Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

I don't not enjoy this album. I don't not understand it's importance. As far as this brand of punk, 1976 was preeeetty early.

Perhaps over time this album will click a little more with me, but as of now I respect it more than I like it in all honesty. I do really love that closing track, however.

A game changing debut this was also the Ramones best album. This is where I’m comfortable drawing the line and saying this was the first official punk album. Hey Ho Let’s Go!

I can only agree with caseygow that they are a one-trick pony.
There is a severe lack of variation on this album.
Almost all tracks sound identical musically.
This album is very enjoyable though if you neglect that.

The album that ultimately launched a million high school garage bands. Real rock and roll rising from the ashes and being reborn in a flash of lightning. God bless this band!

A very funny pop-inflected punk rock album.

My all time favorite album. Absolute classic, and I learned to play guitar by listening to this. Johnny's relentless downpicking was awesome, and there's something about Joey's vocals that really fit the crazy lyrics and made me love his vocals even more.

Favorites: The first 8 songs and I Don't Wanna Walk Around With You.

There's an enormous lack of punk rock listeners on this site. You're just missing a stand out classic, the born of a legend. Long live the Ramones!

There are a couple of great tracks on this album, but their following albums are far better than this one, Rocket to Russia in particular.

The Ramones are basically a one trick pony but it's a pretty fun trick. Whatever you may think, these guys helped lead a much needed wake up call at the time.


Favorite tracks:

Blitzkrieg Bop
Beat On The Brat
I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend
