SXSW Official Showcase: 40 Years of the Ramones

Ramones were loud and fast — and gloriously so, from the moment of their inception in Forest Hills, New York, in 1974, until their final concert, 2,263, in Los Angeles on Aug. 6, 1996. They were prolific — releasing 21 studio and live albums between 1976 and 1996 — and professional, typically cutting all of the basic tracks for one of those studio LPs in a matter of days. And they were fun, rock & roll’s most reliable Great Night Out for nearly a quarter of a century. As part of the GRAMMY Museum’s Musical Milestones series, and in conjunction with the April 10 opening of Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk at the Queens Museum in New York, this showcase will commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Ramones’ self-titled debut album, and examine their lasting effect on international pop culture.
