The Vindictives pay "tribute" to the Ramones by covering their second album, Leave Home, in its entirety (this was following Screeching Weasel's rendition of their first record). It's a pretty redundant and worthless concept except for maybe calling attention to "one of the greatest rock & roll bands ever," but at least Screeching Weasel had the decency to cover it straight through without any changes. So not only do the Vindictives do their own version of classics like "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker" and "Pinhead" with extended guitar solos and unnecessary backing vocals, but none of the songs are in the order of the original version. Blasphemy!
