What sets this tribute apart is that it consists solely of European acts brandishing wholly unique renditions of Ramones' tunes way outside the boundaries of expectation. Ramones' tunes being what they are --simple, concise, and contagious three-chord, three-minute anthemic romps for the outsider, none too troublesome to cover in the conventional way -- how about then twisting the torso a bit and bringing a true revisionist vision into the old standard?
