Nicholas Rombes examines punk history, with the recording of Ramones at its core, in this inspiring and thoroughly researched justification of his obsession with the album.

    "Not good at all."

    The first 20 minutes is just a definition of the word PUNK!!! Also every critic, author and the occasional fan is quoted as to the meaning of PUNK. This reminds me of a badly done college essay where a student has to write a certain amount of words, needlessly adding crap just to get the amount of words in. Just really poorly done and a waste of money.
