Queens is known for a lot of things: authentic food, tons of culture, and lots of cool things to do

But one of the best things to come out of this borough, undoubtedly, The Ramones. You may have heard of them... 

All four members grew up in Forest Hills, and the Queens Museum has decided to commemorate their influential and wildly successful careers as rock and roll pioneers. 

In partnership with Los Angeles' GRAMMY Museum and in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the band's first album, the Queens Museum will present an exhibit that showcases the impact The Ramones had on music and culture in America. 

The exhibition will be appropriately titled Hey! Ho! Let's Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk and will focus on the effect that growing up in Queens had on the band members as people as well as musicians. 

It will also detail their journey to musical success and their many milestones along the way.

Throughout the exhibit you'll also be able to get a peek at super rad stuff like original lyric manuscripts, concert posters, and a collection of photos of the band throughout their career.


The Ramones didn't only have a major influence on the music scene, but on culture in general.


So if you're a music fan, be sure to check out the exhibit at the Queens Museum while you can; it's being presented from April 10th all the way through July 31st.
