Ramones, New York

Band Bio / Lineups / Discography

With the possible exception of the Sex Pistols and The Clash, more has been written these guys than any other punk band, and not without good cause. I shan't bother repeating the story of their lives because the band bio is featured on the CD scans pages of the records listed below (well, they will be shortly when I scan them in), except to say that they formed in New York in 1974 and with four chords set the precedent for most of what has happened, punk-wise, ever since. These boys managed to be incredibly stoopid and smart at the same time, not an easy feat to pull off (try asking The Lurkers). The only thing they got wrong was the long hair, and even long hair looked cool on these bastards.
