End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones (documentary)
Published on Apr 17, 2013
In 1974, the New York City music scene was shocked into consciousness by a band of misfits from Queens called The Ramones. Playing in a seedy Bowery bar to a small group of fellow struggling musicians, the band struck a dissonant chord that rocked the foundation of the 70’s music scene. This quartet of unlikely rock stars connected with the disenfranchised everywhere, sparking a movement that would resonate with generations of outcasts across the globe. Although The Ramones never reached the top of the charts, they endured in the face of fleeting success and crushing interpersonal conflicts by maintaining a rigorous touring schedule for more than 22 years. Tracing the history of the band over three decades from its unlikely origins through its bitter demise, END OF THE CENTURY is a vibrant, candid document of one of the most influential and well-loved groups in the history of rock.
