The Ramones

Infamously known as the band who defined punk music, The Ramones formed in 1974. Coming from Queens, New York, the group found their break at CBGB. Spanning over the next 22 years, The Ramones played all over the world and had major influence on the punk scene— both in the U.S. and the U.K.

Of the original band members, Joey Ramone was the lead singer, Dee Dee Ramone played bass, Johnny Ramone played lead guitar, and Tommy Ramone was the drummer. Although they all have the same last name, none of the band members were related.

The group formally disbanded by 1996
