The single's cover sported a faux Sub Pop Singles design, despite not actually being released by the label. The song was revived on the Extended Edition of the album, which also included "Babysitter". The single was given four out of five Album) by AllMusic 's Matt Whalley, who said that the song "could have been one of the Ramones' most popular tracks if it was not pulled from the album due to legal reasons.
After the album came out in February, the band began a four-week tour of the United States starting with Los Angeles. I never really enjoyed playing them. They also had more advanced lighting techniques, but still only used white lights.
In Aprilthe band left the United States to begin their tour of Europe. Ramones co-headlined with Talking Headswho were a new wave band formed in During a Marseilles gig, the Ramones caused a power outage to a quarter of the city during a sound check. The gig was cancelled when police arrived and dispersed the fans. When their tour manager arranged for a stop at Stonehenge in Wiltshire, Johnny refused to leave the bus, saying he refused to see "a bunch of old rocks".
Leave Home has various lyrical themes throughout its track list. The opening song, "Glad to See You Go", is rather uptempo and frenetic. The track was about Dee Dee's then-girlfriend Connie, who was well known in the punk rock scene as having once dated New York Dolls bassist Arthur Kane and attempting to cut his finger off with a knife.
Connie also harmed Dee Dee in several ways, such as slicing his buttocks with a beer bottle. At the time, every other member of the band despised Dee Dee's girlfriend and he eventually broke up with her. The song was Legs McNeil's favorite song from Leave Homewho relates: "[The song] was meant to clarify that while glue might not be good for you, the cleaning fluid Carbona was definitely a better high. The lines "Gabba Gabba Hey" at the end of "Pinhead" were taken from the horror film Freakswhich the band saw in Cleveland, Ohio after their gig was cancelled.
Joey's Dance (Cassette Mickey Leigh said that it was specifically taken from Dance scene where "the midget groom does a dance on the banquet table and sings 'Gobble gobble, we accept you, one of us' to his bride. While the lyrics and musical structure remain the same throughout the piece, Joey's pronunciation upon words significantly lessened the similarity to the original song. The sound output tone also differs from the original, with more distortion as well as a faster tempo.
Author Steve Waksman relates: "From the opening bars, 'California Sun' becomes subject to the Ramones' distinctive brand of musical minimalism paired with sonic excess. The chords go by in a blur of distortion; the drums and bass kick at seemingly twice the speed of the Rivieras.
Author Avram Mednick said the song was a successor to " Blitzkrieg Bop ", released on the band's debut album. He also noted that it has a "bouncy melody and an infectious call-and-response chorus. Mednick commented that it appealed highly to those tuning into the Ramones in the UK, and also said it has a "lovely misogynistic tune.
