As some of BeatIt viewers already know, Marky Ramone – former drummer for the legendary the Ramones – is scheduled to perform in Poland. He will be appearing with his band Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg at Cieszanów Rock Festival on Aug 19.


Recently, Marky has shared his list of top-five punk songs with the Rolling Stone magazine. Perhaps he will play one of them at the Cieszanów Rock Festival?

Here they are:

The Kinks – “All Day and All of the Night”

The Trashmen – “Surfin’ Bird”

Love – “7 and 7 Is”

Richard Hell and the Voidoids – “Blank Generation”

The Music Machine – “Talk Talk”

Marky Ramone replaced the original Ramones drummer Tommy Ramone and had two stints with the band: 1978 – 1983 and 1987 – 1996. The first album that featured Marky was “Road To Ruin”, which includes the classic “I Wanna Be Sedated”. He was with the band right until they retired in 1996.
