Hailing from the New York borough of Queens, the RAMONES have been labelled by many as the first real punk rock group. Founded by Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone in 1974, the band has dodged great commercial success but has had an impact on countless bands in recent music history. But the RAMONES themselves have been inspired by a wide array of interesting and unreckoned band and artists.
