Never Mind the Death of Joey Ramone, Punk Anarchy Lives On
The death of Ramone, a true punk rock pioneer and prophet, is yet another blow to the culture and music popularized by the likes of Sid Vicious and his band the Sex Pistols in the late '70s and early '80s -- before glam-metal began dominating the airwaves. His death prompts us to reflect on punk rock music -- what it is, where it's been, what it means and, most of all, where it's going.
