"A band like the Ramones doesn't come along once in a lifetime. They come along once." So said Sire Records' Seymour Stein of the band he signed in 1976, and, in doing so, changed music forever. Few bands have ever had the impact the biker-jacket wearing, brat-beating band of (fake) brothers had on rock and roll... and all of those bands sold far more records (except maybe the Velvet Underground).

They aren't even the most famous band to attend Forest Hills, Queens High School (that distinction goes to Simon & Garfunkel). So, it's understandable that, despite the legacy and lasting impact of the Ramones, it can be hard to separate fact from fiction.

Missed 2, but I'll admit I had to guess on a few of them. I've seen the SNL episode where Costello plays Radio Radio, didn't know he was playing for the Ramones (playing for the Sex Pistols). Damn, what would have happened if they HAD played SNL?Kevin Johnson from Hell
I took this knowing that I was going to blow it big time...and I only got 2 wrong!Karen from Manchester, Nh
For someone who listens to them from a totally different era, I did ok with 6/12 ... at least I passed ;)Theresa from Australia
Wow 11 out of 12. the only question i got wrong was August 16, 1974: The Ramones become the first rock band to play the legendary NYC punk club CBGB.Nick from Brantford
Eight out of twelve correct. Not bad for someone who went to elementary school with Joey.Lewis from Long Island Ny
The second question is misleading because technically they never did win a Grammy "during their career." It was only years after 3/4 original members were dead that they received one. And yes, I am calling you out on this technicality because it was the only one I got wrong.Kevin from Chicago
Just to be accurate, you are not considered Absent without Leave (AWOL) from the Marines. You are declared "UA" (Unauthorized Absence). that is the only one I got wrong.Jim from North Billerica, Ma
