The first Ramones album (self-titled) is one of the most famous punk albums ever made. This album contained their biggest hit, Blitzkrieg Bop, and changed the punk sound forever.
Though the Ramones were a very wonderful band, they tried to reach commercialism in the middle of their career, starting around the albums "End of the Century" and "Subterranean Jungle". They were not very successful and many fans were lost. The Ramones, however, were always great in their own way, even if all of them were borderline psychotic and drank too much.
The Ramones split in 1996 and went and did their own thing. Joey Ramone made a new album entitled "Don't Worry About Me" which contains his own version of "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong.
Joey died of lymphatic cancer in 2001, Dee Dee died of a heroin overdose like an idiot in 2002, and Johnny died in 2004 of prostate cancer.
Though the main three members are gone, their music will always live on and influence following generations.
The band first started on Queens, New York in the 1974. It consist of 4 band member named Joey Ramone (Vocalist), Johnny Ramone (Guitarist), DeeDee Ramone (Bassist) and Tommy Ramone (Drummer). All of the group's members adopted the last name "Ramone". Just a few years later, Joey Ramone passed away on April 15, 2001, at age 49, the victim of lymphoma. Little more than a year later, Dee Dee Ramone was found dead in his home in Los Angeles on June 5, 2002. RIP
