I know by the existence of "Ramones", a musical complex still in activity (at least I suppose). But for that "The Music Explosion", it's too way back in time for me.(1966-1969) I was born in 1975.

The Ramones always had good taste when it came to covers. Used to play this on the radio once in awhile.
