Once seen as a punk joke, The Ramones eventually came to be taken seriously, influencing almost every garage rocker that succeeded them. The story of the band from Queens is the paradigm rock saga - a litany of drugs, fallings-out, financial catastrophes, inter-band rivalries, bad management and death. This is a warts-and-all rock biography.

The Ramones cut an unforgettable swathe through decades of popular music. With politically charged anger, raw sounds and ferocious 20 minute sets they undercut the glamour of the mainstream music industry and gave the punk movement an authentic voice – A voice which can still be heard echoing through the decades.

Seen through the eyes of the people who were there - musicians, managers, producers, publicists - this insightful biography depicts the Ramones rebellion against the establishment, how they forged their unique voice against the pressures of censure and managed to stay honest until the bitter end.

Updated to reflect the sad death of guitarist Johnny Ramone, this is the essential story of the punk scene's most durable and influential band.
