COMMENTS BY THE RAMONES FANS, WHY RAMONES IS ALWAYS THE BEST BAND IN A WORLD:

Because they're.... RAMONES RULE!: Andy, 21, Canada

You can't come to be Ramone, we born to be Ramone: (Jari-Pekka, 18, FINLAND) (I'VE DONE THIS HOMEPAGE)

The Ramones crushed cheesy, over-synthed pop music with one blow. They Took rock&roll back to the streets.
(Andrew Sowerby, 17, CANADA)

I met Joey twice (once in 92 at a record signing and once in 95 at a show) and both times I looked him dead in the eye and said "Hey, Joey". Both times he replied (and I quote) "uh". There is nothing better than a grunt that is meant just for you. In a world where heroes are lost it is nice to know that some in the spot-light still care enough to recognize the fans (even if it's incoherent).
(Sean, 23, USA)

The Ramones are the greatest Band in the World, because: 1.Absolutly every song is a great Hit! 2.They are the coolest men who ever wrothe any songs 3. They are simply THE BEST!
(Florian Rück, 16, GERMANY)

I love the ramones. Everybody loves the ramones. yu should see my room. it's covered in ramones pictures from everywhere, posters... it's also up there with Screeching Weasel... that reminds me... Ben Weasel from screeching weasel wrote an article in mrr (maximumrocknroll) once about his Punk Rock Dress Code. He went on for a while about leather jackets and boots (not doc's aparently) and jeans, but then at the end, he finished up saying something liek "if you don't like the ramones and think they are the best band ever or put ANY band above the ramones, you're not a punk, your not even fucking close. come july i'll be buying insurance from you" anyways... i guess thats all.
(Adriane, 14, USA)

ES LA BANDA MAS ORIGINAL Y SENCILLA QUE HAY. LOS ADMIRO MUCHO POR CREAR ESE ESTILO Y SOBRE TO A JONNY COMO TOCA LA GUITARRA. LASTIMA QUE NUNCA VINIERON A VENEZUELA Y QUE SE SEPARARAN. RAMONES NOT DEAD
(R, 18, VENEZUELA)

Los Ramones Son y Seguiran siendo siempre (forever) los mejores del mundo,los llevo en el alma y nunca los voy a olvidar porque son lo mas, lo mas, lo mas, lo mas,etc.RAMONES RAMONES RAMONES RAMONES.............................
(Fernando Stagno, 15, BRAZIL)

ES LA BANDA MAS ORIGINAL Y SENCILLA QUE HAY. LOS ADMIRO MUCHO POR CREAR ESE ESTILO Y SOBRE TO A JONNY COMO TOCA LA GUITARRA. LASTIMA QUE NUNCA VINIERON A VENEZUELA Y QUE SE SEPARARAN. RAMONES NOT DEAD
(R, 18, VENEZUELA)

Ramones is much more than a band, it's a feeling from heart. (Jorge, 24, ARGENTINA)

They started out as 4 hoodlums who couldn't play, and went on to revolutionize/revitalize Rock 'n' Roll! Everything about them is cool, and they never sold out! They were legends in their own time, and rightfully so. So many great albums/songs!!!! They lasted 25 years!!! To paraphrase Lou Reed; Their shit is better ! than other people's diamonds!!! (Joey, 26, USA)

The reason the Ramones are the best band can be answered in two sentences. #1. The Ramones saved rock and roll from certain doom. If you don't believe that, then just look back at the lousy music and over paid performers in the mid seventies. #2. The ramones also paved the road for most all the punk bands that fallowed. There albums are sort of like recipie books for cooking up Punk Rock. (Sara 20 & Courtney 26, USA)

They kept the spirit of r'n'r and they didn't let stardom eat them alive. they were the same as from the start, and everybody try to copy their style but indeed... (Martin, 28, CANADA)

They do their own thing,straight forward,no bullshit.(Christian, 25, NORWAY)

When I was growing up in the late '70's I listened to Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly etc because there was nothing new that out there. Heavy Metal was the fastest but it still had no fun beat you had to play like Led Zepplin to be in a band. The Ramones brought the energy and fun back. They showed that fun and creativity was more important than anything else. I used that information thoughout my life. (Dan, 30, USA)

The Ramones are the best because they're the only real rock n'roll band (they're rough, wild, punk, they don't give a shit, they have a cool name and they look cretin) (Samuel, 20, FRANCE)

Because it sing's and tells just what we think... (Gustavo, 17, BRAZIL)

I can't speak english very good, but ramones is the best because they have so different kind of music and you always now that hey this is ramones on the radio.
(Anne-Carita, 16, FINLAND)


The Ramones are the best band because they never changed their style,they invented the punk rock,bringing back the true rock 'n' roll. They're really great and I love them!GABBA GABBA HEY forever! (Matheus, BRAZIL, 16)

cause they were the first fuckin`punks, before jhonny rotten and sid vicious knew anything from music
(Enrique, SPAIN, 18)


Don't you EVER come and say they're not the best band... EVER! (???)

1 2 3 4 No compromise (Robin, 24, SWEDEN)

When i see the ramones for the first time, my "musical life" completely change I never see something better and i WILL never see something better. Their words talk to me as i 've said it! and their music is so fun. Everything is in the music of THE RAMONES. (Legrand, 23, FRANCE)

Because they have a high energy, their songs make us shake the head and sing with all the power !!!
(Mauricio and Juliana, BRAZIL 18 & 17)


Because very fast songs and the lyrics that say all. (Luiz, 16, BRAZIL)

They're the best because thy're fun. They Don't act as if they they are all so important & serious & deep. They do what they want to do because they want to- not because they are trying to make their music with deep rooted emotional and abstract messages. (Tim, 16, USA)

Because they respected the spirit of the punk rock. They never felt like changing the quality of the songs. They were and they are the best, they are RAMONES. (Ronaldo, 21, BRAZIL)

Energy!Energy!!Energy!!! The best live performers I've ever seen a night with the Ramones makes you forget all that is wrong in the world. (Brian, 28, USA)

Gabba Gabba Hey is the best "slogan" i've ever heard.(Tom, 18, BELGIUM)

Ramones are the best band because they speak about things that young people can relate to. Who the hell wants to grow up! They are the best punk band ever and they paved the way for many, many bands that are aroung right now. The are the best! (Jimmy, 20, USA)

Just because I keep feelin' good when I play Ramones' records or disks. I just can't get enough of them
(Christophe, 20, BELGIUM)

just because of the style of music, , perfomances, not changing style since years When I listen to them I always feel sth. Their music cannot be listened without engaging in it. You just enjoy it and feel better...(Adrianna, 21, POLAND)

The first 3 albums are the best rock ever recorded. Everytime I watch my bootlegs videos of the 70's, I just can't understand why they didn't sold billions of records. Johnny is the greatest performer ever and has the coolest haircut in the world. JOHNNY + JOEY + DEE DEE + TOMMY ARE GODS!!!!!!! (PZ, 20, BRAZIL)

Cause they understand the essentials of pure R 'n' Roll. No shit, no show. Just a 2 minute song and GO, GO, GO! (Floris, 29, HOLLAND)

Because they have influened every band that ever listened to them and because they never changed their style and way of thinkng And of course because they are the greatest, loudest, proudest band in the world especially on stage.
(Andreas, 19 GREECE)

Unanswerable. Too many reasons, the music, the feel... (Derek, 31, New Zealand)

just listen to them and you will know why! (Chris, 14, USA)

Because they're fun and they are only the greatest: (Marcello, 19, Italy)

They kept doin' the best punk for years!!! (Emanuele, 21, Italy)

Because they were the first. They started everything. The Ramones are punk, and punk is The Ramones: (Josh, 13, USA)

Their song's are everything you could want: exciting, fast, funny and GOOD: (Jared, 19, USA)

Ramones is best band because they don't play so it's not hard to listen on. They got many songs with good lyrics and they care about the fans. I love the Ramones...: (Mia, 19 Sweden)

Because I love their songs, I think that they're the most important band
in the whole story of Rock'N'Roll, 'cause if they doesn't exist, all the today's bands
will not exist too. They're simply FANTASTIC! GREAT! They're simply THE RAMONES: (Marcelo, 18, Brazil)

The Ramones are the best band because they invented Punk, didn't sell out, and are the most enjoyable:
(Rag Doll, 14, America)


The Ramones started real music: (Ville, 18, FINLAND)

the RAMONES know how to kick ass! They don't fuck around. they've stayed true to their
version of great rock 'n' roll for more than 20 years. LONG LIVE THE RAMONES!!!!!: (Gavin, 22, USA)

Because they're different, not boring, and have stuck to their style, never selling out. That, and the music is good...fast, hard, and fun. (Morganna, 22, USA)

They don't care who likes them. They sing about whatever they want. Joey Ramones is one of the sexiest men to ever walk the earth. (Noelle, 19, USA)

Short simple songs,NO guitar solos,easy to play,great live band,all around best band ever.Johnny Ramone is the coolest guitarist ever. (Dave, 24, CANADA)

Cause they rock and they aren't cock rock! (Anita, 20, New Zealand)

They proved, at least to me, that ANYONE can start a band, and still be really good. It doesn't always matter if you're not that talented if you can put on a good and exciting show, and write good songs. (Tim, 17, USA)

a)Because they are original.
b)Because they love their fans
c)Because they don't care 'bout money
d)Because they play good music (Pavlos, 15, GREECE)

The Ramones are the best band because they are one of the only bans that aren't posers, and they are the first punk band that wrote about stuff that can make you laugh, cry or just allow you to have a great time while you are listeng to them. That is what makes The Ramones the best band on earth. (Wendy, 18, USA)

Because the're the king of punk rock (Nelson, 19, BRAZIL)

Great music, great atmosphere, great live concerts the always stay the same but always fun like hell (really funny lyrics) (Tony, 25, BELGIUM)

They are 100% Pure Rock N Roll... there is nothing and will never be anything better. (Dave, 20, USA)
