Band Biography

The Ramones were and are one of the most influential punk bands of all time. They took their mutual love of 60s Girl Group records (particularly those produced by Phil Spector) and applied that to short rock songs. They were great fans of pop music, although many fans didn't seem to realize this, which is odd, given the sound and structure of their songs and choices of covers, though one could see the confusion given the subject matter of many Ramones songs. The inter-band tensions are widely known, but they stayed together for a long time. Sadly, the 3 core members have died within a couple years of each other, but their influence reigns on.
