It’s never too late for a witty rejoinder

“This is yet another group in what has become a fixed New York pattern. Black leather jackets, a parodistic macho camp swagger, and furious blasting rock and roll. But what the Ramones offer is non-stop energy (based on double-time guitar strumming), a few clever hooks, and sudden start-and-stop endings to their songs. For all the underground image, this is a band with obvious commercial potential, and one imagines that potential will start being realized very soon.”
–John Rockwell, The New York Times, 1975

“John Rockwell’s a shithead. Nobody should read the New York Times.”
–Johnny Ramone, 1980
