Ramones - Brain Drain (1989). Update Required To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin.

Though it contains one of the Ramones' biggest radio hits, "Pet Sematary" (written for Stephen King's movie of the same name), 1989's Brain Drain finds the "bruthas" from Queens at an all-time inspirational low. And since the aforementioned track is actually reviled by most of the band's hardcore fans, the listener has to make do with opener "I Believe in Miracles" and closer "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)," which bookend the amazingly dull tracks in between with the record's only bright moments.

Brain Drain is the 11th studio album by the American punk rock band Ramones. It was released on March 23, 1989. It is the last release to feature bass player Dee Dee Ramone, the first release to feature Marky Ramone since his departure after Subterranean Jungle, and the last studio album on Sire Records. About the making of the album, Dee Dee wrote in his autobiography, Lobotomy: Surviving the Ramones: It was tough recording the Brain Drain album because everyone took their shit out on me. I dreaded being around them. It drove me away - I didn't even end up playing on the album.

The Ramones were an American punk rock band from New York City. Their discography consists of fourteen studio albums, seven live albums, sixteen compilation albums, seventy-one singles, thirty-two music videos and ten films. The band formed in early 1974, and upon signing with Seymour Stein of Sire Records, the Ramones released their self-titled debut album on April 23, 1976.

Brain Drain is the eleventh studio album by the American punk band the Ramones. Released on May 23, 1989, it is the last release to feature bass player Dee Dee Ramone, and the last studio album on Sire Records. Dee Dee wrote in his autobiography, Lobotomy: Surviving the Ramones: "It was tough recording the Brain Drain album because everyone took their shit out on me.

25 years ago today, the Ramones released their 11th studio album, Brain Drain, a notable record for the band in more ways than one, some of them good, some of them maybe not so much. Certainly, it’s notable for featuring the band’s theme song for the film adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, a track which hit on Billboard’s then-new Modern Rock chart and has proven to be one of the Ramones’ more enduring singles. It also has a pretty entertaining video, one which includes cameos from Debbie Harry and Chris Stein. For longtime fans of the bruddas, it’s also pretty exciting that it’s.
