** Their latter-day albums with C. J. Ramone. It's more accurate to say that C. J. himself seems a bit of a BaseBreaker.
*** The same could be said for Richie Ramone.

BaseBreaker. The same could be said for Richie Ramone.



** Their version of "Surfin' Bird" was this for a long time, though it's up for debate now after the Trashmen's original [[ColbertBump went]] [[MemeticMutation memetic]] after an episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy.''
** It takes a truly mighty band to do this to Music/TheBeachBoys, and the Ramones did just that with "Do You Wanna Dance."



* DorkAge: The better part of the 80s, let's face it. They had their moments (most notably the minor classic ''Too Tough To Die'' from 1984) but fans are divided over [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks their heavily produced pop crossovers.]]



* EnsembleDarkHorse: Marky is better remembered as the Ramones' drummer than Tommy.

* EnsembleDarkHorse: Marky is better remembered as the Ramones' drummer than Tommy. Also, Dee Dee.
* FaceOfTheBand: Joey Ramone, the voice of generations of disaffected rebels, misfits, and losers.


Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: Sure, ''[[SelfTitledAlbum Ramones]]'' kickstarted punk almost by itself. But critics almost universally agree that ''Rocket To Russia'' was when the band really came into their own, and many prefer the latter album.

* {{Narm}}: Punk rocker Dee Dee Ramone becomes rapper Dee Dee King. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAl-xzN8e-M Hear for yourself Dee Dee's interpretation of hip hop.]] The one album under the Dee Dee King monicker, ''Standing In The Spotlight'' (subtle) was a critical and commercial dud.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: As with a lot of other punk bands, suffers from this in spades.

After all manner of harder, faster styles (HardcorePunk for instance) have made their presence known in the ensuing decades, some people may find the early Ramones albums to be a little slow, and would have trouble appreciating how absolutely blistering they would've sounded to listeners in the 70s.

* BaseBreaker: ''Music/EndOfTheCentury,'' produced by no less than Phil Spector and presenting a somewhat LighterAndSofter Ramones.

* ''Too Tough To Die''. The title is very tragic because, out of the four members who performed on the album, only drummer Richie Ramone is still alive.

* MagnumOpus: Usually ''Music/{{Ramones}}'', though ''Music/RocketToRussia'' and ''Music/LeaveHome'' also are strong contenders.

** The music video of "Pet Sematary" features the band at a cemetery, performing to which a ''tombstone'' is put ontop of them as they're technically buried alive. This is ''worse'' now that all Joey, Johnny, and Dee Dee Ramone are gone.
