Song of the day is a daily feature highlighting a specific track that might be badass, catchy, mellow, or poppy. As long as it stands out for some reason it’s fair game.
Ramones – “It’s Not My Place (In The 9 To 5 World)”
The later Ramones albums don’t get as much credit as they should. In fact, for a genre so concerned with selling out the punk forefathers really sold out. That isn’t a criticism at all, bands that “sell out” are usually just “better”. The Ramones became cartoon-y after their fourth album but they didn’t decrease in quality until their 10th or so. Four through ten are fun, poppy albums that a desperate for a top 40 hit. This basically sounds like the Beach Boys, gotta love it.
