John Cummings is dead. Long live Johnny Ramone.
Every morning of 8th grade I woke up to the immortal Ramones medley on the Rock N Roll High School soundtrack. The Columbia House cassette sounded like shit and had no liner notes so I had no idea where this music came from. Was it old? New? For real? All I knew was the music sounded like nothing I'd ever heard before and got my ass out of bed, ready to face the fucked up world of 1979.
Little did I know nothing would ever sound the same after The Ramones. Yeah, I was a fucktard.
