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 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 original and best punk rock band. Formed in New York City in 1974, when rock'n'roll and pop was full of depressing shit (this was after the Beatles broke up), the Ramones wanted to bring the excitement back to rock'n'roll music. And they did! Oh yeah! Rock'n'roll was revitalized and fun again and would be until the mid 90s. I saw this band 4 times before they broke up in 1996. They ALWAYS played different setlists and they always delivered first-rate rock'n'roll. Today's poser punk bands do not measure up to these guys. LONG LIVE THE RAMONES!
Check out their anthology "Hey! Ho! Let's Go!" and their live album "Loco Live". This is the first band to be officially labeled as "punk", and they're still better than the rest (although there have been many other great punk bands since the Ramones, too!). .

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!

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.
