* ''Music/{{Ramones}},'' ''Music/LeaveHome,'' ''Music/RocketToRussia,'' and ''Music/RoadToRuin'' are generally considered their best albums.
* While their mid-to-late 80s output is a little hit or miss, ''everyone'' likes 1984's ''Too Tough To Die.''
* ''It's Alive!'' A candidate for one of the best live albums ever, it's the original lineup in London, England, just tearing it up for nearly an hour. It set a trend for later (and, notably, ''faster'') live albums in that most of the time, as soon as one song would end, Deedee would immediately shout ''"[[CatchPhrase ONETWOTHREEFOUR!!!]]"'' and they'd go right into another one without so much as catching their breath.

* Their first British concert on July 4, 1976, the United States Bicentennial. Before the performance, the band hung out with fans including members of Music/TheSexPistols and Music/TheClash. During their encounter, Clash bassist Paul Simonon explained that his band had not played a show yet because they felt they were not good enough. Johnny Ramone responded, "We stink. You don't have to be good, just get out there and play." And so Punk was well and truly born.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' included the video for "I Wanna Be Sedated". Usually Beavis and Butthead mock the video as it plays; the Ramones were one of the few bands to make them shut up and just rock out.

* Their appearance on WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons is both awesome and [[Funny/TheRamones hilarious]].

* Their appearance on WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons is both awesome and [[Funny/TheRamones hilarious]]. The band plays a birthday song for Mr Burns and basically give him and everyone else the middle finger by voicing their displeasure of having to play the gig. After the song, CJ delivers a line that leaves Mr Burns, a man who people are usually terrified of, shaking in fear:
--> '''CJ:''' Go to hell, you old bastard!

* One could say their entire existence. There were other bands like Music/{{Television}} that were creating the punk movement, but the Ramones made it ''fun''. They also codified how the songs had to be fast, blunt and to the point indeed, some of their all-time greatest songs are over within two minutes. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramones#Influence They also influenced bands]] from Music/BlackFlag, Music/TheClash, Music/TheDamned, the Music/DeadKennedys, to metal bands like Music/{{Motorhead}} and Music/{{Metallica}}, {{Grunge}} bands like Music/{{Nirvana}} and Music/{{L7}}, Music/{{U2}}...
