Ramones restored rock and roll even during its lowest and most critical times, combining it with punk energy, loud and hasty attitude, fast new music. What sets this group apart from their fellow popular artists is that they went back to the basics. They did easy, speedy, stripped down rock n roll music. Every song was sensible. Even if some of their themes and lyrics were a bit dark, they were able to bring a fun and energetic feeling to the listeners.
Their self entitled debut album was released in 1976. Knowing that punk has already been liked and supported by music lovers for decades now, it just attests to the genre’s durability, which the Ramones has actually helped built. Most of their songs were inspired from stories and characters in horror movies, comics, girl groups, and rock. The group had become a major influence among younger bands.
The Ramones were very successful in connecting with the youth from different parts of the world. Some of their most popular songs include “Glad to See You Go”, “Sheena Is A Punk Rocker”, “I Wanna Be Sedated”, “Blitzkrieg Bop”, “Rockaway Beach”, “Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio?”, and “I Wanna Be Sedated”. All of these have stood the test of time as compared to others who have made it to the top chart yet they are nowhere to be found or are already forgotten now.
The group has performed several concerts. They have released a total of 21 studio, live and compilation tracks in a span of 20 years, issuing one album per year. Their first 4 albums were the most brilliant and popular of them all. Their last show was held in 1996 in LA.
Throughout the years, there were many changes in the group members. Tommy relinquished the drum to Marky, and worked as a co-producer and adviser instead. Marky was later on replaced by CJ, though he never didn’t lose connection with the band and had helped them in a way when they did a bow out in 1995, the Adios Amigos.
History, perhaps, has finally caught up with the band. They are now considered as one of the best and most influential bands in America, and their songs reach more ears now that it did before. A lot of younger men and women today still love rock and roll. The Ramones’ music will continue to be heard now and in the years to come.
