The Ramones' long kiss goodnight was the longest in rock & roll history, beating out the Who's march into history books by spreading it out over the course of over two years. The double-disc We're Outta Here! captures what the band swears was its last concert ever at the Palace in Hollywood and while the group was in good form, the end result is no better or no worse than the average Ramones live album. Sure, there are some guest spots -- Dee Dee Ramone drops by, as does Eddie Vedder, Lemmy from Motorhead, Chris Cornell & Ben Shepard of Soundgarden and Tim Armstrong and Lars Frederikson from Rancid -- but the sound remains the same, which is a mixed blessing. Sure, it reminds you why the Ramones were great, but it also reminds you why only diehard fans followed them through the last 10 years of their existence. And if you're one of those diehard fans -- i.e., someone who can sing along with "Someone Put Something In My Drink" and "Any Way You Want It" -- this is for you.
