This awesome jersey style shirt is for the iconic punk band the Ramones. They were first formed in New York City in 1974 and many consider them to be the first true punk rock group. This shirt is from after 1983 when Richie Reinhardt, who was dubbed Richie Ramone, joined the band as the drummer and replacement for Marky Ramone. Richie wound up being the only Ramones drummer to sing lead vocals on any of the band's songs. He also wrote the song "Somebody Put Something in My Drink" which remained a Ramones setlist staple for many years.
The Ramones released the album Too Tough to Die in 1984. The album was produced by ex-band member Tommy Ramone and Ed Stasium. Although critics praised it for being reminiscent of the group's earlier sound, the album performed poorly in sales. Too Tough to Die was followed by the release of the single "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg" which was written in response to President Ronald Reagan visiting a German military cemetery. The song was featured on the band's 1986 album Animal Boy. The following year the band recorded their final album with Richie on the drums, Halfway to Sanity.
The tag says medium but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult small.
