Here’s a weird thing about me: When I’m having a particularly bad day, just about the only music I can listen to is Ozzy Osbourne or the Ramones. Go figure. Anyhow, I had a lousy day earlier in the week and started digging deeper into the Ramones’ less-than-classic later albums, and—though maybe this is an acquired taste—I think even the Ramones’ worst albums are still more fun than most bands’ best work. Here’s a taste of their 1992 release Mondo Bizarro.
FYI: This record features three songs written by Dee Dee Ramone. Dee Dee had departed the band some years earlier, but he wrote them a few songs to pay his friends back for bailing him out of jail.
