Released on March 4th, the album Ramonesesque features a vast collection of punk-soaked, Ramones-inspired tracks, by a plethora of committed indie bands and artists.
The aim is to draw focus to the overdose epidemic of America, and to raise awareness about the overpriced cost of lifesaving Narcan.

“Overdose deaths in North Carolina are at an all-time high. Naloxone is highly effective at stopping heroin, fentanyl, and other opioid overdoses. The nonprofit price for a two-pack of Narcan is $75. That’s too expensive for most musicians.
At that price, small nonprofits like Musicians for Overdose Prevention simply cannot afford to buy enough Narcan for those who need it throughout the music community.
Without naloxone, people will continue to die from preventable overdoses.”
