hahahaha i have a mate who LOVES the ramones and used to drive us all mad by insisting we play them all bluddy night.
just made me kind of get really sick of them actually.

I hate all the modern bands theyve spawned, or supposedly spawned (when the dumbass bands like the datsuns decided to switch their influences to something cooler - than pearl jam and the smashing pumpkins, in thier case) and all those punky rioty "grrl" crap if they sound ramonesy I'll probably be guaranteed to hate their stupid redundant poseurdom

Hey five minutes ago me and Hamish saw "the Datsuns" on campus at Otago uni, they came along to the nice place we were sitting and someone set up a camera to interview them or whatver. I said "hey there's Trinket"(their former band name back when they were less rock and more sensitive, or something) but I didn't say it very loud. They all have the same shoulder length hair oh how I hate them but they'd probably enjoy it if somebody actively dislike them

I can't stand the Datsuns. "Super Gyration, rock and roll generation" whatever this generation is the least rock n roll ever. But hey it rhymes.

Elisabeth (Elisabeth), Tuesday, 8 October 2002 05:36 (twenty-one years ago) link

But they want it to be the rock'n'roll generation! and it soon will be, that type of rock'n'roll anyway...you know: jean jackets and cool sneakers and guitars and girls and cars

thread hijack!

Jonathon I would give you a 6pack of underpants for some Ramones records. I don't actually hate the Ramones. Someone start another thread of something I can hate (note: I do not hate Dunedin)

spectra, Tuesday, 8 October 2002 05:46 (twenty-one years ago) link

Start a 'spectra hates the datsuns' thread. personally i am in awe of Dolf's lustrous hair.

petra jane (petra jane), Tuesday, 8 October 2002 07:16 (twenty-one years ago) link

I'd join in on that. I'd also like more Ramones records.

i hate the ramones. they're super boring.

di smith (lucylurex), Monday, 28 October 2002 01:03 (twenty-one years ago) link

i love the ramones, they one of the (approx) 1 best rock'n'roll bands ever. just so's you know di isnt speaking for the entire International Telepaths organisation there. di how can you like the buzzcocks, the monkees but NOT the Ramones? that's fuckin goofy.

unknown or illegal user (doorag), Monday, 28 October 2002 03:20 (twenty-one years ago) link

Man, I like the Buzzcocks fine but the Ramones are a LOT better. To me, anyway. The Monkees are GREAT but no Ramones either. The Ramones DID get pretty shitty after say, "End of the Century" though did'nt they?

Andrew Thames (Andrew Thames), Monday, 28 October 2002 03:22 (twenty-one years ago) link

I have to be in the right mood for the Ramones, then I really like them. It took me ages to get a Ramones LP cos I was always hearing them at other peoples houses so I didn't really need to get one.

Elisabeth (Elisabeth), Monday, 28 October 2002 03:25 (twenty-one years ago) link

Yeah you can't just stick the Ramones on any old time of the day.

Andrew Thames (Andrew Thames), Monday, 28 October 2002 03:30 (twenty-one years ago) link

i've never felt inspired by them, i've never felt as though they had anything quality to offer me. the buzzcocks and the monkees both had great melodies and they were harmonically more innaresting. while i am of the opinion that one does not have to be a guitar whizz to be a musician, one has to do a lot more than three chord rah rah to interest me. - hey - so you say - but don't you like riot grrrl? - and the answer is yes i do but i am selective about it and mostly only retain interest in a band if they have the same positives i already listed of the monkees and the buzzcocks. i don't like the sex pistols either. so sue me.

di smith (lucylurex), Monday, 28 October 2002 03:55 (twenty-one years ago) link

oh and please don't tell me that the three chord rah rah is *the point* of the ramones, cos that does not seem to sway me. its one of those things like ess-kay was saying on the s-k thread about how they are highly recommended so i have given them a chance, but i guess they just don't speak to me.

di smith (lucylurex), Monday, 28 October 2002 03:59 (twenty-one years ago) link

Now I found out that you guys don't like the Ramones eitheir! No wonder you like Rubicon more than the Datsuns. The Ramones are nothing like the Buzzcocks or the Monkees, and I say that as a Monkees fan. The Ramones are evil wits, like poets.

treena meldicott, Tuesday, 29 October 2002 04:43 (twenty-one years ago) link

treena, on behalf of all of I Hate Everything i wld like to SINCERELY and HUMBLY apologise for our wanton demonstrations of opinions that differ from your own. It was grossly insensitive, cruel and - as you pointed out so eloquently on the Davy Jones thread - stupid of us and it won't happen again, ever. Please accept a gift-hamper of tripe and marzipan animals as a token of our most abashed gratutide.

petra jane (petra jane), Tuesday, 29 October 2002 05:23 (twenty-one years ago) link

Dude, get over it! I don't believe anyone said they liked Rubicon, just that they couldn't see why the Datsuns were any better. Also not everyone here dislikes the Ramones, and who cares if they do. And finally Davy Jones' really can't dance! And I say that as a Monkees fan! For real!

there's a girl in my class i really don't like, who wears a ramones t-shirt. and i know she thinks she's cool for it... because ive NEVER worn a band t-shirt thinking i'm cool! (pah)

rebekah (rebekah), Thursday, 10 April 2003 17:12 (twenty years ago) link

i don't think i hate the ramones anymore.

di smith (lucylurex), Thursday, 10 April 2003 22:31 (twenty years ago) link

your puny lawyers don't scare me. I AM THE LAW.

I AM GARY NUMAN. Seriously, I did a test that said I was, and now that I have black hair I can rock the Telekon look. Having said that, the Ramones did namecheck T.Rex in song and there is a pic of them hanging out with his Bolanness in the T.Rex book Born To Boogie.

Damian (Damian), Friday, 11 April 2003 09:58 (twenty years ago) link

So Di needs the Oakey haircut, right?

Andrew Thames (Andrew Thames), Friday, 11 April 2003 10:02 (twenty years ago) link

hey thats a coincidence, the human league namecheck the ramones in a song. i am envious that damian knows more about marc than i do. yeah i could rock the oakey haircut.

di smith (lucylurex), Friday, 11 April 2003 10:11 (twenty years ago) link

They leave out TOMMY tho I think he might have left by then. He was the smart one.

Andrew Thames (Andrew Thames), Friday, 11 April 2003 10:16 (twenty years ago) link

Neil from the Young Ones had the Oakey haircut when he joined the police. But why did they leave out Tommy? Lack of space, I guess.

The Ramones mostly bore me but I can't imagine outright hating them.
