Ramones Debut Record FINALLY Goes Gold in the US
If you’re making a list of the most influential bands of all time, the Ramones have to be somewhere in the Top 5. Incredibly, though, they never sold a lot of records during their 22 years together. The band was kept alive by touring, merch sales and the occasional licensing deal. Their best-selling record? Ramones Mania, a greatest hit collection which managed to break the the 500,000 mark in the US. That’s their only gold record.
