Starting small sometime in the mid 70's, these guys invented Punk and mastered their game in no time. Their famous short gigs with a lot of songs continue to inspire bands up to this date.
I like the fact that they got fed up with the current trend in rock music. At the time, Hard Rock artists played the guitar in the hardest way possible, while Prog Rockers wanted to write complex songs. The Ramones just said screw that. They kept it as simple as possible.
My top 5 songs:
-Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World
-I Wanna Be Sedated
-Bonzo Goes to Bitburg
(the order is just chronological)
