Sony Music has recently reissued the 2003 compilation We’re A Happy Family on two different coloured vinyl. The compilation, initially released on CD in February 2003, is a tribute album compiled by Rob Zombie paying tribute to the music of The Ramones. The CD was issued on Columbia Records, and featured U2 performing the song “Beat on the Brat.” The CD has never been released on any downloading or streaming service, and this new pressing is the first pressing of this album on vinyl.
