The Ramones FINALLY getting the love they deserve!

The Ramones FINALLY getting the love they deserve!

I am a lifelong fan of The Ramones. They are a pivotal part of not only the punk rock scene in America, but without them, bands like Green Day, Sum 41, Rancid, Offspring and so many others, would not exist.

As much as it drives me crazy that the iconic Ramones logo t-shirt has become trendy and can be picked up at places like Hot Topic, and most kids that are buying the shirts couldn’t name ONE Ramones song; I am beyond stoked that a bio-pic is on the way. I’m even more stoked to know that Martin Scorsese is behind it.

Scorsese has been making movies since his first short in 1959 and with films like The Departed, Casino, Gangs of New York, Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Mean Streets….the list goes on. Between directing and producing, Scorsese is a HUGE music fan. He knows his music well…have you ever paid attention to the tunes in Goodfellas? Or The Departed?  I couldn’t be more excited to see what Martin does for The Ramones. A band that is so important to music, past, present and most certainly future, they deserve to have their story told. And there is no better man to do so.
