I find it sad and really odd that the entire original Ramones are now all dead.
I wonder is the Ramones the only modern rock and roll band/punk that all it's members have passed?

They where one of my favorite punk bands and i feel the best punk band of all time imho.


The Ramones were an American punk rock band that formed in the New York City neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens, in 1974. Despite achieving only limited commercial success, the band was a major influence on the punk rock movement in both the United States and United Kingdom.


R.I.P
Joey Ramone (1951–2001)
Dee Dee Ramone (1952–2002)
Johnny Ramone (1948–2004)
Tommy Ramone (1949–2014)

A Canadian band called Chaos Drunk Punx is true blue but I think all or most died in a van accident? They seem to be obscure. I would bet good money that I'm the only one with a CDP patch (homemade but pretty good).

Thanks for posting this, i didn't know.
I was not a very great fan (i was a punk however) but my mate Frank (RIP) had all their cd's and i liked the sound when i was at his place, which was often, i had the apartment above his. Frank had Hendrix, Zappa, Floyd. like i said a cool guy.
Did they do 'pet cemetary'? I'm sure it was. cool.

I recently went to see the last 2 active members of my favourite band, the Stranglers, with some fill-ins, including the new front man (forgot his name) but he was good at the rough older numbers they used to play in pubs, IMHO way better than the first guy after Hugh left, i loved it, but it's never the same, is it?
Thanks for posting anyway, and reminding me of my age, i will add the Ramones to my collection of oldies
;D

That is too bad. ...and all of them so damned young. Though all of 'em were older than me. Grew up listening to punk.

The Ramones, the Clash, so many others. Every day it seems, more and more of my childhood passes on from this world.

Got some music to listen to...

Regret never seeing any of the Ramones. But in July I finally got to see Cress on their first US tour. Amazing and music that fits with ATS's deny ignorance credo. Cetascean from Winnipeg's great too, their split with Imperial Decline is real good.

The Stranglers last album was shockingly bad, the albums with Paul Roberts weren't bad at all but they suffered a lot when Cornwell left. Great band generally though


Far as OP, yeah it's strange that all the original members are gone but The Ramones are still a very influential act.

Couple days ago I wanna be sedated came on the radio, man it's been a long time. How did I forget? Did I? I don't know. I loved the Ramones. Brought back some serious memories, I cranked it up, the wife was looking at me like WTF. I told her this is what I was into back in the day, she knew of the Ramones but wasn't a fan I guess.

I guess I have reached that point in life where I have an appreciation for the "good old days". Time to buy a vet. And crank some Ramones, Suicidal tendencies, the cure, the dead Kennedy's, butthole surfers, black flag, dead milkmen, he'll, I might even get out some wasp. Lol

Thanks dude for getting my mind back
