When I was a kid growing up in the '60s, music was an outlet for enlightenment, frustration, rebellion. It was more about individualism. Today it's just like a big business.
All punk is is attitude. That's what makes it. The attitude.
To me, punk is about being an individual and going against the grain and standing up and saying 'This is who I am'.
I enjoyed my life when I had nothing... and kinda like the idea of just being happy with me.
I mean, like, rock n' roll was always about spirit and fun.
Rock n' roll is very special to me. It's my lifeblood.
We always stayed true to what the Ramones are.
The Ramones own the fountain of youth. Experiencing us is like having the fountain of youth.
To me, John Lennon and Elvis Presley were punks, because they made music that evoked those emotions in people.
Well, I think we're the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world.
The Eagles and the Captain and Tennille ruled the airwaves, and we were the answer to it.
Everybody's just emulated us and now everybody just kinda takes our sound as their foundations.
When a band like Blondie re-forms, you wish them the best.
For better or worse, MTV sort of bridges the whole country together almost like the BBC does in England. It's opened up everything so wide that it's possible for everyone to have different ideas.
There's nobody as good as the Ramones, never will be. I mean everybody's just emulated us and now everybody just kinda takes our sound as their foundations.
