Gabba Gabba Hey [Triple X, 1991]
Somehow I dreamed Ramones songs would resist interpretation simply enough to make a tribute fun. Instead I'm wondering whether Sniffin' Glue went too far when it showed the world how to play those three magic chords. Double-redundant because the respectful L.A. punkoids it corrals are quadruple-obscure, this scenester showcase coughs up small surprises from L7 (gurls), the Creamers (mostly gurls), and the Badtown Boys (not gurls). Yabba dabba doo. C+
