Joey Ramone: Rock 'n Roll Is the Answer

tu120530cover.jpgThe late Joey Ramone was the voice of the punk rock movement. He left behind a ton of demos and home recordings composed over the last 15 years of his life. They've been gathered in loving tribute by his blood brother, Mickey Leigh, on Ya Know?, a new recording that features a slew of big name fans including Joan Jett and Steven Van Zandt. Today's Top Tune is an ode to arena rock with Plasmatics' Richie Stotts on lead guitar on "Rock 'n Roll Is the Answer."
