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.

Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus, people bought 'em

Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus people bought 'em

Hard to believe this came out when I graduated from high school.  I was ignorant of them at the time. 

This song is timeless!

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.

Great fun and and great memories.

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.

In 1981 there was a guy on my college freshman hall that played this everyday at the end of classes.  I couldn't stand listening to the song for the longest time.  But with a little time and separation, I feel that exuberant joy.  Love hearing this song again!

Recently read this this book—what a quick, fun read.  It's several years old now, but besides Johnny dying, nothing has really changed since it came out.  Monte always had their backs.

See if you can locate one through your local library if you're a fan and can't find one in a store.  You'll plow through it in lightning speed, just like The Ramones did when they covered "Let's Dance" 38 YEARS AGO!
