Combing Through the Archives of an Alternate Universe

Thunder's comment on my last post inspired me to do some gazoogling, and I found a blog which is going to do a track-by-track dissection of the entire Ramones' oeuvre, including rarities and demos.

For a taste of what could have been, here's the demo version of Judy is a Punk:

The album version features Mickey Leigh (Joey Ramone's brother) singing "OOO-OOO-OO-OOO" during the bridge:

Here's a live version, for great justice the sake of completeness:

Here's the demo of Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World complete with the lyrics which caused Sire Records' Seymour Stein's toenails to curl:

The album version has slightly "tamed" lyrics:

If you are a Ramones fan, you owe it to yourself to check out thes two blogs, but be forewarned, they are a bit of a "time sink"... you didn't need to read the news, though.

Let's Do The Time Sink Again!

It's just a click on the web,
And then a video binge.
Open up one more tab.
Find some stuff on the fringe!
Add some L-O-L cats,
Some of those are insane!
Let's do the time sink again!
