You should really change that.  Start with the "Leave Home" reissue.  It's got all the great songs from the 1st album tacked on at the end in a live concert, and that's the way they should be heard...fast & furious!

This was probably their most-fun (and most "radio-friendly") song they ever recorded, and yet it was still shunned by radio programmers.

Too bad it took 20 years before it caught on with the masses, but by then, it was too late to save the band.

Totally agree! I like reading and posting on this site, even if I feel that some of the stuff is rubbish that I disagree with (as in below72’s post). I believe however that even the idiots are entitled to their opinions and as long as they aren’t nasty they shouldn't be insulted for them. Lets all self-moderate and avoid abusive comments as I’d hate to see this site descend into some of the vileness you see in other less enlightened areas of social media.

Stupid is what stupid does.  They couldn't play, they couldn't sing, they couldn't write, scooped up whatever drugs they could find...and millions of idiots listened to these fools.  Like Don Henley said: Some rich men came and raped the land, Nobody caught 'em - Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus, people bought 'em - And they called it paradise (The Last Resort)
In short - this band totally sucked wind.

Maybe so about Henley. Nonetheless, the song you quote is quite a good, a very thoughtful and an ever-relevant song. No hackdom there.

Zero tolerance for others and other lifestyles, other cultures. Only the own way of thinking is right, right. 

What is stupid here is you, that you not only think this way, but also feel compelled to share this stupid thoughts with us.

It is everyones perogative to listen to and like and find good and appreciate WHATEVER THEY WANT!
And it is not you place to "forbit" this or call it madness.

But if it is madness, then I am rather mad than a stupid fool like you!

There are a lot of bands, even nowadays who cannot sing, write or play, and still make bucketloads of money.

And good for them, I say.

Shame you are such a jealous, bitter and intolerant freak. Your life must really suck, Dude.

I hear that. 
Still, da Ramones were fun. NYC CBGB would not have been the same without them. (I wouldn't know, personally, though, I was in school in Boston at the Rathskeller and thereabouts.) 
A word to your lyrics. One of my fav Eagle songs, and one of my fav songs about social justice and human ethics, or lack thereof. 
One comma in, or out, makes a big big difference.

I think you’ll find this type of thing is called ‘rock n roll’. Perhaps you would be more confortable with an ‘easy listening’ station.

I heard the band wrote this song while being stranded in London on Christmas Eve. Everything was closed and they couldn't get a flight back to the U.S. for another 24 hours so they were stuck with nothing to do, nowhere to go-ho.
