Mind" which opens the album.

I was lucky enough to catch my third (and final) Ramones show on the tour for this album, at the Academy Theatre in New York City. It was a great show and I'm glad that I was able to see them live one last time. Of course, nobody knew yet that the end was coming soon for the band. To Be Continued....

This is one Ramones disc I got early on. We got a copy sent to us at work and I kept it for myself. Between this covers disc and RamonesMania, I figured I had all the Ramones I would ever need for quite some time. Thanks mostly to this discography, I was mistaken.

Along with Townsend and Lords, I believe Sebastian Bach provided some background vocals on a track or 2, but I'll be damned if I ever heard his voice on there.

I remember Beavis & Butthead watching that video for 'Substitute'...

Beavis: Whoa!! It's Lemmy!! What's he doing in a Ramones video?
Butthead: He's Lemmy. He can show up in any damn video he wants to.

Laughing very hard I'm glad I'm not the only one who has no clue where Sebastian is on the record.

He gets thanked in the credits along w/Pete and Traci but it makes no mention of what track he appears on, and I have never been able to figure it out.

I've had Acid Eaters since it was a new release in 1994 and I gave up trying to pick him out ages ago. If anybody knows which track he's on, feel free to clue MG71 and I in, please!!

**EDIT** According to RollingStone.com, Baz does backups on the cover of "Out of Time" by the Stones. Ummm, OK. I'll take their word for it.

Hmmmm, I hear other vocals in the background, but hell, they could have been a janitor sweeping up the studio at the time for all we know. Someone as distinctive as Bach would have stood out more one would think.

Here's the Japan-only bonus track from Acid Eaters, 'Surfin Safari' by the Beach Boys...

I love this album, my favorite covers album by any band. It has something most of those cover albums are missing, the element of fun.

Good Lord, this thread has been needing an update for a while. Here goes...



All good things must come to an end, and in 1995, the Ramones announced that they were finally hanging up their leather jackets. Adios Amigos would be their fourteenth and final studio album, capping off a career that spanned 20 years and thousands of live gigs. It seemed ironic that the Ramones were calling it a day at a time where "pop punk" bands like Green Day, the Offspring and Rancid - who were all clearly spiritual descendents of the Ramones - were selling millions of records.

If you expected Adios Amigos to sound any different from the Ramones "business as usual" vibe since it's their farewell record, you'd be wrong. It kicks off with a cover of Tom Waits' "I Dont Want To Grow Up" and chugs through thirteen tracks of peppy punk rock. The tempo on most of these songs isn't quite as fast n' furious as on previous Ramones platters, which some chalked up to the band's advanced age at the time, but in all likelihood it was probably a concession to Joey's growing health problems.



As usual, C.J. picks up the lead vocals on the harder-edged tracks like "The Crusher," "Cretin Family" and "Scattergun," and his predecessor Dee Dee even makes a brief appearance (speaking German over a phone line) in the middle of the closing track "Born to Die In Berlin." The U.S. pressing of the album concludes with a hidden-track rendition of the "Spider-Man" cartoon theme, while the hidden track on the Japanese version is a cover of Motorhead's "R.A.M.O.N.E.S." with C.J. on lead vocals. (an alternate version of it with Joey on vox was included as a bonus studio cut on the posthumous Greatest Hits Live disc.)



"I Don't Want to Grow Up" had some minor success at radio and on the charts, but the album did not sell nearly as well as the band had hoped, especially in the then-current punk rock-friendly musical climate. After a headlining "Farewell Tour" of their own in 1995-96, the Ramones extended their long goodbye by jumping aboard the summer 1996 Lollapalooza lineup (where they played alongside Metallica, Soundgarden and Rancid). Their last ever headlining show took place on August 6, 1996 at the Palace in Hollywood (which was taped and later released as the live video/CD combo pack We're Outta Here!)

Adios Amigos may not rank as a Ramones classic but it didn't sh*t their bed either, the band exited the scene with their heads held high and left a legacy that can never be matched.

I saw The Ramones twice - the concerts were very exciting ! The crowd vibe of their shows was great - everyone just seemed †happy†happy, happy, happy - ( song Shock Treatment lyric ) and were being more silly than being cool - lights go down - 500- 700 people suddenly go nuts - smile, yelling and cheering - and out they come from the shadows - with their leather coats and ripped jeans - cheering and darkness - it takes about a minute or two before you hear the call " one, two, three, four " - then POW !! - you see New York's finest !
I read 6 - 7 books about them - very unusual foundations - and inner workings -
As a side note -
there is a movie out called " CBGB's "
youtube the trailer - it looks good !

This Saturday (the 23rd) will be the 40th anniversary of the release of the Ramones' debut album. Play it loud and bow down, mofo's.

What I wanna know is who did all the leads on their albums, surely it wasn't Johnny as he hated stuff like that. FF, did Johnny play any leads on the albums?

My understanding it was all Johnny, I know Robby Krieger of the Doors played a solo on their version of 'Take it as It Comes'...actually I am not even sure if that is true, I would have look at the 'Acid Eaters' album to see if I am correct.

Wow, I've never looked inside the booklets to find out either. I have all the deluxe editions so I might have to check too.

A safe guess would be producer Ed Stasium.
If not him, then probaby it was Mickey Leigh (Mitch Hyman, aka Joey's brother) as he toured a lot with the band.
Johnny kept Mickey out of sight/backstage, to play the lead guitar and additional guitar parts.

Not the first time a band member never played all of his parts in the studio, but fans thought he did (eg. Ace on some 1970s KISS albums).

I believe Mickey mentioned in his book "I Slept With Joey Ramone" that he occasionally "ghosted" some lead guitar parts/solos for Ramones recording sessions (cuz Johnny was pretty much a straight rhythm player) but I dunno about him being hidden backstage to sweeten the sound during live gigs. Most of the places the Ramones played weren't big enough to hide anybody. Someone would've noticed. Very Happy

I know Vernon Reid (Living Colour) does the guitar solo on the song "Cabbies on Crack" from the Mondo Bizarro album. I don't know if Robbie Krieger played on the studio version of the "Take It As It Comes" cover, but he played it live with the Ramones at least once:
