Joey Ramone

Add Date: May 15

Artist: Joey Ramone 

Album: "...Ya Know?" 

Label: BMG 

Genre: Rock

Comments: From the onesheet: "'...Ya Know?' is the new 15-song album comprised primarily of never-before-heard songs written and sung by legendary artist Joey Ramone. As frontman, songwriter, and [the] most prominent visual presence of punk pioneers The Ramones, Joey played a largely influential role in a musical and cultural revolution that's still relevant today...

"This collection of songs [was] drawn from a cache of demos and unreleased recordings that Ramone cut over the course of the last 15 years of his life before he unfortunately passed away due to lymphoma in 2001. Most tracks carry the same raw, intense, vibrant sound and anthemic hooks The Ramones became known for. Others give insight to a more introspective Ramone that showcase[s] a maturing songwriter."

Check out tracks 6, 1 and 5.
