In 1974, the New York City music scene was shocked into consciousness by the violently new and raw sound of a band of misfits from Queens, called The Ramones. Playing in a seedy Bowery bar to a small group of fellow struggling musicians, the band struck a chord of disharmony that rocked the foundation of the mid-'70s music scene. This quartet of unlikely rock stars traveled across the country and around the world connecting with the disenfranchised everywhere, while sparking a movement that would resonate with two generations of outcasts across the globe. Although the band never reached the top of the Billboard charts, it managed to endure by maintaining a rigorous touring schedule for 22 years. Written by

That's one thing I learned from the Ramones: "Slam! There's that number... where's the next one?" Because people are watching, people have got things to do! It's a busy world out there. Give it to them!

what a laugh I had watching this film ! It's ridiculous that a band like The Ramones haven't got a proper DVD with their videos etc etc . . . and the documentary even though hasn't got any video as such has great interviews with Dee Dee (Uber Cool he is and funny as . . .) Johnny ( never though he was such an idiot), Joey ( a darling that never said anything bad about anyone), Marky and the rest of the musicians...and Areturo Vega the designer of their logo and official Ramones website and merchandising.
The early footage from the CBGB (1970 ish) it's incredibly funny and endearing along with arguments on stage that will make you laugh till you die, they were really excellent.
I am just a fan of this band and I will always have them close to my heart for their music, their attitude, their sense of humour and above all they cheer me up when I am down and this film just made me feel even closer to them.
