Brain Drain is the eleventh studio album by the American punk rock band the Ramones, released on March 23, 1989. It is the last Ramones release to feature bassist/lyricist/vocalist Dee Dee Ramone, the first to feature Marky Ramone since his initial firing from the band after 1983's Subterranean Jungle and the band's last studio album on Sire Records.
Dee Dee Ramone stated: “It was tough recording the Brain Drain album because everyone took their shit out on me. I dreaded being around them. It drove me away — I didn't even end up playing on the album. Everybody in the band had problems; girlfriend problems, money problems, mental problems”.
Johnny Ramone expressed similarly unfavorable sentiments in his 2012 autobiography, Commando, calling it "one of my least favorite albums, but it has a couple of bright spots, like 'Miracles' and 'Punishment Fits the Crime.'" He awarded both the Brain Drain album and its follow-up, Mondo Bizarro, a "C" letter grade.
Dee Dee appears as the bassist in both of the music videos for "Pet Sematary" but was replaced by new bassist C.J. Ramone in the videos for "I Believe In Miracles" and "Merry Christmas."
