After 40 years keeping the video saved, Ramones finally released the clip of “She’s The One”. The film recorded in 1978 was made in the same live session that gave rise to the video for “Don’t Come Close,” another track from Road to Ruin, released that same year.
The video comes alongside the 40-year anniversary of the album, which is gaining a remastered version. The box contains three CDs and an LP, which bring unpublished material and alterative versions of the songs.

Road to Ruin
Road to Ruin is the fourth studio album by Ramones, released on September 21, 1978, through Sire Records as LP record, 8 track cartridge & audio cassette.
It was the first Ramones album to feature new drummer Marky Ramone, who replaced Tommy Ramone. Tommy left due to lack of previous albums sales and stress while touring; however, he stayed with the band to produce the album with Ed Stasium. The artwork’s concept was designed by Ramones fan Gus MacDonald and later modified by John Holmstrom to include Marky instead of Tommy. It features the well-known track “I Wanna Be Sedated.”
The songs on Road to Ruin were considered by both fans and critics as an attempt to get the band more airplay. The album incorporated musical elements which were unheard of in punk rock, such as guitar solos and ballads. The difference in style caused for mixed reviews by critics, with many pointing out that the band was trying to sell more records through a change in form. This attempt by the band failed, as Road to Ruin peaked at 103 on the Billboard 200, over 50 places behind its predecessor, Rocket to Russia.
