Never released in theaters, this documentary on the Ramones in they're final days (the final tour in 1996) is remarkably insightful into how the Ramones rose into the three cord punk sensation which came about more than a dozen albums, 2263 shows, and a whole lot of other stuff. Another thing is the fans, which we see as being obscure ones and famous ones (we don't even need to mention Lemmy). Also included are often hilarious and rockin TV appearances (Uncle Floyd, The Simpsons, Swedish TV) and of course interviews with the original members of the band. Everything is set together very finely, and even though it ever was released it should've been, even as a indie pic. Only flaws are sometimes shambled cinematography and a un-needed interview with Jello Biafra (well, they don't look like the stooges). Otherwise, must see and must listen; CD is included. Highlight songs include the classics and lesser known ones: Blitzkrieg Bop, Pet Semetary, Teenage Lobotomy, Beat on the Brat. A
