The Ramones

If there were a Punk Rock Hall of Fame (a distasteful idea)...The Ramones would be the first inducted. In true Johnny fashion, I will refer to the stats: 2,262 shows (in a VAN, mind you), 14 studio records, 5 live records, 4 drummers (Tommy, Richie, Marky, and Clem), 2 bass players (both great), 1 film (classic)

and a million fucking t-shirts...As far as record sales, that doesn't mean shit compared to the above...The Ramones never had a comeback because they never quit. The idea that this was their last show made me sick to my stomach...So, on behalf of everyone whose blood rises upon hearing "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" I say, THANKS.
