Ramones Appreciate Nod From U2

Posted on Sunday, September 09 @ 13:11:40 CEST by macphisto

(Launch.com) -- The Ramones received acknowledgement at Thursday night's (September 6) MTV Video Music Awards from U2 singer Bono and the video channel.

The frontman said, "New York City has given us a lot of things, but the best thing it ever gave us was a punk rock group called the Ramones, without whom a lot of people would never have gotten started, certainly us. They lost Joey Ramone, and I would like to give an award to the remaining Ramones, who are going to appear in a very un-punk-rock situation right now."

The honor wasn't lost on drummer Marky Ramone. "I wanna thank all the fans and everybody that's supported us over the years and continuing support. Because in the beginning our music wasn't accepted and then eventually MTV started playing our videos and people who had the balls started playing our music. So we really appreciated that."

Ramone made his comments quick and left before being asked about late singer Joey Ramone.

Fans can check out The Ramones videos for "I Wanna Live," "I Want To Be Sedated," "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight)," "I Believe In Miracles," "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Strength To Endure," "Substitute," "Spider-Man," and "I Don't Want To Grow Up" on demand at LAUNCH.com.
