"..."I hear all these people saying the Ramones are breaking up," snorts Ben Weasel, the notoriously outspoken Chicago punk musician (cur- rently one-third of the extremely Ramones-ish Riverdales and formerly one-quarter of Screeching Weasel) and Maximum Rock `N' Roll columnist renowned for his Ramones fixation. "I say, `Bullshit!' The Ramones aren't breaking up! The Ramones are saying, `Show us you love us! Buy a million records, and then we'll stick around!'"..."

Ramones at 40 / Slash: A Punk Magazine From Los Angeles, 1977-80
Ramones at 40 / Slash: A Punk Magazine From Los Angeles, 1977-80
Music Review  December 8, 2016, by Tim Stegall
"...Release of the Ramones' self-titled debut predates both those events, so as veteran journalist Martin Popoff notes, "Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, and Tommy set a standard for short, shocking punk composition and disposition for years to come." In Ramones at 40, the Canadian writer constructs a concise history of the band and pinpoints their impact and influence on culture at large, detailing the delicate interpersonal relationships within the band, the craftsmanship behind the songs, stage show, and image, and the intense fandom the Ramones continue to inspire. Graphically and photographically exciting, it's one of the most worthy literary endeavors taken in Da Brudders' name...."

Film Review  April 30, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...After all, as George Hickenlooper’s immensely engrossing documentary reveals over and over, the diminutive, shy, pageboy-banged gnome of late-night L.A. introduced the city – and by extension, the country – to future icons David Bowie, the Beatles, the entire glam movement, the entire punk movement, the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, Blondie, Oasis, Coldplay, and almost any other band you can think of that matters..."

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
Animated Jimmy saves Retroville from the aliens.
Film Review  December 21, 2001, by Kimberley Jones
"...Neutron covers all the requisite life-lesson bases -- think big, believe in yourself, parents really do know best; although one might balk at a few of the characterizations (the only black girl in a prominent part is never without her hip-hop-blasting headphones; Jimmy's best friend, Carl Wheezer, is fat and asthmatic, which might give impressionable kiddies the idea that Jimmy must be a hero for befriending such a slob). Still, minor offenses from a minor, but genial, holiday treat -- and bonus points for evening out the Top 40 soundtrack with the Ramones and the Go-Go's..."

Ramones 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (Sire/Rhino)
Music Story  December 15, 2016, by Tim Stegall
"...Ramones, released April 26, 1976, remains one of rock & roll's most important albums. It certainly established punk's permanent blueprint: chain-saw guitar, breakneck tempos, reductionist songwriting reconfiguring classic pop DNA, and 2:30 time ceilings..."

Music Review  July 13, 2001, by Greg Beets
"...RamonesRamones (Warner Archives/Rhino), Leave Home (Warner Archives/Rhino), Rocket to Russia (Warner Archives/Rhino), Road to Ruin (Warner Archives/Rhino) It's now accepted as common knowledge that the Ramones kicked off the slow-burning punk revolution, saving greater rock & roll from the flatulent bacchanal it had become in the mid-Seventies. Yet beneath Johnny's chainsaw guitar, Dee Dee's hoarse "1-2-3-4!" and the late Joey's paeans to pinheads and glue sniffers was a genuine reverence for Top 40's golden era that was missing from most of the bands that sprung up in the Queens quartet's wake..."

Joey Ramone is dead
Music Column  April 20, 2001, by Ken Lieck
"...Easter Sunday's announcement that the deadbeat Dad of American punk rock had expired, hot on the heels of a vague announcement that the 49-year-old singer was in the hospital (where so many of his songs were set) being treated for lymphatic cancer, still has many people looking like they've just gone through shock treatment. Joey (real name Jeffrey Hyman) would be happy to know that in death he has already caused a ruckus much like that he raised in life; upon hearing of Joey's passing, local poster artist Billy Perkins asked himself, and 101X, "Do we have a true alternative radio station in this town or not?" In an e-mail missive sent to several big guns at the LBJ-S radio station family plus a few print media types, Perkins announced, "I intend to hijack 101X for the first half of the Flashback Lunch hour to play a tribute to the Ramones..."

Austin's Hoot Night Tradition
Music Story  January 17, 1997, by Tim Stegall
"...Innovator Michael Hall then set another precedent when he organized the first Hoot-with-a-theme, this one being an all train songs affair. Soon, theme Hoots ruled the game, either as topical ones (ala the Train Songs Hoot, or the Seventies Hard Rock Hoot, with lovingly sloppy renditions of your favorite Z-28-and-a-hash-pipe classics performed by the locals) or in salute to bands both classic (Led Zeppelin, Ramones, etc.) or dubious ("Yeah, there was probably an Archies Hoot Night," sneers Escovedo)..."

"...Austin Chronicle: You’d been a professional musician for over a decade by the time you joined the Ramones: Two albums with pioneering heavy metal trio Dust, proto-punk glam rock in Wayne County & the Backstreet Boys, obviously Richard Hell & the Voidoids.

If you haven't yet, crank up the stereo with your fave Ramones tune (if Cindy Toth hadn't sold my 8-track of Rock & Roll High School, that would be my first choice), and keep it going until your next door neighbor gives Lt..."

Joey Ramone
Music Review  March 29, 2002, by Greg Beets
"...Joey RamoneDon't Worry About Me (Sanctuary/BMG) While Don't Worry About Me couldn't possibly measure up to the Ramones' first three albums, Joey Ramone's solo debut is at least more compelling than most of the band's latter-day output, and that would still be true even without the sad poignancy of the singer's death from lymphoma last year. Produced in piecemeal fashion by Daniel Rey whenever Ramone was well enough, the disc blasts off with a joyous punk rendition of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" that interpolates the Sex Pistols' "Pretty Vacant" as an unlikely but effective foundation..."

There’s mention of Kinsey frequently ditching classes, and she wears a testy teenager’s attitude on her sleeve – needlessly, as it turns out, since the rest of her torso is covered throughout the entire film by an emblematic Ramones T-shirt..."

Music Review  December 7, 2017, by Tim Stegall
"...In 1976, the Ramones reduced rock & roll to a high-speed chase defining both them and punk rock. On the releases that bookended the genre's mythic year of arrival, 1977, January's Leave Home and November's Rocket to Russia, da brudders' methodology was perfected...."
