Intersection To Be Named For Joey Ramone

NOVEMBER 28TH, 2003

The corner of the Bowery and Second Street will soon be called "Joey Ramone Way."

The city will honor the late front man of the seminal punk band The Ramones by unveiling a street sign this Sunday at 1 p.m. The block is home to the CBGB nightclub where the band rose to fame.

The club will host a reception after the dedication.

The Ramones are considered by many to be the original punk band, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year.

Joey Ramone died of cancer in April 2001.

This makes me so nostalgic for my dance-all-night college days.

Rest in pizza, Joey.

I can't get "She's the One" out of my head now. It was always my favorite Ramones song.

Yes they did. And loudly too!

Oh well. When I go deaf in about twenty years, I will still be able to hear the Ramones in my head.

Just having some fun. I saw Joey at Sam Ash in Manhattan a while back and that was what I remembered about him most. No wonder he kept his hair long. They rock(ed).

"Hey, ho, let's go." Joey didn't know it, but he sang about "ho's" way back before rappers!

R.I.P., bad boy of nonstop New York rock.

You know, all I saw was the headline of this thread in the sidebar, and I came over here figuring that the City in its usual idiocy had decided to put the sign up on the street in Forest Hills where he grew up ... I was specifically going to post, "Morons! If it's anywhere besides Bowery and 2nd, it's wrong!"

Nice to know they got it right for once.

Also, would you guys believe that Keef Richards is supposedly something of a conservative?!

Joey Ramone may be the only guy in Simpsons history so pale that they couldn't draw him as yellow!

I don't think "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg" was exactly a sneering condemnation of Reagan Administration policy. This is the RAMONES we're talking about here. It was about chords and silly lyrics.

From what I've read, Johnny made the band rename the single "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg" For album release because he was a Reagan supporter. It may have been on the liner notes to the Ramones Mania compilation but I'm at work and can't check it out.
There was a much greater conservative/libertarian contingent in the earlier days...

I saw the Ramones in 1978 or '79. They opened for Black Sabbath and appeared at the Orange Show Auditorium in San Bernardino. They threw their instruments down and walked off the stage, because the jarheads(no offense guys)were heaving beer bottles and whiskey bottles on stage. This was back when you could actually get *that close*. I was actually touching the stage during both bands performances!

Those were the days!!!!

If they got it wrong, we could have always gone down there and "Beat On The Brat". ;-)
