This is the complete review of the history and music of the band during its
seventies heyday plus rarely seen performances from the 80s.
The Ramones are the first punk rock band. Other bands, such as the
Stooges and the New York Dolls, came before them and set the stage and
aesthetic for punk, and bands that immediately followed, such as the Sex
Pistols, made the latent violence of the music more explicit, but The
Ramones crystallized the musical ideals of the genre. By cutting rock
& roll down to its bare essentials four chords; a simple, catchy
melody; and irresistibly inane lyrics and speeding up the tempo
considerably, The Ramones created something that was rooted in early
'60s, pre-Beatles rock & roll and pop but sounded revolutionary.
Since their breakthrough was theoretical as well as musical, they
comfortably became the leaders of the emerging New York punk rock scene.
While their peers such as Patti Smith, Television, Talking Heads, and
Richard Hell all were more intellectual and self-consciously artistic
than The Ramones, they nevertheless appealed to the same mentality
because of the way they turned rock conventions inside out and
celebrated kitschy pop culture with stylized stupidity. The band's first
four albums set the blueprint for punk, especially American punk and
hardcore, for the next two decades. And The Ramones themselves were
major figures for the next two decades, playing essentially the same
music without changing their style much at all. Although some punk
diehards including several of their peers would have claimed the band's
long career wound up undercutting the ideals the band originally stood
for, The Ramones always celebrated not just the punk aesthetic, but the
music itself.
Based in the Forest Hills section of Queens, NY, The Ramones formed in
1974. Originally, the band was a trio consisting of Joey Ramone (vocals,
drums; born Jeffrey Hyman, May 19, 1951), Johnny Ramone (guitar; born
John Cummings, Oct. 8, 1951), and Dee Dee Ramone (bass; born Douglas
Colvin, Sept. 18, 1951), with Tommy Ramone (born Tom Erdelyi, Jan. 29,
1952) acting as the group's manager. All of the group's members adopted
the last name "Ramone" and dressed in torn blue jeans and leather
jackets, in homage to '50s greaser rockers. The group played their first
concert on March 30, 1974, at New York's Performance Studio. Two months
after the show, Joey switched to vocals and Tommy became the band's
drummer. By the end of the summer, The Ramones earned a residency at
CBGB's. For the next year, they played regularly at the nightclub,
earning a dedicated cult following and inspiring several other artists
to form bands with similar ideals. All of The Ramones sets clocked in at
about 20 minutes, featuring an unrelenting barrage of short, barely
two-minute songs. By the end of 1975, The Ramones secured a recording
contract with Sire; discounting Patti Smith, they were the first New
York punk band to sign a contract.
Early in 1976, The Ramones recorded their debut album for just over
6,000 dollars. The resulting album, Ramones, was released in the spring,
gained some critical attention, and managed to climb to 111 on the U.S.
album charts. On July 4, the band made their debut appearance in
Britain, where their records were becoming a big influence on a new
generation of bands. Throughout 1976, The Ramones toured constantly,
inaugurating nearly 20 years of relentless touring. By the end of the
year, the group released their second album, Ramones Leave Home. While
the album just scraped the U.S. charts, Leave Home became a genuine hit
in England in the spring of 1977, peaking at number 48. By the summer of
1977, the Sex Pistols and The Ramones were seen as the two key bands in
the punk rock revolution, but where the Pistols imploded, The Ramones
kept on rolling. Following the U.K. Top 40 hit "Sheena Is a Punk
Rocker," The Ramones released their third album, Rocket to Russia, in
the fall of 1977.
Tommy Ramone left the band in the spring of 1977, although he produced
the group's subsequent album. He was replaced by former Voidoid Marc
Bee, who immediately changed his name to Marky Ramone. With their new
drummer in place, The Ramones recorded their fourth album, Road to Ruin,
which was released in the fall. Road to Ruin marked the band's first
significant attempt to change their sound; not only were there stronger
bubblegum, girl group, surf, and '60s pop influences on the music, it
was the first of their albums to run over a half hour. Although their
sound was more accessible, it didn't gain the band a noticeably larger
following. Neither did Rock N' Roll High School, the 1979 Roger Corman
film in which The Ramones had a pivotal part. The soundtrack to Rock N'
Roll High School and the U.K.-only live album It's Alive were the band's
only releases of 1979. For most of the year, they were in the studio
recording their fifth album with legendary '60s pop producer Phil
Spector. The title song to the Corman movie was the first track released
from the sessions, although the soundtrack album did feature a number
of older Ramones songs remixed by Spector. End of the Century, the
Spector-produced Ramones album, finally appeared in January of 1980 to
mixed reviews. Despite the lukewarm reception to the album, the record's
cover of the Ronettes' "Baby I Love You" became their only Top Ten
British hit; in America, none of the singles made an impact, although
the record became their biggest hit, peaking at number 44.
The Ramones continued their attempts at crossover success with their
sixth album, Pleasant Dreams, which was released in 1981. Featuring a
production by former Hollies and 10cc member Graham Gouldman, the record
was a commercial disappointment in both America and England. The band
was relatively quiet during 1982, spending most of their time touring.
In the spring of 1983, the band returned with Subterranean Jungle, which
was produced by Ritchie Cordell and Glen Koltkin, the heads of the
American indie label Beserkley Records. Not only did Subterranean Jungle
fail to gain the band the larger audience they desired, it continued
the erosion of the band's diehard fan base, as well as their decline in
the eyes of many rock critics. Following the album's release, Marky
Ramone left the band; he was replaced by Richard Beau, a former member
of the Velveteens, who changed his name to Richie Ramone.
With 1984's Too Tough to Die, The Ramones delivered a belated response
to America's burgeoning hardcore punk scene that was largely produced by
Tommy Erdelyi. The album helped restore their artistic reputation, as
did the 1985 single, "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg," an attack on President
Ronald Reagan's 1985 visit to Germany. Instead of continuing with the
sound of Too Tough to Die, The Ramones began pursuing a more
streamlined, stylized, and conventional take on their songwriting
formula with 1986's Animal Boy. This was a direction the group followed
for the remaining ten years of their career. Following the release of
1987's Halfway to Sanity, Richie Ramone left the band and Marky Ramone
re-joined the group. In 1988, the career retrospective Ramones Mania
appeared. In 1989, The Ramones contributed the theme song to the Stephen
King movie Pet Semetary, and the track was included on Brain Drain,
which was released in the summer of that year. After its release, the
group's bassist, Dee Dee Ramone, left the band to pursue a career as a
rapper called Dee Dee King; after his debut rap recording failed
miserably, he formed the band Chinese Dragons. Dee Dee was replaced by
C.J. Ramone (born Christopher John Ward).
In the early '90s, The Ramones sobered up, with both Joey and Marky
undergoing treatment for alcoholism. The band returned to recording in
1992, first releasing the live Loco Live and then Mondo Bizarro, their
first studio album in three years. Mondo Bizarro turned out to be a
commercial failure, as did their 1994 covers album, Acid Eaters.
Following the release of Acid Eaters, the mainstream guitar rock
audience in America finally embraced punk rock, in the form of young
bands like Green Day and the Offspring. Sensing that the climate may
have been right for the crossover success they had desired for so many
years, The Ramones immediately followed Acid Eaters with Adios Amigos,
claiming that unless the new album sold in substantial numbers, the band
would call it quits after a final farewell tour. Adios Amigos only
spent two weeks in the charts. Nevertheless, The Ramones embarked on a
long farewell tour that ran throughout the rest of 1995. The band was
set to split in the beginning of 1996 when they were offered a slot on
the sixth Lollapalooza, and they toured with the festival that summer.
Following the completion of the tour, The Ramones parted ways, 20 years
after the release of their first album. Just a few years later, Joey
Ramone passed away on April 15, 2001, at age 49, the victim of lymphoma.
Little more than a year after Joey's death, Dee Dee Ramone was found
dead in his home in Los Angeles on June 5, 2002. Johnny Ramone passed
away two years later on September 15, 2004 after a long battle with
