* HarshVocals: Richie Ramone sings exlusively in this style in his solo material. It could probably best be described as "Joey Ramone meets Music/HenryRollins".

* DarkerAndHeavier: The albums that Richie Ramone performed on (''Too Tough to Die'', ''Animal Boy'' and ''Halfway to Sanity'') are much heavier musically than the band's earlier albums, and featured songs with some pretty dark lyrics.

A very happy home\\

* CoolShades: Joey and Tommy. Joey's, coupled with the mane of hair framing his face, became iconic in their own right.

* CoolShades: Joey and Tommy. Joey's, coupled with the mane of hair framing his face, became iconic in their own right. Dee Dee began wearing them regularly in the 80s, as did Marky. In fact, Johnny was the only member of the band who never wore them.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}} Joey's first line in "I Believe in Miracles" is "I used to be on an endless run. Believe in miracles 'cause I'm one.". Years later, Music/{{U2}} would release a song called "The Miracle of Joey Ramone".

** Within the Ramones' music itself, "Judy Is A Punk" references "I'm Henry VIII, I Am" by Herman's Hermits, of all songs. "Second verse, same as the first!!"

* DysfunctionJunction: And ''fucking'' '''''how'''''. They could be a runner-up of how screwed up everyone was with Music/XJapan! While on stage, the Ramones had the unity of brothers and the like, off stage, fights would happen back and forth and Joey and Johnny would be at each others throats. The fact they stayed together for 22 years is a miracle and even then the DownerEnding over how unappreciated the band was until ''after'' Joey passed away makes it more depressing. And that's not even going into the later deaths of Dee Dee, Johnny, and Tommy.
