EDITORS’ NOTES

The Ramones finished up their career with this, their 2,263rd and final concert. It was recorded for “Billboard Live” at The Palace in Los Angeles on Aug. 6, 1996, and features the band running through their set at the usual lightning speed that was their approach in the '90s. Original bassist Dee Dee Ramone stops by for “Love Kills.” Lemmy from Motörhead joins the band for a run through his tribute to the group “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.” Rancid's Tim Armstrong and Lars Frederiksen stick around for “Listen to My Heart” and “We’re a Happy Family.” Chris Cornell and Ben Shepherd of Soundgarden step up for “Chinese Rocks,” and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder joins them for the finale, a cover of The Dave Clark Five’s “Anyway You Want It.” The band are in fine form throughout, running through the favorites one after another. With the exception of “The Crusher,” the songs here are among The Ramones' best known. Fans are still encouraged to seek out their first live album, It’s Alive, but this farewell is poignant in a way that Ramones concerts rarely were.
