He's against artists who do things he doesn't like presumably.

I don't need an artist to evolve their sound, if I like the core formula

it would be really weird if Ramones did

they're not that type of band

Even a likeable core formula can be rehashed into mediocrity. I wouldn't be so hard on them if they only released one or two albums.

See the thing with the Ramones is that they released three perfect albums before doing anything else. Like, literally three completely perfect albums, 90 minutes of pure perfection, that even in 2019 feels like if you like what the Ramones were doing at the time then you have an hour and a half of exactly that to throw on repeat as if Satan were tempting you with punk.

About as stripped down as metal gets without being actual punk.
