I never thought about my own personality when listening to The Ramones, you both raise a good point. I'll approach them more self-centredly and will report back.

Anyways, 1:19 is hella metal

Did you mean to post this in the unpopular opinions thread?

Using Bat's criteria in his opening statement, I'd have to go with Motorhead. However Lemmy would argue that Motorhead was not a Metal band. Just a Rock 'n Roll band. The thing that Motorhead shared with The Ramones was they never changed their sound. Lemmy stuck to formula the same way The Ramones did. Furthermore Lemmy was also a huge fan of The Ramones, obviously. R.A.M.O.N.E.S. Ramones!!

We wanna be like Status Quo and go on forever. Chuck Berry never changed. Little Richard never changed. I’d rather be like that and stick to a formula we’re happy with. -- Lemmy Kilmister (ZigZag, 1980)

Out of all the criteria set forth and arguments thus supporting such claims. I decided to look at the problem from the most quintessential and fundamental basis of comparison and chosen black leather jackets as the most important criterion of all criteria.

Judas Priest are the Ramones of Heavy Metal.

Now I wish Johnny Ramone and Rob Halford had been in a band together just for the awkward silences.

Hey if Sammy Hagar can join Van Halen, or Blaze Bayley can join Iron Maiden ... who knows how great if could be? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Probably should've posted this in my previous reply, but epic nonetheless.

The true origin point does not have to be the purest essence though. I'd say that's what happens with the ramones: they are not the true origin point of punk, and certainly not of rock 'n roll, but they stripped it down to its essence in an unique, unparalleled way I think
