Well at least we agree. I can change the thread title from Ramones to VU if you want.

I mean the way the Ramones are a full-blast assault on the senses was something rock was building too obviously but never committed to in such a gloriously myopic fashion. Pointing out that VU were stripped down too is just asinine.

What about Elph being a huge (hed) PE fan.

This is his favorite song about statutory rape.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

I'd say that that's only because the VU explored things outside of that sound. When they're exploring pure rock n roll, they're mure pure imo.

Full blast assault? Lol when The Stooges already existed.

Comparing the two bands in any great sense really doesn't make sense tbh. It's like comparing Britney Spears to Bjork or something.

Still missing the target. Only through sheer attitude can the Stooges stand toe to toe with the Ramones when it comes to aural assault. Even a song like "Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell" is only just competing with "Blitzkrieg Bop", but other than that it's attitude and energy that give the Stooges an edge.

The Ramones were stripped down, a full blast assault, but also tight, fast and gleeful in a way that the stooges and VU never were

It's ridiculous to compare two early punk rock bands?

And still lol @ Ramones being a full blast assault that's a good one bro.

Beyond the things they have in common, yeah. What's the point of talking about "Venus in Furs" or "The Gift" or "Black Angel's Death Song" or "Sister Ray" in comparison to the Ramones?

Bro, you don't hear it? I get that it's easy to see them as lite in 2019 and with Joey as a singer but they're relentless af. They've got a rhythm you have to connect with on more than just an intellectual level but when you do your whole body feels it and I can't say that almost at all about VU or to the same extent for the Stooges.

Just imagine Iggy Pop singing over this.
