Ramouns - Rockway Beach Boys
The Ramouns are a Ramones themed tribute band covering Beach Boy songs with '409', 'Little Honda', 'I Get Around', 'Shutdown', and more. This album comes with its own fictional (I believe) back story ala the likes of Fozzy and Spinal Tap.
The band manage to pull it off very well, with the image and general sound of the Ramones coming through really well, and it really does work on the Beach Boy classic, to my ears in many ways improving the songs in many places making them more enjoyable for the average rock / punk fun.
12 songs are pure fun!
