Brats On The Beat - Ramones For Kids

About 18 months ago I mentioned my son's liking for the Ramones. To be fair this was virtually pre-determined as can be seen from this photo, taken at the ripe old age of 1 month and 1 day. A meaner looking punk rocker you're unlikely to meet.

We actually stopped playing them for a while, but a couple of months ago the Ramones again became a staple choice and our son is regularly overheard singing snippets such 'Hey Ho Let's Go'  (natch), 'I remember you, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh', and our current favourite, '53rd and Bird' (for those of you without children, there's a kids TV programme called 3rd And Bird).

A little late in the day given that he's so immersed in the real thing, but we've just picked up Brats on the Beat: Ramones for Kids. With contributions from members of Pennywise, the Dwarves, Alkaline Trio amongst others, it's a step up from the Rockabye Baby CDs (as good as they are) and is a fundraiser for the St Jude Children's Research Hospital to boot.
