Ramones Wedding Songs for a Blitzkrieg Bop

Updated November 28, 2023 | Author: Matthew Campbell

The Ramones are an American punk rock band originally from New York City. The Ramones influenced the punk rock movement in the U.S.A. and more notably in the U.K.

Interesting to know that all of the band members took on names with the surname “Ramone”, although none of them were related.

The band started in 1974 and performed its final concert in 1996.   In 2002, the Ramones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Another award of note is the band was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011.

The punk rock music genre developed between 1974 and 1976. Punk bands thwarted mainstream radio. Punk bands created fast, hard-edged music, typically with short songs, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishment lyrics. Other original punk bands included Sex Pistols, The Clash, and The Damned in London.
