Ok, this list was also done at the request of a friend (the same one that requested the list for L.A. Bands). I can safely say that choosing 5 bands for this list was way harder than 5 bands from L.A. I’ll be doing this in the same format. Here goes:

THE RAMONES
Formed in 1974.
Essential Albums: The Ramones (1976), Rocket to Russia (1977), Ramones Mania (1988), and All the Stuff: Volumes 1 & 2 (1990).
