Time To Get Manly 44: Ramones - Road To Ruin

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Ramones - Road to Ruin

Between the selection of this and Combat Rock, I'm really wondering who Esquire's punk rock consultant was for this list. I'm not even some kind of crazy punk purist, but I can't see why anybody would choose Road to Ruin over any of the band's first three records. Even the inclusion of "I Wanna Be Sedated" and "Needles and Pins" (one of my favorites) isn't reason enough. Get the self titled debut or Rocket To Russia. Even their iconic album covers are more manly than Road To Ruin's cartoon pic.
