For their debut album, The Ramones originally wanted an album cover similar to the 1964 Beatles album, Meet The Beatles! The label was unhappy with the first results. The group met up with Roberta Bayley, at the time a photographer for Punk Magazine. The photograph she shot turned out to be the classic Ramones album cover. The band's attitude and stance influenced the design of several other album covers and many of the band's other photos. The Ramones cover was ranked number 58 on Rolling Stone's 1991 list of 100 Greatest Album Covers.
