Watch Morrissey Cover The Ramones In Brooklyn

Just as the rest of the world has had a bit of an up-and-down relationship with Morrissey, Morrissey has had a bit of an up-and-down relationship with the Ramones.

Forty years ago, a 17-year-old “Steve” Morrissey was not a fan, writing in the July 23, 1976 issue of Melody Maker magazine that “The Ramones are the latest bumptious band of degenerate no-talents whose most notable achievement to date is their ability to advance beyond the boundaries of New York City, and purely on the strength of a spate of convincing literature projecting the Ramones as God’s gift to rock music.”

He later changed his mind, saying a few years ago that “Three days after writing that Ramones piece, I realized that my love for the Ramones would out-live time itself. And it shall.” He curated a special Record Store Day Ramones release in 2014, and last night, during the encore of his performance at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre, Moz broke out a cover of the Ramones’ “Judy Is A Punk.” Watch below.
