Joey Ramone commented following for the www.knac.com.
"Hey All! Concerning the Ramones reuniting to record a new song and make an appearance in the film Too Tough to Die - it's true. The film sounds pretty wild and over the top, a punk rock thriller. German filmmaker Ali Eckert approached us two years ago. Being totally skeptic, he came by my house and gave me a verbal synapse of the film, in which I was very impressed. We've all met with him at this point. He's a big fan with a unique vision. If he can pull this off, it could really be something special. A lot of cool artists and actors have agreed to appear. Let's see what happens and hope for the best."
