End of the Century: The Ramones/Joe Strummer Rocks Again! (#621)

In 1974, a new sound hit New York City's underground music scene: a band of misfits called The Ramones. This film follows this quartet of unlikely rock stars, known as the progenitors of punk, through more than two decades of touring, recording and bickering - from a shared Queens childhood to their 2002 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Producers: Jim Fields and Michael Gramaglia. Rock icon and former legendary frontman for The Clash, Joe Strummer is hot on the comeback trail, touring America and Japan via concert footage and interviews before his untimely death in 2002.
