The Ramones- Gone but never forgotten!
There can be only one!
The Ramones have left the building. How sad!
Since the mid-1970s The Ramones have had a big impact on the American music scene. With the hard drum beats, unique lyrics, and unforgettable voice of front man Joey Ramone, who could ever forget them? Maybe they weren't the best American rock band, (maybe, I say) but they were probably the most unique and went where other bands would not dare to go.

Rock and roll on the radio!
The last passes away.
Just this past Friday (7/11), Tommy Ramone just died of cancer. He helped get the band going and kept them unique! He was the producer, architect, helped manage the band and even wrote their first hit "Blitzkrieg Bop". You know, the "Hey HO, Let's Go" song!
He also came up with their image. He said the group should all wear leather jackets and look like hoodlums.
Tommy was influential, innovative, and a leader for one of the most memorable and loved American Bands!
Wow I guess they really did!
