Shepard Fairey's Subliminal Projects gallery in Los Angeles will showcase a posthumous art exhibition by Dee Dee Ramone to mark the 10th anniversary of his death, the Los Angeles Times reports. Dee Dee Ramone: A Memorial Exhibition will run from October 26th through November 17th and will feature 19 canvases, five paintings on wood and one mixed-media work on card stock. Some of the works are collaborations between the Ramones bassist and artist-musician Paul Kostabi and between the musician and his widow, Barbara Zampini. None of the canvases will be for sale.

Ramone, born Douglas Glenn Colvin, died on June 5th, 2002. Los Angeles' La Luz De Jesus Gallery held a gallery tribute for Ramone in 2010 which featured some of Ramone's artwork.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
