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

"End of the Century" is the best band documentary ever released. Interviewing over 200 famous rock stars from around the world, this DVD will not disappoint any Punk fan. I was interested in it from the start till finish. It never got boring and by the end of it my brain was filled with info I that i never even knew about before. It was a film 6 years in the making but well worth the wait. The DVD includes hidden easter eggs such as live shows and behind the scenes footage. There is a huge selection of bonus features including extra interviews, trailer, marky ramone excerpts and loads more. If your just looking for a nice easy ramones songs and live shows then "Ramones Raw" maybe more ideal than this. Despite the language and drug use, this film takes you away from the action movies and romances and embraces you in the old rock n roll.
