The Ramones

"Hey! Ho! Let's go!", that's the well-known battle cry in "Blitzkrieg Bop", a classic by the Ramones, which is still played, heard, and sung after all these decades... The Ramones started back in 1974 in New York - the band name was an adaptation of the stage name used by Paul McCartney on a tour he did under the pseudonym of Paul Ramone. But that was the only similarity between the Beatles and the Ramones... The Ramones are wild and dirty, and they are a Punk band that is still respected today. With altogether 2263 concerts under their belt, the Ramones have been one of the most active bands ever, too. The Ramones released 14 albums between 1976 and 1995 - timeless works such as "Road To Ruin" or "Leave Home" have long become musical monuments for the band and the fans. But the first album of the band is absolutely legendary and part of any serious record collection - it contains the already mentioned smash hit "Blitzkrieg Pop". Even after the passing of band founders Joey, Johnny, and Dee Dee Ramone, the band still has a steadfast cult status - which is totally justified because the Ramones have created something big.

The Ramones still have a cult status and are a vital part of the music world - of course we have a wide range of their merchandise and albums available in our EMP shop. Check it out!
