The Ramones- Gone but never forgotten!

Updated on August 20, 2015

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!

What were some of their best hits?

Some of the best hits from the 70's came from The Ramones!

Here they are-

Rock and Roll Radio (Do you remember?)

Sheena is a Punk Rocker!

I wanna be your boyfriend.

Blitzkrieg Bop

And of course Rock and Roll High School

Please tell me your favorites below!

Yes, someone even wrote a book about them!

They were great on stage too!

Please leave a comment below about favorites concert performances from the Punk gods of America! It doesn't matter if they were in a festival or the headliners, I am sure that many of you have great stories about Tommy and the gang!

Be as descriptive as you wish and thank you for reading!

      I got to see the Ramones live at the 1996 Lollapalooza tour. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see such an influential band. They put on such a great show. They will be missed. Many bands were influenced by their unique punk rock sound.
