Jim calls The Ramones“one of the most important bands America has ever produced.”This box set, Weird Tales of the Ramones, contains more outtakes than ever, and makes the set worth owning, even though he would have rather seen "Rock and Roll High School" included as the bonus DVD. The most important part of the set, according to Jim and Greg, is the 54-page comic strip-style liner notes, with contributing artists like Jamie Hernandez, John Holmstrom, Bill Griffin, and Sergio Aragonés. Greg notes that most box set liner notes are written by pompous critics, and feels that these should win a Grammy award for their style and flair. Both Jim and Greg heartily give this a "Buy It" rating.
