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.

  1. I am a fan of the Ramones, and of punk in general. When I was in New York, I visited the intersection of 53rd and 3rd just so I could get a picture.

    The music is golden back in the days. Now, it has not much worth. That is the sad truth.

      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.
