Happy 40th: Ramones, Ramones
If you’re looking for proof that punk rock never dies, then you need look no further than this fact: the Ramones’ self-titled debut album is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and the band is still as popular as ever, despite the fact that this year also celebrates the 20th anniversary of the band’s dissolution.

Rhino Factoids
36 years ago today, Genesis surprised their Los Angeles fans in two ways: they announced that they’d be playing an unexpected show at a very intimate venue, and when the tickets went on sale, they were situated squarely in the box office, selling the tickets themselves.

Out Now: Deep Purple, Machine Head: 40th Anniversary Edition
Remember how last month we offered up a 35th anniversary reissue of Deep Purple’s Come Taste the Band and had to explain that it wasn’t actually the 35th anniversary of the album but, rather, that it had come out at that time in the UK and was only just now coming out in the US?

Happy Birthday, Joey Ramone
Today would’ve been Joey Ramone’s 65th birthday, and as depressing an idea as it is to think of Joey filing for Medicare, it’s not as depressing as the fact that he’s not here to do it. As ever, we’ve got a Ramones playlist cocked and ready for your listening pleasure, but we’ve all pulled together a six-pack of occasions when Joey turned up in various films and TV series. We’re not counting documentaries, though, just the good stuff.
