Shonen Knife – Rock ‘N’ Roll High School (2011)

Scroll down to content

Led by founding member/guitarist/vocalist Naoko, the band roars its way through a baker’s dozen of choice Ramones classics including “Blitzkrieg Bop,” “Sheenah Is a Punk Rocker” and “Rock ’n’ Roll High School.” Naoko, drummer Emi and bassist Ritsuko don’t bother to add anything new; the three simply strapped on the instruments, counted down and flew into these classics with wild abandon. Walking a tightrope between machine-gun punk and thundering metal, these Japanese knives slice their way through the Ramones’ canon with sharp execution, singing in charming, heavily accented English.
