Ramones were one of the most influential bands to come out of New York City's growing punk scene in the mid-'70s. Thing is, they never really considered themselves punks; their main influences were garage rock, girl groups and AM radio hits of the '60s. They loved surf music and songs that clocked in at less than two and a half minutes. And even though they never sold a ton of records, they influenced generations of rock 'n' roll kids who heard them. Sadly, the group's four original members (Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy) have all died. But their legacy remains in three-chord guitar music played by indie, rock and metal bands.
