End of the Century
Starting with the band's origins in Forest Hills, Queens, End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones gives a fascinating background portrait of the eccentric group of individuals who came together to be one of the most influential punk bands in history. This documentary about the New York City renegades who made their mark in the mid-1970s with counterculture lyrics and underground performances at rundown joints like CBGB on the Bowery, shows how the band eventually earned recognition, even being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002. But it is the insider look at the blue collar upbringing of the band members, and their desire to be part of Manhattan's burgeoning hard-rock scene, that is most endearing about this particular film.
The history of the Queens, New York punk rock band, the Ramones.
From Library Staff
When the Ramones recorded their debut album in 1976, it heralded the true birth of punk rock. They gave voice to the disaffected youth of the seventies and eighties, influenced countless bands, and inspired the counterculture for decades to come.
