Monday Melody: I Wanna Be Sedated (Ramones)

Most people, when they think of what sort of music was popular in the late ’70s, automatically think of Disco. But these were also the years of the rise of punk and new wave, which heralded the ’80s to come. The Ramones were one of the first punk rock bands in the United States, and 1978’s “I Wanna Be Sedated” was one of their most well known tunes.

The official video is entertaining and hilarious–almost as much fun to watch as the song is to listen to. It’s hard to keep up with all the crazy goings-on (and I do mean literally crazy). You might feel like you could use some sedation yourself by the end of it.

    • There are some exceptions, but for the most part popular music stopped being very good at the end of the ’90s. There’s still good music being made, but most of it isn’t being played on the radio. You have to look harder for it.
