The Ramones Live in 1978: 26 Songs in 54 Minutes

Princes of New York punk, kings of CBG­B’s (take vir­tu­al tour here), and the only Amer­i­cans, then or now, who could pull off skin­ny jeans with impuni­ty, The Ramones were mas­ters of the short and sweet.  Here’s a record­ing of  a live 1978 set at the Pal­la­di­um in New York City: 26 songs, 54 min­utes, all set to clips from old sci-fi movies.
