Tommy Ramone, a co-founder of the seminal punk band the Ramones and the last surviving member of the original group, has died. Tommy co-founded the Ramones in 1974 in New York along with singer Joey Ramone, bassist DeeDee and guitarist Johnny Ramone. The band influenced a generation of rockers, and their hit songs 'I wanna be sedated' and 'Blitzkrieg Bop,' among others, earned them an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

In 1974, the New York City music scene was shocked into consciousness by the violently new and raw sound of a band of misfits from Queens called the Ramones. Playing in a seedy Bowery bar to a small group of fellow struggling musicians, the band struck a chord of disharmony that rocked the foundation of the mid-seventies music scene. This quartet of unlikely rock stars traveled across the country and around the world connecting with the disenfranchised everywhere, while sparking a movement that would resonate with two generations of outcasts across the globe. Although the band never reached the Billboard charts, they managed to endure in face of fleeting success and crushing interpersonal conflicts by maintaining a rigorous touring schedule for twenty-two years. Tracing the history of the band, from its unlikely origins, through its star-crossed career, bitter demise and the sad fates of Joey and Dee Dee, End of the Century is a vibrant, candid document of one of the most influential groups in the history of rock.
