The late Joey Ramone's upcoming posthumous set ...Ya Know? is set to drop May 15, but you can get a sneak peek of what's to come via the newly revealed single "Rock 'N Roll Is the Answer."

While we were previously privy to a live clip of the fist-pumping rocker, down below you'll find the glossed-up studio version. It plays a little clunky, though, with chunky AC/DC-style rawk riffs scoring Ramone's tale of a Saturday night where he's about to get a belly full of beer so he can feel all right.

We're not sure who delivers the double-hand tapping solo mid-song, but the LP does feature guest guitar work from the likes of Joan Jett and Steven Van Zandt, among others.

"Rock 'N Roll Is the Answer" will also be pressed on seven-inch vinyl as a Record Store Day (April 21) exclusive, which explains the clip's cycle of pressing plant footage.
