Ramones fans who have played Rocket To Russia a hundred times are in for a new treat. The first track on Joey Ramone‘s album …Ya Know? leaked this week. The entire album comes out on May 22, which is 11 years after Joey died of lymphoma and 10 years after his first posthumous release, Don’t Worry About Me.
Joey was the Ramone’s frontman, but his solo work is a bit different. Spinner calls “Rock ‘N Roll Is The Answer” a “a rollicking nod to the AC/DC-style ’80s arena rock that the Ramones never fully indulged in.” Don’t be turned off if AC/DC isn’t your thing; this is not his best song, but it’s a breath of fresh air for fans who will never stop craving more Ramones.

The CD and Vinyl are out on May 22, 2012, and they’re available to preorder on Amazon.
