ramones - too tough to die lp new york 1984



third ramones post by myself, and their last greatest release..!?! just when they were going all limp wristed and soppy they released this here beauty and cool became as cool as shite again. we all danced and rejoiced and went to see them. dee dee had his hair dyed, markie had been replaced by the richie man and the tempo was the right tempo again. this time around though, the comic book humour had gone, almost, and there was even hints of politics and genuine touchings on middle aged anger at life and love. what was before '' i sniff glue, what ya gonna do..??'' became '' fuck you, i take drugs and i hate myself ''. dee dee seemed mighty fucked off with life when he wrote this albums lyrics. heres a wee hint.....

i take some dope i feel so sick
its a sick world, sick sick sick
doomsday visions of junkies and fags
artificial phonies. i hate it hate it

death death death its the price i pay
its a sick world, what can i say
no such thing as an even break
its stealing and cheatibg. take take take

wart, wart hog
wart, wart hog
wart, wart hog
wart, wart hog

i wanna puke, i cant sit still
just took some dope and i feel ill
its a sick world, sick sick sick
its a hopeless life, i hate it hate it

its a joke, its a lie, its a rip-off man
its an outlaw life, were a renegade band
doomsday visions of commies and queers
artificial phonies. i hate it hate it

after this, in my opinion, they only released shite. there was a coupla songs here and there, but in all honesty this was the end and they should have called it quits. so get the tightest bit of clothing you can find and stick it on, preferably trouserless, download this, play it, crank it up, spark a beer and sing to long lost fallen brother. this here lp is one of the best there ever was and is. still not as good as their first 3, and thats some talking. get it on baby..!!
