Medieval Costumes – The Medieval era is often referred to as The Middle Ages (and Americans sometimes use the term ‘Renaissance’ for costumes included in this period). This was quite a long period of time, from the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century, up to the beginning of the 16th century and the era called The Early Modern Period. A lot of people do get confused between Medieval and Tudor, Medieval being earlier than Tudor. Most people think of Medieval as ladies wearing pointed hats, Robin Hood and Knights. Towards the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Tudor era wealthy men started to wear jackets and short trousers (doublet and hose).<

Their next two albums, Leave Home and Rocket to Russia , were released in 1977. Both were produced by Tommy and Tony Bongiovi , the second cousin of Jon Bon Jovi .  Leave Home met with even less chart success than Ramones , though it did include "Pinhead", which became one of the band's signature songs with its chanted refrain of "Gabba gabba hey!" Leave Home also included a fast-paced cover of the oldie " California Sun ", written by Henry Glover & Morris Levy, and originally recorded by Joe Jones,  though the Ramones based their version on the remake by the Rivieras. Rocket to Russia was the band's highest-charting album to date, reaching number 49 on the Billboard 200 .  In Rolling Stone , critic Dave Marsh called it "the best American rock & roll of the year".  The album also featured the first Ramones single to enter the Billboard charts (albeit only as high as number 81): " Sheena Is a Punk Rocker ". The follow-up single, "Rockaway Beach", reached number 66—the highest any Ramones single would ever reach in America. On December 31, 1977 the Ramones recorded It's Alive , a live concert double album, at the Rainbow Theatre , London, which was released in April 1979 (the title is a reference to the 1974 horror film of the same name ).
