Joey Ramone with 22 Jacks: Live at the Viper Room (1997)



After Joey Ramone (more HERE) and punk rocker super-ish-group 22 Jacks, recorded "I'll Be With you Tonite" for a Cheap Trick tribute album, they played a show together in 1997 at Johnny Depp's LA night club, The Viper Room. It's a cool set list. There's a few tracks from the then-forthcoming Don't Worry About Me, a batch of Ramones "hits" and, as was standard during Joey's solo performances, he does a run-through of End of the Century's "Danny Says" which he clearly felt, as I always have, was a drastically-unappreciated song.

  2. Joey covering Cheap Trick? My brain just exploded.

    Thanks for this series — so many unexpected treats, and so good to hear more Joey Ramone.

    As for Danny Says, that's the best track on End of The Century and may be my favorite Ramones tune period.

  3. Jeffen, this stuff is great, absolutely want to hear more. Danny Says, classic Joey, it shows his "60's" and girl band influences, love the slow tension buildup. Used to have it on a Christmas mixtape, my kind of Christmas music. I going back to watch Get Smart on TV and see what you could follow this up with. Thanks!

  5. Haven't a chance to hear this yet but the Cheap Trick cover is great ! And as far Danny Says goes... One of my top 10 favorite Ramones songs and the best track on End of the Century ! Pearl Jam pulls of a respectfull cover of it BTW, not that I'm a fan but a couple are old friends and I respect their work ethic within the Rock n Roll Circus. And do you need to truly ask if we want more =)

    1. I'm not a fan of PJ but they have earned my respect over the years - I'll never own an album bu8t I consider them to be on the side of the guys.

    1. It sucks to have put great effort into a post and then have someone's only response be that they hate the free file-sharing service you're using.
      Not cool.
