One of the greatest classic punk bands ever, but they can't play their instroments for shit. Basically, the inventors of punk rock!
They kick ass, but suck
The best punk band that ever lived, one I would sell my soul to see live, but can't, because the lead singer (Joey Ramone) died. they were incepted in 1974 and gave their final concert in 1996.
Members of the band; Joey (vocals), Johnny (guitar), Dee Dee (lyrics, bass) Tommy (drums), Marky (drums after Tommy left) and CJ.
The Ramones were inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame, but Joey did not live to see this--he died of lymphatic cancer on April 15, 2002.
the Ramones were inducted a year later, and 2 months after the ceremony Dee Dee died, on June the 5th.
Some songs include Teenage Lobotomy, Pinhead, The KKK Took My Baby Away, Rock and Roll High School, and others.
See www.ramones.com for more info on band members, discography, etc.
the Corner of Bowery and 2nd Street in NYC was recently names "Joey Ramone Place" in honor of the great man.
They are the founding fathers of today's punk culture, and they added numerous dimensions to the world of punk of today. If you are a poser
you only pretend to like the Ramones because other people do.
best punk band ever
The punk rock band that would stomp all sorts of ass into these nu-fake punk rock bands. Joey is a god.
Gabba Gabba Hey! - Joey
BEST PUNK BAND THAT EVER LIVED! Many Classic songs, the true inventors of punk and the best songs i've ever heard. NO ONE is as good as them with 3 chords and simple songs. Easy to play, yet no one can match them.
Blitzkrieg Bop, Teenage Lobotomy, I just wanna have something to do, Beat on the Brat, 53rd and 3rd, Commando
The inventors of punk rock - NOT the Sex Pistols or The Clash.
Most California pop-punkers base thier sound and lyrics on these guys, but none of them can match the style, wit and class of the originals!
"Beat on The Brat, Beat on the Brat, Beat on the Brat with a Baseball Bat! - Oh Yeah, Oh Yeh-haa..."
Greatest punk band ever. They started the punk scene but they did not set out by calling themselves punks. They formed the band to bring back rock n roll. They were a reaction to there being nothing decent to listen to on the radio, it was all Led Zepplin with their 20 minute soloes. The Ramones played fast but this did not mean their music wasn't as good, they still had the greatest sound ever whilst playing it faster than most people can.
Go out and buy The Ramones - Anthology and listen to the second disk for their best songs ever, in my opinion.
BEST PUNK ROCK BAND EVER!!! FIRST PUNK ROCK BAND EVER!!! buy the their toughest hits album, its the bomb.also, on blitzkrieg bop, people always edit the word "shoot", dont do that, its not a happy song, ITS A PUNK SONG, which is happy and not at the same time, get it?
hey, ho, lets go!(x4) they're forming in a straight line, going through a tight wind, the kids are losing their minds, blitzkrieg bop........ (rest on lyrics.com)
