Ramones was founded in Queens, New York in 1974 and is considered the first player in the world to play punk rock. The unrelated members of the group bore the artistic nicknames “Ramon,” which gave the group its name. In 1976, thanks to the concerts of this band in Great Britain, the English punk scene was born. Ramones played together until 1996. Today, none of the group’s founders is alive. Joy Ramon died in 2001 due to cancer of the lymph system.
