Alright Punkers, I am back with the final chapter of my exploration of the “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth Of Punk” exhibit that is currently on display at the Queens Museum. As you’ve seen in the previous two installments, I have been very thorough and am bringing you pretty much everything since a lot of our readers are no where near NYC and cannot come to see this for themselves. I’m picking up where I left off and that is with those European tour posters. Ready? “1, 2, 3, 4!!!”

Hey there readers and welcome to our latest adventure. This particular narrative is something that I have wanted to do for a few months already but there just wasn’t time for me to squeeze it in properly. The “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth Of Punk” exhibit at the Queens Museum opened up in April of this year and will run until the end of July. Its a wonderful collection of Ramones photographs, clothing, instruments, music and assorted other memorabilia. The timing of the opening worked well with the bands 40th Anniversary of their debut album. I raised a glass to that milestone record in a post that you can find HERE. Below is one of the murals outside of the exhibit and I’ll be making my way inside in a moment. Let’s absorb the greatness of that classic logo.
The next few images give you the overall premise of the exhibit. I aimed at being quite thorough for this one and as result have a LOT of photographs to show you. With so many of our readers being over in places like Finland and South America and unable to come all that distance to see something like this I felt it was best to snap as much as possible. So without any further adieu, presenting “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth Of Punk”. I’ll be chiming in occasionally but not as much as I might in other posts.
