Ramones Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award

Well it’s about time.

Punk pioneers the Ramones received a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Grammys. On hand to receive the award were Ramones drummers Tommy and Marky—Richie made a speech but apparently didn’t receive an award?!—and accepting on behalf of Johnny, Dee Dee, and Joey were Johnny’s wife Linda, Joey’s brother Mickey Leigh, and John Cafiero, who manages Johnny’s and Dee Dee’s estates.

Enjoy this playlist that includes the acceptance speeches, as well as some red carpet footage with Marky.
