Ramones exhibition in NYC: "Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk"

1-2-3-4! In 1976 the self-titled debut album by NYC's finest punk rock band The Ramones hit the shops. To commemorate its release the Queens Museum will host the "Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk" exhibition. All four original members grew up in Forest Hills, Queens. Their high energy short songs were revelation. They never changed their style and built a huge catalog of memorable songs that still resonate in today's garage rock circles.

On display are a wealth of posters, cartoon drawings, T-shirts and other memorabilia. The exhibition opens on April 10.

On a side note: there is permanent Ramones Museum in Berlin. No Grammy involvement like the one in Queens or corporate sponsorhsips plastering their logo all over the place, but a place for fans run by fans.
