Ramones at 40

Martin Popoff

In February of 1976 New York’s finest, the Ramones, released the first punk album of all time — Ramones — in the process serving up the purest of punk templates, and changing rock history forever. Ramones at 40 celebrates the band’s 40-year anniversary by adding to the considerable cache of Ramones scholarship in a fresh and engaging manner. By turn, academic, substantial, and provocatively tangential, the text by acclaimed author Martin Popoff includes interviews with key figures, and is illustrated with a wide range of visuals, from photos and art to memorabilia. Features in each chapter — for example on the nascent punk scene, on the key clubs, on influential figures such as John Holmstrom and his Punk magazine — complete the story. A full discography is included, all making Ramones at 40 a must-have addition to any Ramones’ fan’s library
