RAMONES

RAMONES

The Ramones were an American musical group from  Queens,  New York City. They are considered as a prototype of the punk bands, although the term punk as a genre designation became later popular in connection with a British subculture. They created in the mid-seventies, probably unintentionally, a new musical direction, as they produced an aversion against the then rock music in the era of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

Their music was based on a few models such as The Who, The Kinks, The Beach Boys, the Stooges, MC5 and the American Rock 'n'roll of the 1950s. Typical were simple harmonies, and structures, and the total lack of solos, intros or transitions. They  formed the complete antithesis of styles such as art rock, progressive rock and fusion. As simple as the composition, and the lyrics were held, often reminiscent of nursery rhymes in their subject. But specific reference to social problems and issues were received in the 1970s.
