Fate was not kind to the Ramones. The Queens foursome played a pivotal role in the development of punk rock  (and really most popular music of the past 40 years), but they never had anything resembling a hit single, playing clubs all the way to their final shows. They finally started to become cool in the early 2000s – right around the time Joey, Dee Dee and Johnny all passed away within a few years of each other. Tommy's death in July means that there's not a single original member of the group left. Their legacy does continue to grow, and there's word that a new documentary, book and even a Martin Scorsese movie is in the works. We asked our readers to vote on their favorite Ramones albums. Here are the results.
