This is a preview of Disgraceland episode 72: The Ramones. To hear the full episode for free, visit https://smarturl.it/072Ramones.Sniffing glue, hooking for drug money, hurling rocks at the Beatles, and writing infectious sunshiney melodies about their grimy reality, the Ramones were what the world needed in 1976. As rock ‘n’ roll was getting bloated with excessive experimentation and unfortunate forays into disco, four cretins from Queens stripped it all away to two-minute three-chord anthems with hard, fast backbeats and buzzing guitars. They adopted the same surname to solidify their brotherhood, and they lived like brothers and fought like brothers to the very bitter end. Listen to hear how the Ramones saved rock ‘n’ roll.

just in case anyone is feeling sad for Yolanda because she had "issues" please understand they were not mental. she had a personality disorder and an identity crisis. all things that are easily controllable. she was never suicidal. if she had ever been suicidal she would have killed herself after killing Selena. sorry but those are facts. if you are so suicidal you're going to pull out of them and kill yourself because your best friend and the woman you admire no longer likes you why wouldn't you be suicidal after you killed her? I call b*******. Yolanda was a narcissist and identity disorder she should have been talented as beautiful as loved as Selena but instead of using her own gifts to achieve admiration she chose to wrap on the mantle of somebody else's and that makes her a LOSER... not mentally ill

This should've been a 27 Club episode. But it's actually better being it is a nice single episode and not a multi-part.

You should do more research on the "gates of Graceland" details. Of all the versions of that story I have heard, yours is the most flamboyantly askew.

The pronoun thing, I know why its a big deal to some, but do people actually seek out a story, find something they like, play it, but if something is off like a he or she, does that matter in context of it just being a great story? Do the stories gain or lose value if its a man do it, or a woman? Does the story merit the listen alone, or do people seek a story out because its specifically about a trans person? Like if the narrator didn't use the preferred pronouns, would you be so angry you'd shut the podcast off? I'm not trying to start anything. I'm trying to understand it, as I'm a gen x'er and we had friends that were gay, trans, whatever but they didn't necessarily feel the need to insist everyone know about it. No, not because they would fear retribution or anything, it was something they felt didnt define them. They knew we knew, and we still loved them just as much, their friendship was equally valuable, their perspectives were just as desired, they though, as alot of us did, sex, gender, pronouns weren't what defined them. Coming up in the 80s, an era know for obliterating the gender defining stereotypes, especially in music. I mean clubs, live shows, the style was glam, the makeup was heavy, the style was hard core androgyny, everyone rocket that look. Motely Crue - Duran Duran - Hall and Oats - Cyndi Lauper - Missing Persons - Kate Bush - Boy George - Wham - Prince... ext. Back then we all knew what was going on, it wasn't something celebrated because it wasn't anything to 'accept.' It just was. Today the kids who identify as something different seem to feel the need to announce it, need everyome to know they live a different lifestyle, like its what defines their whole life. Jus wondering i guess. God bless.

these are unique in that Jake has a knack for narratives and how to tell a very convincing story. I fell for this one, and the one about Jim Morrison being the zodiac killer. (I think that's what it was, im old, forgive me.) I also understand sometimes the story and delivery style will make something thats silly sound like it might actually be true, especially when you dont know much about the artists backgrounds. I know thats the brilliance of it, I was fooled into thinking Jim Morrison was an actual killer because Jim in reality was private, stoned out of his mind, and i could buy him hurting people. haha. this is the only gripe, and its more on me probably, but some people can get a little aggravated to listen to a whole episode, and find out it wasnt a really true, in that some people listening to these podcasts are hearing artist backgrounds for the first time. again, its a minor thing. overall these have been very interesting, very to the point, full of easily digestible information that keeps your attention, and delivered with a passion that NEVER bores. great work!
